For the increasingly popular stabilizer bar with Watt's link in the FSAE stadium which is known as Z-bar, design and optimize the stabilizer bar with Watt's link based on the roll characteristics of the car. This paper introduces the working principle of the stabilizer bar with Watt's link, calculates roll stiffness and the stiffness of the stabilizer bar, and analyzes the structure and the force of the Watt's link, designs the size of the Watt's link and checks its strength. And then analyze and optimize the Watt's link with ANSYS, at the same time, build the dynamics modal with ADAMS and analyze the influence of the Watt's link to the handling stability with dynamics simulation.
