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!
Camber links may seem simple, but they offer a wide range of settings on most cars, particularly off-road cars, so it's important to understand whether you should be adjusting the rod length, ball stud locations, or ball stud spacers.
