The dynamic behavior optimization of the Formula SAE car built at the Università degli Studi di Firenze is discussed. A virtual model was built using MSC Adams Motorsports, in order to simulate the kinematics and dynamics of the car. A data acquisition system was mounted on board to record all the data useful to setup the car and the virtual model too. The multibody approach was coupled with a multi objective optimizer to start a design of experiments that was able to find the robust design that maximizes the performance along the Formula SAE track.
