Default Traction Roll

Wondering how to limit the effects of traction roll on a Tourer.With ten years of racing i havent had this before. Its not corner speed as other drivers are the same speeds, not tyres as we are using same compounds.

Ps we race on a grippy bitch track, Help , ideas Thanks MarkM

Try using this;



There is also superglueing the sidewalls of the tyres so if the car tries to grip via the sidewall the glue won't allow it.

Add sway bars or go with a thicker bar if already using.

Things I would do are:

Make your roll centers as low as you can (camber link more parallel to the arm)

Also make the camber link as long as you can

Make your shocks more horizontal, lay them down

Run the thickest sway bar you can in the front

Glue the outside sidewall of the the tire

Reduce the amount of droop

Run stiffer springs


Some of these were already mentioned

Well I'm assuming its a carpet track, where there's a limit how low your ride height can be, usually 5 or 4mm.
