An inquiry came up in another thread, (thanks Joe!) about how to determin the height of a cars center of gravity. I am assuming that it has not been answered because the right guys have not read it. So here goes the bump. With corner weights we can find the center of gravity on an X axis but to determine where to establish the optimum instant center, we need to know how high the center of gravity is from the ground right? Or Y axis. Anyone have a cool way of figuring that out other than turning the car on its side?
Thanks in advance..

Mike

Every chassis builder I know uses the cam height as the center. It's not an exact point in many cars but it is a constant you work from. It's normally close too. RM
