Throttle control is a vital part of the driver’s skill set, so it’s important that engineers have the understanding and the tools to measure it
Why analysing the data when a race driver is neither on the throttle nor the brakes is an excellent way of honing outright performance
OptimumG’s lead engineer talks us trough the braking zone in the new installment in his key performance indicators analysis series
In this month’s article, OptimumG looks at how maths can be used to improve driver braking performance on track
The way they apply the brake is what separates the good drivers from the average, but just how do you measure their level of braking aggression? OptimumG’s Claude Rouelle explains all
In part two of his analysis of a driver-s key performance indicators OptimumG president Claude Rouelle looks at how the steering integral can help identify understeer and oversteer in a racecar.
In a brand new series of technical insights OptimumG president Claude Rouelle focuses on a race driver’s key performance indicators – kicking off with steering wheel smoothness
A seven post rig is all well and good but when it comes to lateral and longitudinal tyre loads OptimumG engineer Claude Rouelle believes there’s a need for a fresh approach.
In Part 2 of OptimumG’s explanation of track asymmetry Claude Rouelle looks at the impact of individual corners on lap time.
OptimumG’s Claude Rouelle explains why, and where, you might want to make use of an asymmetric set-up on your racecar. Having difficulties convincing someone to use more camber on the right-hand side than on the left for a counter-clockwise circuit; running higher tyre pressure on one side than the other; using different damper settings?
