Default EVENT ANNOUNCEMENT: Suspension Theory Q&A, and corner weight scaling session - FREE

ANNOUNCEMENT: 281 Motorsports now offers complete digital corner scaling, chassis setup and in-house alignments.
Ever wanted to find out what your weight balance / transfer is? If you have a good suspension and haven’t had your Mustang scaled and adjusted for proper weight balance and had the chassis set up for Roll Center / Instant Center / Thrust Angle / SAI / Bump Steer / Pinion Angle / Wheel Base - Front Track Width, you’re really missing out. A simple weight adjustment on a coil-over system makes a HUGE difference in the handling characteristics in your Mustang. Don’t spend thousands on the suspension on your car and not set it up completely! For pricing, please contact our Performance Specialist at (714) 871-3391.

To show off our new PRO Longacre equipment, on February 2nd, we are going to have a group Q&A session on the topic of Suspension Theory from 11am-2pm. This event is Free and lunch will be served. During the session will offer a **FREE** corner weight check to the first 10 people who sign up. To check your corner weights, the service is normally $79.99, so take advantage and sign up now! This offer is open to all of our customers, but SOEC members are getting first dibs on appointment times.


Event Participants: (you must call in to reserve your time)


Here is a really cool excerpt from “Hot Rod Magazine”

The Science of Your Car
Understanding and Correcting Corner Weights Is Critical for Optimizing Handling
Springs, shocks, antisway bars, wheels, tires: That's what usually comes to mind when we think "handling." Choose the right balance of these components, and the car oughta corner like it's on rails, right? Not necessarily. Just as the hottest engine parts package may fail miserably if you don't know how to tune the combination, even the best handling package may deliver less than expected performance if you overlook the basics.
We all know that even very small changes in an engine's state of tune can dramatically affect power output. Similarly, very slight changes in your vehicle's suspension can result in measurable changes in its handling characteristics, and many of us have even played with different wheel alignment settings and tire pressures. But according to recognized suspension experts like Dick Guldstrand (Guldstrand Motorsports) and Jeff Cheechov (Progress Technology), one of the most overlooked contributors to proper suspension performance is the vehicle's weight distribution
Huh? Why is weight distribution so important? All too often, a car doesn't respond the same way through mirror-image left and righthand turns. For example, a car may be quick through righthand turns, but in a lefthander you have to turn the steering wheel an additional amount to stay on the proper line through the corner. This is known as "push" or "understeer." So maybe you play with tire pressure and alignment settings, perhaps even mess with the antisway bars, springs, and shocks. After much blood, toil, tears, and sweat, the car is now neutral in left turns ... but--d'oh!--it requires a decrease in the amount the steering wheel is turned as you go through a righthand turn (a condition known as "oversteer," which is really dicey unless you're an experienced competition driver).
The probable cause for this mystifying situation is improper vehicle static corner weights. Three fundamental aspects of vehicle corner weight are important for setting up a car: the rear weight distribution, the left weight distribution, and the crossweight percentage. The values are determined by the amount of weight resting on each tire contact patch--left-front (LF), right-front (RF), left-rear (LR), and right-rear (RR)--with the car on a level surface. The driver (or a weight simulating the driver) should be in the car, with all the fluids topped off. Of course, fuel quantity doesn't remain constant. Most tuners set up the car with a half-tank of gas.

Hey Guys,

We completely forgot that Super Bowl Sunday is the next day and I need to get the house ready for the big party! We are going to postpone until the following saturday 2/9/13. If you would like to get your car scaled for FREE, give us a call and schedule your time slot. We cannot take "walk-ins" on this.
