Chassis performance greatly influences driving in the turn inn movement. Spec of the active damper is simulated to achieve a chassis that satisfies various requirements. In this paper, an MR-damper (Magneto-Rheological fluid damper), which is high-response active damper, is chosen. The MR-damper is mounted in FSAE vehicles and controlled vehicle behavior electronically in a simulator. As a result, the MR-damper brought a big effect to pitch action rather than roll action, and an initial damping force effected vehicle behavior more than damping force change ratio.
