VPRACE Services - Chassis Setup

By: Vprace  09-12-2011

Most experienced drivers would agree that there is more horse power hidden in the chassis than in the engine. We employ precise, repeatable methods in our chassis set-up work. Our equipment includes a full chassis set up platform, computer linked corner weight scales, dynamic spring rate measurement equipment and laser aided alignment systems, all in house. Regular corner weight checks and wheel alignments, coupled with seasonal shock absorber testing and spring rate tracking, ensure consistent performance, event after event.

We can also draw upon our experience to tailor the handling characteristics of your car to match your driving style. For example, we can maximize the stability and predictability of a car that is new to you, softening the response curve and dialing in a little forgiveness as you familiarize yourself with the car. As your comfort level grows, we can then increase ultimate grip and transient response so that you and the car develop together into a safe, competitive combination.

We want the total experience, both on and off the track, to be as enjoyable and as comfortable as possible.


VPRACE Services - Engine & Transaxle

Once the engine performance baseline is established, the engines are tracked throughout their service life by the use of cylinder leakdown testing, digital borescope photography, oil analysis, life cycle tracking and traditional inspection procedures. We specialize in incorporating modern materials and engineering advances into these engines to lengthen the time between overhauls and improve overall reliability.
