The formatting isn't correct in HTML, images and equations are also too low in resolution. For best viewing, please download the PDF version of the paper that includes a proper table of contents and hyperlinking.
"Design and Integration of Suspension, Brake and Steering Systems." This is a follow up to the previous paper, completed in May '00, and has more on the mechanical design of our Formula SAE car. Here is the PDF version of the paper.
