Sorry if it are not the better words, but my vocabulary in english is very limited. I have to add a signature saying something like "Feel free to correct any spelling or grammar mistake, I am still learning"
I know cars with hydropneumatic suspension have the e-brake on the front wheels. You know, those cars that sink a few inches after the engine stops. (Citroen etc.)
All others have it on the rear wheels. I never heared of any car that has it to all wheels.
Well, on topic now. Why are we 2 months after the tyre physic message and we don't have it (or at least in beta version)?
not sure if this has already been addressed(just started reading this thread), but pulling a G amount in a corner is different from skid pad results. I've pulled about 1G in a 240sx on an autox course where from the factory is only supposed to be capable of .89. Street tires and flat surface, it's a matter of using weight transfer to your advantage.
throwing a car into a corner will put more weight onto the wheels that need it. More weight is more grip. While temporary, you can at least pull some extra Gs.
Skid pad tests are done with no weight transfer. Think about when you go into a turn, the outside of the car compresses, weight is transferred. When the car settles (in this case, mid turn) it is back to the limit of the tires, and not really affected by weight transfer(assuming that the surface is flat). I hope that makes more sense. Basically, skid pad results are lower than what a car can actually attain on a meter.
