    Well written article by Billy. The example pictures were especially helpful in visualizing the concepts being introduced.
    The stiffness topic and camber compliance was quite interesting and educational.
    Not quite sure of the units AuroraSports chooses to use for stiffness (GPa) but that is a topic best discussed over a beer.
