    Optimized Geometry

    I use a machine shop here in Tucson that seems to be very reasonable $$ wise and has 3D printing and possibly 3D scanning capabilities. PM me and I’ll send u their details.

    Optimized Geometry

    I’m using a suite that is purely math based and much like matlab.. Yes all basic physics scenarios can be accounted for. There will definitely be constraints, a few being setup of non suspension related components and screen to shop fabrication variance, hoping to keep that to a min. I’m in the...

    Optimized Geometry

    This is a new field for me, so any comments are totally welcome. Yes you are correct that mathematical optimization has been around for decades, however processing power has recently reached a place that any home computer can accomplish most tasks. If you’d like you can send me a few dimensions...

    Optimized Geometry

    My background is math and computer programming, worked on building AI algorithms for a genetic co for a bit.. Applying that knowledge which is complicated mathematical optimization, to the many equations known as the DW. I happened to find a great suite of 3D simulation software which will...

    Optimized Geometry

    I can design if needed, or we can work to modify a current design..

    Money is a tricky thing.. its more the speed of money that matters, for example I get a pay check every 2 weeks like 70/80% of this country, that pay check is merely $ moving from vendors to my boss to me then to other vendors like mortgage companies, grocery stores etc... suppose that paycheck...

    Coronavirus? What Events Next..

    This is a tough one: is economic impact greater or worse than loss of life? A long and drawn out analysis using Kantian ethics and Monetarist Economic policy would ensue.. there would be graphs and at the end of the day we would all agree: "this sucks"

    Time to get a bit serious about this I'd say. NOTE the graph above shows how China has contained it: the red army built walls around affected areas along with 5 massive hospitals with thousands of respirators.. Military dictatorship working at its best..

    I need to Check my A-Arm suspension geometry to desert race!

    Double wishbone. Continuing a bit on progress: I was able to get access to some great simulation software that can actually run optimizations on 3d models, so at this point I’m considering offering design and development services in the future, after my project is completed. One way the...

    I need to Check my A-Arm suspension geometry to desert race!

    There are many papers and a few good programs that use the process of mathematical optimization for the DW... because really a DW is just a math problem. Without getting into detail, these exact programs are finding solutions for self driving cars and everything else that is called "AI" these...

    I need to Check my A-Arm suspension geometry to desert race!

    I see the term "optimize" mentioned a few places on pg2 here... Are you referring to mathematical optimization? where you set parameters for optimization and let an algorithm or software find the results..

    To the OP: Parts alone will be more than 25-30K on the above truck. If I was building a desert racer/pre-runner no doubt I would have bought something like it...

    Tucson. It'll be sometime before I'm driving it, however just wondering how it all works. Thanks very much for the response. I'll be happy to check out the Mint course...

    On Topic Getting into racing

    I'm in the process of building an off road race truck(same boat as the op), however am not totally decided on racing as of yet. It will be built to SCORE spec regarding safety features but will be an Ultra4 flavor.. Question: I live in the southwest and can travel anywhere in the area.. Can I...
