Max covers everything you need to know about shock tuning with a focus on off-road racing, including linear vs progressive vs dual-rate springs, the effect of lighter or stiffer springs and how the springs affect your handling over the bumps.
Team Associated provides a summary of shock pistons and how they affect handling, so you can figure out if you should use flat, tapered, or thin pistons.
Everyone's favorite Aussie gearhead explains the fundamentals of weight transfer in racing and how it can be used to increase traction or change the front-to-rear relative traction while cornering. In Part 2, he covers roll center and how it contributes to cornering relative to shock springs and shock oil & pistons. A must watch for all tuners!
Ty walks us through how he builds ball diffs to get the best life from the diff and the most traction.
This is the best explainer we've seen on roll center yet - check out these great videos from Max Mört that get into the racing physics of why roll center does what it does. He focuses on off-road, but the principles work across all types of racing. Oh, and get comfy and make some popcorn - these two videos clock in at over 27 minutes.
