So if you missed virtually every page of our June 2003 Suspension Tech special, then you blew an opportunity to design the best off-road suspension system ever. As we said then, anything would go, meaning high tech or low buck would both pique our interest.
What you'll find here are the best of the bundle, and believe you me, there are quite a few of you in the wrong line of day jobs--get yourselves an engineering degree and change the off-road world!
These are the entries that each scored a 4-Wheel & Off-Road license plate and a copy of HP Books 4-Wheel & Off-Road Chassis and Suspension Handbooks, available at penguinputnam.com. You'll find the winning descriptions (in no particular order) as well as our thoughts on why the setup would be cool--and why it might not be.
