Adjusting The Chassis With Tilt
SpeedMart Tech Team

Affects of taking tilt out of chassis:


  1. Moves center of weight mass to the right. So more weight transfers to right side of car. Affects the car through first half of cornering.
  2. Raising left side of car up creates positive arm angle at left front. This makes the car tighter at corner entry by holding weight at the left front and right rear corners.
  3. Raising the left side of the car up raises the height of the left side radius rod mounting point on the chassis at the left rear. Under acceleration this creates more thrust loading on the left rear tire.
  4. Increases the positive arm angle on the left rear and adds bar preload, so at corner exit the bar unloads harder on the left rear.

Affects of adding tilt to the chassis:


  1. Moves weight mass to the left, which loosens up chassis at corner entry.
  2. Increases torsion arm angle at left front so car turns in easier.
  3. Lowers the height of the radius rod mounting point on the chassis at the left rear.
  4. Takes out positive arm angle at the left rear so car won’t drive as hard at corner exit.
