In the world of big-league NASCAR racing, drivers routinely push themselves and their machines to the absolute limits. Nothing can be left to chancethe car, the driver, the crew, and certainly not the teams leader, the crew chief. At this level, races are often decided by thousandths of a second, and the competition is so fierce that accomplished race teams can go years between victories. Thats what makes Larry McReynoldss success as a NASCAR Nextel Cup crew chief so astounding.In this pressure-cooker environment with so much at stake, knowledge and experience are held tightly and rarely revealed. Until now. For the first time, one of NASCARs most successful, best-known crew chiefs shares his secrets for running a successful, winning team. Larry holds nothing backits all here, in his own words, from the highly technical analysis demanded from each race to the critical interpersonal management skills that keep a crew motivated and focused on winning. Larry covers a wide range of topics and tells you everything you need to know to get yourself and your team from the shop to the track, prepared and ready to race. These elements include: Setting up a shop and establishing a crew; safety systems; stringing your race car; understanding camber, caster, and kingpin angle; tuning with springs, shocks, and sway bars; understanding wheelbase, track, toe, and ackerman; understanding ride height, weight, and cross weight; chassis geometry; finding the right setup and preparing your car for the track; brakes; aerodynamics; gears and gear selection; and testing.Then Larry takes you to the next level in finely tuned chapters that concentrate on racecraft with tips for qualifying, developing race strategies, and diagnosing and solving a myriad of problems during a race, particularly those with handling. Larry even provides recommendations for post-race checks and efficient weekly maintenance.In addition to being one of the most successful crew chiefs in NASCAR historywinning races with Davey Allison, Ernie Irvan, Dale Earnhardt, and othersLarry is also one of the most personable. He readily offers his experience and hard-earned knowledge, and draws examples from his most challenging races. With his concise tips and no-nonsense approach, Larry is the crew chiefs crew chief, and he reveals the secrets that made him a winner. If you let him, he will also make you a winner.

Maurice Olley, one of the great automotive design, research and development engineers of the 20th century, had a career that spanned two continents. Olley is perhaps best known for his systematic approach to ride and handling. His work was so comprehensive that many of the underlying concepts, test procedures, analysis, and evaluation techniques are still used in the auto industry today. Olley’s mathematical analyses cover design essentials in a physically understandable way. Thus they remain as useful today as when they were first developed. For example, they are easily programmed for study or routine use and for checking the results of more complex programs. Chassis Design – Principles and Analysis is based on Olley’s technical writings, and is the first complete presentation of his life’s work. This new book provides insight into the development of chassis technology and its practical application by a master. Many examples are worked out in the text and the analytical developments are underpinned by Olley’s years of design experience. COMPLETE CONTENTS Maurice Olley – his life and times Tyres and steady–state cornering – slip angle effects (primary) Steady–state cornering– steer effects (secondary) Transient cornering Ride Oscillations of the unsprung Suspension linkages Roll, roll moments, and skew rates Fore–and–aft forces Leaf springs – combined suspension spring and linkage Appendices Comprehensive and well–illustrated with over 400 figures and tables, as well as numerous appendices.

Every one of the many millions of cars manufactured annually worldwide uses shock absorbers, otherwise known as dampers. These form a vital part of the suspension system of any vehicle, essential for optimizing road holding, performance and safety. This, the second edition of the Shock Absorber Handbook (first edition published in 1999), remains the only English language book devoted to the subject. Comprehensive coverage of design, testing, installation and use of the damper has led to the book's acceptance as the authoritative text on the automotive applications of shock absorbers. In this second edition, the author presents a thorough revision of his book to bring it completely up to date. There are numerous detail improvements, and extensive new material has been added particularly on the many varieties of valve design in the conventional hydraulic damper, and on modern developments such as electrorheological and magnetorheological dampers. "The Shock Absorber Handbook, 2nd Edition" provides a thorough treatment of the issues surrounding the design and selection of shock absorbers. It is an invaluable handbook for those working in industry, as well as a principal reference text for students of mechanical and automotive engineering.
