bump gong into turn 2
Jun 3rd, 2021 at 1:17pm
 
I did a track day last week with my Racecar and WOW .  Its probably because I have not raced at Mission for a while or driven it with an aggressive suspension but man O man is that bump coming into 2 gotten worse or is it just me???
I swear my car bounces into the air  , LOL Grin

Are there any plan to address the multiple bumps around the track ? or are we waiting on cash flow.

No, you just need a softer suspension. All will be well. Smiley

1500lb springs and .5" suspension travel tends to ride a little rough. I have the same problem with the fork lift, it's hell on the spine  Roll Eyes !!

SOOOOO , I will go out on a limb here and say NO track bump paving is on the near agenda.

PS, Keith , my front springs are only 900lbs , not 1500lbs

Only 900lbs; well that must give you at least .75" of suspension travel  Roll Eyes
