I want to try a reverse spring set up on a hobby stock car that am helping a friends with its a 3400 lbs metric car all stock. The car is loose mid to exit with not foward drive. I was thinking this setup might help because their are not alot of different way to adjust these cars other then stagger, offset, and maybe shocks. The car front.
TUNING THE CAR WITH SPRINGS REMEMBER: STIFF SPRING GETS THE WEIGHT Rear to front weight transfer (deceleration) POINTS TO REMEMBER: (1.) Stiffening the LF and/or softening the RF spring decreases dynamic wedge during deceleration. (2.) Softening the LF and/or stiffening the RF spring increases dynamic wedge during deceleration For 2021 IMCA is now allowing adjustable rear shock mounts in the stock car division. This kit is designed to retrofit stock car chassis with an adjustable rear shock mount configuration. This will allow you to adjust rear suspension heights and still have legal shock length without the need to buy expensive shaft extensions. $75.95.

Excessive front toe in will make a car turn into a corner quicker, & may create a loose condition. Less fuel equals faster speeds. The less fuel in the tank the tighter the chassis will become. Splash = 2-3 gallons, 1/2 can = 5-6 gallons, 1 can = 11-12 gallons, 1 1/2 cans = 17-18 gallons, 2 cans = full tank I ran a street stock/sportsman from 1995 to 2000 with a metric frame. We had LF 1000, RF1300, LR 200, RR200.

Front AND rear suspension install with TONS of laughs What really makes the setup work is precise shackle angles, the angle that you mount the shocks, and keeping that right rear free-moving.

One spring taking a very small set can alter corner weights enough to turn a perfectly balanced race car into an undriveable pig. The situation in stock cars (and in road racing) is less critical but only slightly so. Chasing this sort of thing wastes time, effort, tires, and engines and can drive sane crews mad.

Many aspects of dirt track technology are covered here, including modified multileaf setups, dirt track car setups, circle track chassis and more.

Not Currently Available Modified stock car racing, also known as modified racing and modified, is a type of auto racing that involves purpose-built cars simultaneously racing against each other on oval tracks.First established in the United States after World War II, this type of racing was early-on characterized by its participants' modification of passenger cars in pursuit of higher speeds, hence the name Consider softening up your front springs ( I know I always say that, but guys I know around here are running around 850/900 for front springs with over 200 pounds of bite. This is for an imca stock car class on Hoosier G60 tires
The longer lever arm created by the adjustment scenario in the prior paragraph compresses the RF spring more than it would have in our baseline set up. The car speed and banking provide the same amount of force, but the longer lever creates more travel at the RF. Really - it is like running a softer RF spring when the chassis rolls These springs are available with several different rates, the most common being 153 pounds or 176 pounds. They measure 53.5-inches eye-to-eye and have a true arch of 6-3/8-inches (this is very close to the stock arch). The eyes are standard GM sizes—2.0-inches in the front and 1.5-inches in the rear. AFCO Racing claims their leaf spring is.
His current IMCA Modified that he owns and built himself - now piloted by Bryce Borgen of Perley - is a perfect example. While modified cars are now 4-Bar suspension designs, Sagen built cars (that are raced now) in 2011 and 2013 that utilize a leaf-spring suspension While it is possible to balance just about any weight/spring combination, it is far better to set up around known physics principles. A FWD oval track race car, like most other oval track or road racing cars, should be as near 50%-50% front-to-rear weight distribution as possible
Leaf Spring Technical Information. Leaf springs are the oldest form of suspension in racing. Although they are the oldest, they seem to be the least understood. Leaf springs possess many desirable suspension features, such as dampening, forward bite, roll over steer, high anti-squat percentage, and high lateral stiffness As a general rule, most asphalt stock cars run around 3.5 to 4.0 front roll center height, although many run lower roll centers than they would like simply because the stock location is very low and they're not allowed to change it. And if you can tell me what the rear roll center height is on a stock metric four link I'd appreciate it
The shocks absorb the energy of the spring, keeping the tires on the ground as much as possible. Stock car racing teams spend much of their time configuring and fine-tuning shock-spring combinations for each track to ensure their driver has the best possible control over his or her car [source: Burt]. Advertisement The exception to this being modified stock cars which the drivers head and body is contained in the car similar to that of a conventional passenger car. In modern open wheel racecars the engine is typically located directly behind the driver such as in Indy Car and Formula One racing however modifieds and sprint cars retain the standard set up. Now paved track cars do not use a lot of this for to do so would quickly burn off the rear tires. The typical set up on a 3 link rear end set up is to have both bottom links ( trailing arms) equal length and running up hill by 5 degrees.

The bearing upper A-frames allow for more range of motion and the slot and key system makes shifting from left to right a breeze Shorter wheelbase cars can turn much easier. This is why if you look in the street stock pits at your local bullring, most of the cars are shorter wheelbase models, like vintage Camaros. The late '70s model Camaro was (and still is) an extremely popular racing car simply because its wheelbase is the shortest allowed by many local rules IMCA Dirt; IMCA Pavement; Complete chassis setup.
