Beam Axle Torque Calculations


75% of the cars weight is applied to the axle in cornering 75% of the cars weight = 0.75 80 + 220 9.81 = 2207.25 Adding in the safety factor = 2207.25 2 = 4414.5 Adding in the friction from the tyres = 4414.5 2 = 8829 The radius of the wheel/tyre is .255m the torque is = = 8829 .255 = 2251.395
