ChassisSim isn't just another race car simulation package that only produces lap time. ChassisSim has a complete range of toolboxes that can accurately test every component of the car that affects its performance: springs. anti roll bars, shock absorbers, ride heights, gear ratios, engine power, wings etc.

The toolboxes can be added to ChassisSim Standard only (ChassisSim Elite comes with the full set).

7 Post Rig Analysis/Bode Plot

This runs your car as if it was on a full 7 post rig analysis machine. It is the ideal tool to review the frequency response of your car. It then outputs the results to a data file that can be viewed in Excel or Matlab. Price: $POA

Auto Bump Generation

By using logged data and the vehicle setup, ChassisSim can calculate the bump profile of the circuit. The bump profile is how the road surface varies throughout the circuit. Price: $POA

Aero Modelling

This Toolbox allows ChassisSim to produce logs of Front and Rear Ride Height vs Downforce, Drag and Aero Balance. Simply put it is a powerful tool that allows you to determine the aeromap of the car. Price: $POA

Tyre Force Modelling

This will produce the maximum Tyre Force vs Load characteristics for the front and rear tyres, based on the vehicle setup and logged data. This is a centre piece for determing the tyre models for your racecar. Price: $POA

Aero Setup Optimisation

Given upper and lower limits of downforce and aero balance, ChassisSim will autonomously determine the best possible selection of downforce and aero distribution for a given car and circuit. Price: $POA

Mechanical Setup Optimisation

Given the upper and lower limits of front and rear springs, and front and rear roll bars, ChassisSim will autonomously determine the best possible selection of front and rear springs, plus front and rear roll bars for a given car and circuit. Price: $POA

Damper Setup Optimisation

Given the upper and lower limits of front and rear low speed and high speed damping front and rear, ChassisSim will determine the optimum damper curves front and rear for a given car and circuit. Price: $POA

Terminology:

A arm – Vee shaped suspension arm attached to chasis & upright of car

Anti dive – the use use of mechanical means to reduce the amount the front of the car dives under brakes

Anti roll bar – A rod or tube linked to the suspension that resists the rolling of the car. The bar twists as the car rolls

Anti squat - Is the use use of mechanical means to reduce the amount the rear of the car squats under acceleration

Bump – the term used to describe the force required to compress ashock absorber

Camber – The angle of the wheel as seen from front on.

Castor – the amount the top pivit of the upright leans back in relation to the bottom pivot

Centre of gravity – The point at which the car is perfectly balanced

Damper / shock absorber – Mechanical device to dampen (control) the natural oscillations of the spring

Droop – the amount the wheels move down from ride height

Instant centre – found by projecting a lines from the suspension arms until they meet

Instantaneous roll centre – the roll centre when the car instant the car is in its dynamic state.

Motion ratio – the amount that the spring moves in relation to how far the wheel moves

Pitch – the rotation of the car either under acceleration or braking

Rebound – the force resisting the extension of a damper / shock absorber

Ride height – height of certain designated points on a chassis from the ground

Roll axis – the line joining the front & roll centres

Roll centre – Geometric point about which the vehicle rotates when cornering

Spring rate – the load required to move the spring a certain distance ie newtons per millimetre

Toe In – When a pair of wheels are closer at the front than the rear

Toe out – When a pair of wheels are closer at rear than the front

Wheel rate – the actual spring that the tyre sees after the effects of the motion ratio are taken into account

Wishbone – Vee shaped suspension arm attached to chasis & upright of car
