Chassis and car dynamics
What does the chassis of a car have to do about its dynamics? The way a car handles? They say, this car has a stiff chassis, it corners better. What do they mean by the 'stiff chassis'? When cornering hard, does the chassis actually bend?! It should not, 'cause it will distort the car then! Then whats in a stiff chassis?
Also, hows a ladder on frame chassis gonna differ from a monocoque one? Why do SUVs prefer ladder on frame?

hey psycho..this one's right up your alley...explain it to him...
danny, ladder is more heavier but much much stronger and rugged...thats why suv prefer ladder
also monocoque can get easily twisted and then the whole shell needs replacement..costlier!!!
