TIPS

Synthetic vs. Regular Engine Oil: Decisions, Decisions

If you have ever had a conversation with anyone about engine oil, then you have undoubtedly come to the realization that almost every person out there has their own opinion regarding what represents the best option for both their own and your own automobile. Mechanics, performance enthusiasts, friends at work and even your own family are likely to hold varied points of view on the subject of engine lubricants and what you should be putting in your car when it’s time for your scheduled oil change.

Alignment Tips

Proper suspension alignment is critical to the handling of any car. Without knowing what you drive, we can’t give you specific advice on alignment. Every car is somewhat different in both what it requires and what can be adjusted on it. Every car does have the same alignment metrics, however… whether they can be easily adjusted on that car or not. There are also common typical settings for these metrics for performance driving. These basic concepts will be discussed below.

What is Camber?

This is the one you’ve probably heard the most about. That’s because it has a lot to do with good cornering. Camber is the angle that the top of the tire leans away from the center of the car. For our purposes, what we really want is for the top of the tire to lean toward the center of the car. This is called negative camber. Negative camber is good! If camber is negative when the car is pointed forward and at rest (static camber), it will be closer to zero on the outside wheel in a corner. In plain English that means that the contact patch of the tires that most of the car’s weight is on when you are turning will be almost perfectly flat on the pavement. See, I told you it was good!

What is Toe?

You may have heard of this one, too. Toe is the angle that the front of the tire is pointed inward from straightforward. It’s great fun to play with. You might think that zero toe (having the wheels pointed straight forward) would be the way to go to keep the car going straight. Well, not quite. For straight-line stability, a little bit of toe-in is the answer. For quicker steering response, toe-out does the trick. When we get into specifics, you’ll learn that a good alignment may use a little of each.

What is Caster?

Not quite as popular to discuss, but still very important. Caster is the angle that the center of the steering axis is tilted forward. Think of the front wheels on a typical shopping cart. The “steering axis” on those wheels is tilted to the rear (negative caster), making it almost effortless to steer a shopping cart, and giving it no inherent desire to roll in a straight line. The opposite example would be a “chopper” style motorcycle with long forks going to the front wheel. The steering axis is tilted WAY back on this bike (positive caster) and it will have the tendency to go straight at the expense of making it a bit harder to turn. The basic effects are exactly the same on your car, but there may be another side effect if your car has a double-wishbone suspension. This type of suspension will gain a little bit of negative camber when it compresses. If you have more caster, you get more of a gain in negative camber under compression. For this reason, you will often see people recommending “maximum attainable positive caster”. More about that later.
