When it all works, it's a thing of beauty.

I came across a video clip this week and thought it would mike a nice blog post.
It's about a minute of footage shot from a camera strapped to the underside of a Mazda Miata. The car is driven round a short autocross circuit with the camera filming. It embodies everything I write about on this site. You can see all the components doing their job, from the springs and shocks, to the sway bars, differential and even down to the amount of tyre deformation in the corners. Watch it - it's a thing of beauty - and it will give you a new insight into what goes on underneath your car when you drive it:
