Re: What do I need to know other than the parts and how many in order to build a car?

Well, to design a car from scratch, you need to know the physics of how the suspension and drivetrain work. To design it properly you need to know how strong the metal you will be dealing with is and what kind of forces it will be subjected to. You could make a workable car by just guessing, but there's a good chance a lot of stuff would be wrong with it and would need a lot of revision and rebuilding.

I don't really understand the point of your question.
