I'm still not finish with basic ..
At race track what is the basic routine that we should check /tune to suit our car to track?
Is it ? Pls. correct me if i'm wrong :-
It is really significant effect to my car. For an example, i start with 40/40 all round. But if my car make a big corner, push in corner, understeer I will start to think to have more grip in the front and less for the rear. So I change shore to 37(F)/40(R). and then test again. I confirm in my track it's work. The car will have more grip in front, small corner and start to react as it want to oversteer now. Ok next..
2. Ride Height
I will check if my ride height is at "normal" condition. Meaning the different between Front and Rear about 0-2mm diff. If I got my front ride height is 5 so my rear should around 6-7. Emm.. that's it nothing much to do on that . Ok next...
I will set the droop ( How much height the chasis can be lift before the tires goes off from the ground). So if my rear ride height now is 6 and it can be lift until 10mm height before the tires go off the ground, that consider 10-6 = 4mm droop. So if my car go into corner and tend to oversteer my thinking is the car has too much grip in front and the chasis rear lift if possible to the much of the droop /lift limit (In this case it's 4mm). Weight transfer too much to the front. SO ...I decide to reduce the lift limit let say from 4mm to 2mm. And test ... but sometime it still tend to oversteer that will start make me
Ok this might need a combination solution I think! So I go to the spring...
If it still tend to oversteer i will be thinking to harden the front tension as to reduce the front grip. So I tighten both of the shock collar. This will increase the hardness or front spring tension which i tought will prevent the front suspension too "dip" and reduce the weight transfer to the front. Or very seldom I change the spring hardness. And by tighten the spring in front this will make my front ride height increase. So to keep my front height to the 5mm I force it by using the front anti roll bar screw ( front droop screw)I'm not sure if this is correct to do
Pls. correct me if this wrong..
All gurus out there .. please do comment if any of my routine above is incorrect or if can share with us on simple tips ? Thanks. Appreciate that.
