THIS paper explains how the design problems were solved for the Firebird, a high-power, high-speed, light-weight, turbopowered car.
Broad latitude was allowed the chassis engineer in designing the frame, suspension system, brakes, and steering. The result is the application of many unique features on the Firebird, some of which are used on an automobile for the first time.
