WEBINAR: Tune Your Car's Handling
Lower Your Lap Times By Making Your Car Faster
Register now for this 3-Hour webinar.
Make your car handle better.
Join renowned race engineer Jeff Braun as he shares practical, hands-on tips and advice to help you tune your car’s handling. Hosted by Ross Bentley, Jeff will tell you how to adjust tire pressures, anti-roll bars, shocks/dampers, springs, ride height and rake, suspension geometry, and aerodynamics to help your car get around the race track faster.
Whether you’re a relative newcomer to the sport of performance driving (participating in HPDE and track day events), or you’re a club or pro racer, you’ll learn valuable information to help you lower your lap times… by making your car handle better.
Jeff and Ross have “tag-team” presented information for drivers, mechanics, and engineers many times in the past. You’ll enjoy how they work together in this webinar, while you gain the knowledge you’ve been looking for – how to tune your car’s handling so you can lower your lap times.
Here’s your chance to gather over 70 years of experience in just 3 hours, which will ultimately lead to you having a faster car to drive. Each session is a one-hour presentation, with thirty minutes for questions.
The webinar will run on October 13 & 15; 8:30-10:00pm Eastern/5:30-7:00pm Pacific.
Jeff Braun is one of the winningest, most versatile race car engineers in the world, having engineered prototype sports cars, GT cars, Indy cars, NASCAR Cup cars, junior open-wheel formula and sports racing cars, karts and quarter midgets, and even Top Fuel dragsters. He’s won races and championships with drivers ranging from NASCAR champion, Alan Kulwicki, to Indy car and sports car ace, Ryan Hunter-Reay; from junior karters to club racers; and every level in between (and especially with his son, Colin Braun). He’s just as at-home and successful at a local track day as he is at the Indy 500.
Although Jeff has engineered in drag and oval racing, sports cars and road racing are a special love of his. He’s won seven Sports Car championships in Grand Am and IMSA, seven Sebring 12-Hour wins, four Petite Le Mans wins and one Daytona 24-Hours victory. Jeff is currently Competition Director for SpeedSource Engineering and Mazda Racing in the Tudor United Sports Car Series.
There’s no doubt that Jeff’s knowledge and experience are a big part of why he’s won so much. But it’s Jeff’s ability to put into words what’s happening with a car that makes him special. He co-wrote the race engineering technical book, Inside Racing Technology, and is in huge demand to speak at seminars, and to work with young drivers to teach them how to tune their cars. He makes complex topics simple to understand, and takes the most practical and down-to-earth approach to tuning cars. Because he’s raced himself (and has recently gotten back behind the wheel again to compete in Chumpcar races), he can relate driver feel to car setup. And that’s exactly what he’ll do in this webinar – explain to you what you need to do to tune your car’s handling, in ways that you can go do on your own.
Beyond the information and advice Jeff will share with you, you’ll no doubt admire his pure passion for our sport, and the fun he has when tuning a car to make it – and you – go faster.
Drivers of all levels, from novice HPDE participants to pro racers
Crew chiefs & mechanics
Anyone interested in making their car go faster
Toe-in and toe-out
To make your car faster
To get more out of your car
To understand how tires, suspension & aerodynamics work
To learn how to identify where a handling problem lies
The Tune Your Car’s Handling webinar will cover just enough of the theory behind the engineering and tuning so you understand the “why,” but it’ll mostly be focused on providing you with specific adjustments that you can use the next time you’re at the track.
