I agree - to a certain extend. Even if you could input Nm/s2 and stuff -
which numbers would you put in? I'm sure you'd have to experiment anyway.
Springs and dampers is no hokus - if it's too stiff, make it softer, if
it's too soft - make it stiffer. Make the parameters adjustable as you
drive and adjust them until you're happy. No problem.
