Main Question or Discussion Point
I understand the basis behind the idea that a rotating wheel driven by an engine will generate torque and the static friction of the ground will push opposite to its direction forcing the tire to go forward. However, I cant seem to understand how the wheel can drag the chassis with it. Does the middle of the tire, which will follow a linear path if the tire rotates and drives along, push the wishbone? Is it the cv axle that push anything?because on a bicycle, when the tire rolls in front, the center of it, which follows a linear path, pushes the bike chassis. How does it work for a FWD car with suspension then?
