front suspension progress
A few problems due to the rare graphical material appeared during the progress of the front suspension parts inside of the monocoque. Regarding to this picture I reasoned, that the R18 has an internal anti roll bar like F1 cars. But due to a picture of the R15+ on ten-tenths.com I realized, that the ARB must be mounted at the outside at the front bulkhead (you can see it here under the electric power steering). So I had to remove my ARB and design a new one.
From pictures I assume, that the R18 has non adjustable ARBs. A bit strange for a racing car, but I can’t find any advice that tells me the opposite. The regs prohibits driver adjustable suspension parts, but maybe there’s somewhere an adjusting screw for the mechanics.
Beside that I’m working at the damper/spring unit. The rocker arms and the single dampers with their torsion bars are already mounted. The heave spring-damper is under progress.
The pedal arrangement is finished but a sensor for each brake master cylinder is missing. The first part of the electric power steering unit is also finished. The steering column is in work.
