Car Specifications

Post by RTW0223 on Wed Oct 03, 2012 10:49 am

Does anyone know where I can find specific parameters for my car (1992 LX 5.0), including that of the coefficient of drag, frontal area, stock 0-60 time? I am also looking for tire rolling resistances of certain tires.

In my Advanced Technology Vehicle class we used given parameters and modeled the forces due to gravity, aerodynamics, rolling resistance, road load, tractive force, tractive power, tractive energy, inertial force, wheel torque.

So I think it would be neat to model my own car!

Ryan that was a mouthful! I like your thought and ideas regarding your car. Couldn't you contact Ford directly since they would have all that engineering data in some sort of archives.

Hope you find what your looking for.
