A Rig Test costs £2,000 per day at Thetford,
including use of transducers, assistance in installing and dismounting the
vehicle, a rig operator full time, and use of analysis software. Refer to
the relevant contact for Rig Test charges elsewhere.
Additional engineering support at most sites can
be pre-booked at extra cost.
It is suggested that a Rig Test is carried out using
a "live" vehicle, is confined to one day, is preceded by a track
test to set springs and bars, and is succeeded by a track test to validate
rig results. A one day test will allow between 20 and 50 different suspension
settings to be assessed and compared and will yield, perhaps, 4 or 5 "optimal"
