内容紹介

If you are determined to WIN but you have more motivation than money, Think Fast is the book you have been looking for. Neil's clear and entertaining guidance will show you how to overcome your competitors' bigger budgets and finish ahead of them. Unlike any other auto racing technology book, Think Fast is not about the technology, but about WHY TO use some technologies and avoid others in your quest to WIN races. Think Fast can help any race car driver or race engineer tackle the big challenges and cross the finish line FIRST. Think Fast is a professional racing industry insider's detailed description of his unique process that makes racing drivers and race cars faster and work together more effectively. Both driver and car development techniques are covered, including very cost effective approaches to problems faced by every motorsports competitor. There are numerous ideas that will help any racer, from an autocrosser on a shoestring budget to a top echelon racing team engineer with extensive, state of the art engineering development resources. Both road course and oval track racers can benefit from the many original concepts that are included in Think Fast. Highly technical subjects are presented clearly, while mathematical equations are avoided entirely. Think Fast is intended to complement other racing technology books that are already on the reader's shelf. Think Fast is divided into two sections, Fast Fundamentals and Fast Physics. Fast Fundamentals presents the short list of challenges faced by the racer that matter the most and includes an extensive, clear discussion about each challenge. Fast Fundamentals includes an extensive chapter on highly innovative race car driver development techniques. Fast Physics is more technically oriented and presents hundreds of lessons learned, engineering concepts, tips, and tricks that have never been revealed in print until now.

In addition to working with Jim Hall, Neil worked with drivers John Andretti and Teo Fabi. Neil then joined Swift Engineering and designed 28% of the parts in Swift's first Champ car, the 007.i. That car won its debut race with Michael Andretti driving. Neil has also been a technical advisor to Texas A&M University's Formula SAE program and a design judge every year at the Formula SAE California competition. Additional projects that Neil has accomplished at Swift include chief engineering the design and construction of the Eclipse Concept Jet in 200 days, and working on projects for DARPA.

This is an excellent book that covers the "why-to" versus the "how-to". Roberts assumes you have read the Carroll Smith "To Win" series of books, and it is necessary that you do so to get the most from this book. Roberts is very effective at provoking thought of how to apply professional level racing practices to an amateur level. The peer-to-peer style of writing makes for an easy read, and bridges the gap between thinking like a driver and thinking like an engineer.

"Think Fast" book was very easy to read and understand the principles behind why a car does what it does.

I bought the book (along with several competing books) because I was trying to redesign the suspension on my racecar. It is no longer a street vehicle, so I was trying to remove the 'street handling' characteristics. I found that Neil presented a clear path to help me with this, beyond the theory and numbers seen in other texts.

I have been racing for nearly 50 years and I still learned a lot. A different and important perspective that every racer should read.

5つ星のうち HASH(0x80be8b58) Carroll Smith Rehashed 2010/8/19
投稿者 Mike - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
While I have learned a few things from this book, it seems like most of it is already covered in Carroll Smith's books. Not much new material in it, especially considering it is about 30-40 years more modern than Smith's books. I think Texas A&M are probably the best Formula SAE team of all time, and Mr. Roberts probably played a significant role in this. Despite this, I find there are way to many generalizations that while may be appropriate for road racing type cars, are not appropriate for FSAE.
