What can I do?
Firstly, the front is less boxy and more sculptured to cheat the wind. Then the engineers equipped the vehicle with an active air dam that only deploys at higher speeds. Grille shutters that open or close automatically also help reduce drag (and help warm up the truck faster in the winter).

No formal optimization procedure was followed to select these two values but it was nonetheless intended that the stiff configuration would have a larger pneumatic damping, to reduce, as will be shown, roll angles and settling times. As mentioned, the system toggles between configurations depending on the vibration predictions and handling assessment.

AUSTIN, TexasAn electrical suspension system for cars and trucks developed by researchers at The University of Texas at Austin has demonstrated a fivefold reduction of shock and vibration to the passengers, double the off-road top speed and better handling in cornering, all resulting in improved off-road fuel economy.

More importantly, Standard Manufacturing claimed that the suspension system, in which every one of the eight wheels could articulate up and down independently, would give it the same mobility on uneven ground as a tracked vehicle. At the same time, Excalibur would have significantly higher speeds on rough terrain and improved roads, but with fewer maintenance requirements, reducing the operating costs compared to traditional tracked designs.
