Subjectively the impact of car body stiffening on the handling performance can be perceived. The impact of reinforcements of the vehicle body on the vehicle performance has been studied in the past (see [1], [2], [3] and [4]). These studies had a main focus on the objective observations on the level of body forces and body deformations.
