Advanced 600cc Chassis Prepare to Win Seminar 

This seminar will be held at the Hyper Racing Facility on Saturday, March 3, 2018 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. This reservation-only event will be limited to the first 70 attendees. Pre-purchased tickets are needed to attend.

Rethink Dirt
From the perspective of vehicle dynamics and the fundamental laws of physics, Mike will teach the truth behind why dirt track race cars do what they do. Learn what changes to make and when to make them along with the theory behind the facts. While this is not new information to the academic world, it is mind blowing information to the dirt track mentality.

Additional Topics Include:
  • Lateral and Longitudinal Traction: The difference between them and how to maximize the traction of each
  • Geometric and Elastic Weight Transfer: Why it matters how the weight transfers
  • Roll Couple: An understanding of which corner of the car the weight transfers to and why it makes the car loose or tight
  • Wings: Roll left, roll right, and the huge effect the wing has on the chassis
  • Roll & Pitch Centers: How wishbones, Jacob's ladders, panhard bars, and all chassis linkages affect chassis handling
  • Tires Offsets: Moving the tires in or out makes a huge change, but why?
  • Anti-Squat & Anti-Dive: What this is and is it a good or a bad thing?
  • Spring Rates: Stiffer or softer, which yields more traction?
  • Shocks: Dampening force and its affect on corner weights, which shocks to run where and why, an understanding of the full shock dampening curve and how to use it to your advantage.
  • Chassis Adjustments: What they really do
  • Questions?
