Modern racecars have very stiff suspensions. When travelling over uneven ground, these racecars lose grip, and lose time.
Balanced Suspension is a clean sheet approach to suspension design. It allows a suspension to be very supple, so that it can absorb bumps and undulations, thus giving a smooth ride and high levels of grip. At the same time the suspension can be very stiff, giving flat handling and minimal ride height changes.
