If you’ve spent much time driving on a race track, you’re probably thinking about how to make your car perform even better. Improving its handling is perhaps the easiest – but most confusing – place to start. The advice, principles, and guidelines I provide in the How to Tune Your Car’s Handling eBook will prove to be invaluable. Based on my four decades of experience as a driver, in-depth study, and someone who has worked closely with some of the best race engineers in the world, the eBook covers:
- Tuning principles
- The Handling Debrief process
- How to tune anti-roll bars, springs, and shock absorbers/dampers
- How to determine the ideal tire pressures for your car
- Managing tire temperatures
- Suspension tuning with camber, toe, and ride heights
- How to improve your ability to sense what your car is doing
- Common driving errors that lead to handling problems
- Additional resources
Tuning your car to suit your driving style, and improve its performance is a fun and rewarding challenge…when armed with the knowledge to do so!
Love the eBooks! Simple, to-the-point, and no fluff – just what I need. The eBook on shocks helped me understand a complicated subject, and the mental imagery guide was what I was lacking (I’m now much better at visualizing since I have a process). While I like your full Speed Secrets book, these eBooks are perfect for me. Thanks!
