Description

Custom Lightweight Upright, designed and engineered to custom specification. Optimised for metal additive manufacturing in titanium, high performance aluminium alloy or conventional machining.

The benefits:

  • Unsprung weight reduction, depending on benchmark up to 50% possible
  • Custom bearing housing / hub unit mounting points e.g.:
    • HBU3 bolt-on and pre-loaded bearing units
    • Possibility of 2x large size Angular Contact Ball Bearing with custom spacing for increased stiffness
  • Sensor integration mounting features e.g.:
    • Brake disc temperature sensors
    • Wheel speed sensors
    • Accelerometers
  • Custom specific brake caliper mounting
    • Custom caliper bolt spacing e.g. 130mm, 225mm or other
    • Caliper offset
    • Caliper mounting angle to lower the CoG
  • Increase the camber stiffness
  • Provisions for optimal brake cooling ducting
  • Custom bespoke suspension kinematics
    • Adapted bearing position for reduced ride height while maintaining suspension kinematics
    • Dedicated and customer specific caster, toe, camber and bump steer adjustment range.
    • Increased steering geometry for increased steering angle (e.g. for Drifting and RallyX)
  • Option to customise the suspension joints
    • Single shear balljoints
    • Double shear spherical joints

Specifically applicable for:

  • Motorsport
    • Hill climb
    • Cup series
    • Time-Attack
    • Rally and RallyX
    • etc.
  • Automotive prototyping
  • Automotive start-up
  • Niche automotive super/hyper car manufacturer
