==Overview==
 
This guide is intended to be an intro and complement to Racecar Vehicle Dynamics, not a replacement. This page is a collection of specific insights in regards to designing a Baja suspension that should serve as a useful study aid in reading of Racecar Vehicle Dynamics and other suspension documentation.
 
 
In a single sentence, the goal and purpose of suspension is to distribute reactive forces in a way desired by the driver. This is done through the use of linkages, springs, and dampers. Links limit motion of the wheel to a single path and very stiffly resist (until they break) any forces not in line with this path. Springs will apply forces normal to the direction they are displaced. Dampers will apply forces normal to and based on the velocity they are displaced.
