Ferrari 458 Italia Suspension, SCM and Tires

The Ferrari 458 Italia has an innovative new suspension architecture compared to the F430: the front wishbones have L shape arms while there is a multilink suspension to the rear. This innovative approach results in greater longitudinal flexibility, which improves the car’s ability to absorb bumps, reduces suspension noise, boosts transverse rigidity and consequently improve 458 Italia’s handling and responsiveness.

These characteristics combined with specific tire development further improve overall vertical rigidity for less body roll and allow the introduction of a more direct steering ratio (11.9 degrees compared to the 16.9 of the F430, resulting in a 30 percent improvement). Quicker and more responsive steering consequently provides higher safety on both road and track driving experiences. The car new suspensions also offer a better compromise between vibrational and acoustic comfort as well as sportiness.

The Magnetorheological Suspension control (SCM) was first introduced in the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano and uses a fluid which viscosity instantaneously reacts to an electronically controlled magnetic field generated inside the damper. The control software adjusts the intensity of the magnetic field every millisecond, for an improved calibration and responsiveness on uneven ground. Compared to the previous version, …

Alloy Rims And Tires VS Steel Rims And Tires

With the development in every field of life so many modifications have comes in the field of transport. To make vehicles comfortable and easiest to carry is the aim of every technician. Second point which is necessary to be kept in mind is the expenses not only the expenses of buying but also maintenance charges. Our vehicle needs its parts to be replaced after a time or in case of some accidents. So an overview about the vehicle we are going to purchase must be taken for the ease of life. Here there is a comparison between alloy and steel rims and tires.Alloy rims and tires are the product of the modern time. It has been designed according to the demand and necessities of people. Alloy rims are most suitable for the tires with small radius as compared to the steel rims. They are lighter in weight as compared to steel rims so they can dissipate heat faster than steel rims and tires. The result is more efficiency because faster heat dissipation leads to cooler brakes so making breaking system fast.

Alloy rims does not create too much heat inside the …
