SUSPENSION WITHOUT SPRINGS

Lotus Engineering has invested two years of development in their Active Suspension system. It was tested in Nigell Mansell's Lotus 92 at the first two Grands Prix of the 1983 season, where it finished reliably and with reasonable placings. Lotus is now seeking major tire or car manufacturers to come in with money to support and speed up future development work. Much of the work to be done is in the areas of production engineering and manufacturing costs. An insert with this article gives a detailed description and drawing of the Active Suspension system.
