We’ve made good progress on redesigning our unsprung mass and suspension systems in preparation for the move from 13″ to 10″ wheels. To aid this redesign we took UGR-18 to WSKC for testing. We have been able to collect vehicle dynamics telemetry data in order to help with design verification for UGR-19. The focus for the day was on suspension and unsprung mass, however, the team also ran noise tests on our exhaust silencer to validate Ricardo WAVE simulations. We were able to experiment with ways to minimise noise while maximising power, such as body panel dampening. The testing will be invaluable for the designing of UGR-19.
