Measuring the chassis twist

Measuring the chassis twist

The test required six measuring points equally distributed along the chassis, including one at both the front axle and rear axle.  Steel tubes were positioned on both sides of the car, one metre from the centreline.  Measurements were taken before and after the chassis had load applied and the engineer used this data to determine the result.  I was very pleased that it easily passed the legal requirement.
