How it Works

Design

The roll suspension has extreme camber recovery or gain (more than %100 or the body roll) and since it doesn’t move during dive, the vehicle doesn’t suffer the negative effects of extreme camber recovery design of the roll suspension during dive.

The dive suspension has minimal camber recovery and it minimizes camber change during dive, jounce and etc.  Since the roll suspension and dive suspension work simultaneously in series during roll, the roll suspension also recovers camber lost by the dive suspension.  This way the Sacli system minimizes the negative effects of dive suspension during roll.

The response of the dive suspension during roll due to lateral loads or cornering can also be limited by the distance between its roll center and C of G (moment arm length).  Shortening the moment arm, thus reducing the roll moment also reduces the response of the dive suspension at roll. When the dive suspension loses less camber at roll more of the inner suspension camber recovery translates into camber recovery at the wheel.

Overall Sacli suspension can have the wheels lean into the turn with its extreme camber recovery without suffering the negative effects of extreme camber change during dive.
