Madison Snow Corner Balancing by dangeruss Madison Snow Corner Balancing by dangeruss
Corner balancing is the process of shifting the weight carried by each wheel to approach optimal values. Although some weight can be shifted between wheels by physically relocating parts of the car, the corner balance process is focused on shifting weight by adjusting the suspension spring height.

A properly corner balanced car will handle evenly in left and right turns. Unbalanced handling occurs when front-to-rear weight distribution is not equal for left and right sides. In a symmetric car out-of-balance is easily understood as excessive weight carried by one pair of diagonal wheels resulting in a teeter-totter affect. If the imbalance is extreme, one of the light wheels may be completely off the ground even at rest!

Performance and race cars may have spring rates of 300, 400, 500 lbs/in and higher. Corner balance becomes much more important due to the high spring rates - small changes in height greatly impact weight carried. Additionally, we are much more concerned with handling and performance with race cars so corner balance becomes very important.

3DS MAX, Vray, Photoshop... so many little tools...

Wow! I looked at this and thought "A interesting photo" - until I realized this is a CGI. If you look for a job, take this and go to Slightly Mad Studios. I assume they would be impressed.

Outstanding! Did you model yourself everything in this scene?????I really wonder How much time you spend for this outstanding labor? :-)

Like most complex scenes, this is a mix of modeling, modifying existing meshes, re-using old parts, some purchased stuff, clever texture work etc.  There's little virtue in modeling everything when spare time is a luxury, and deadlines loom ahead. In nearly all cases the client (in this case myself, as this was a fun project.) doesn't care.

So with modeling, texturing, lighting, reworking existing meshes, finding parts, rendering etc., I probably have 36-48 working hours in this. I really don't keep track unless someone's paying for the work.

36-48 hour? You are really fast I think, because there's an incredible detail work in that car shop scene! if you model  lots of thing in that scene with box modeling techniques, you must be really fast modeler :-)congrats again :-)

What about the driver? Wouldn't they off balance the car a bit?

I must be corner balanced then, I can take very sharp turns well. And both my feet touch the ground.
