Racecar drivers have the ability to operate a vehicle at its friction limit without losing control. If autonomous vehicles or driver assistance systems had similar capabilities, many fatal accidents could be avoided. To advance this goal, an autonomous racing controller is designed to gain insights into vehicle control at the friction limits. Adjustable shock absorbers are becoming popular in drag racing. You can adjust their damping characteristics to suit varying tracks and/or track conditions to eliminate wheel hop and tire shake. That leads to improved reaction times. The best adjustable shocks are the ones that offer both compression and extension adjustment. These are better known as double-adjustable shocks. To better understand how double-adjustable shocks can help you win more races, let's take a look at how compression and extension affect a suspension. The main takeaway you got from the book was that to set up a winning suspension in your car, you need to go do your own research and work.
