Default Droop


Hi. I have personally always checked and measured droop using the chassis stands and droop guage.Although with this method, the setting depends on what size tires are ran and what ride hight you are running.

On more than one occasion I have found set-ups where the driver has measured their car's droop by lifting the car. Ie: The amount the upright/hub carrier drops from where it sits normally with car on it's wheels.

This I think is a more appropriate measurement for droop and more accurate as this can be done irrespective of tire size and ride hight and done on set-up wheels.

So enjoying building cars I sometimes forget to save some "man-time" to race them!?
