Resonant Frequency - at what speed does your rig liked to be driven at?
Q: What speed do you drive above the vibrations induced by the lift, engine and all the other stuff that adds to the "good vibrations" of your rig?
ie my rig 2002 E350 Quigley likes to be below 72 mph or above 80... My Jeep XJ it's above and below 53 mph... My MJ it's below 65 and above 68.
I know on a 46,000 hp ship I worked on once it was decided to detune the plant because the resonant frequency occurred at 460 engine rpms and the whole ship would shake in an alarming manner and due to the operating parameters and field of service, vibrations were not an option.
Let me guess the 4x4 Sprinters don't do this as much - cv's and a german factory tuned set up, one would think would have less of this thing inherently... or maybe that's effectively still be beta- tested out of the production line.
I know a few friends w/ Raptors there isn't much of this.
Wondering how other vans are? How is an Agile RIP kit in this regard?
Feel free to discuss...
