In our last issue, we left you with a set of basically assembled Smith Racecraft Assassin traction bars. This time around we’ll examine bar tuning.
Wayne Scraba brings us part 2 of a trilogy on the Smith Racecraft Assassin traction bar, likely the most sophisticated bolt on traction bar available today.
There have been plenty of different traction bar arrangements built and manufactured over the years. Some were good. Some were not so good.
With this segment, we’ll connect the dots right to the end.
In this segment we’ll cover the forces at work within a power plant and how they affect connecting rods.
On the outside, connecting rods look like incredibly simple components. In fact, there are so many of them available today that many appear identical. The truth is, they’re not.
Last issue, we began our look at coil springs – both conventional jobs and coil over examples. There’s a lot more to cover and we’ll complete the series with this segment.
Aside from shock absorbers, springs are one of the most important and often most misunderstood pieces on a car (race car or otherwise).
Many of the cars we love were originally built as simple machines.
In our last issue, we began our look at how you can slice and dice your ET slip by way of reducing rear end unsprung and rotational weight.
