In our last issue, we began our look at mounting tires and balancing the wheel and tire combination. Now we’ll dig deeper into the balancing part of the equation with this segment.
Have you ever really considered what it takes to mount and balance wheels?
This time around, we’ll wrap it up with an investigation into balancing.
We’ll finish our look at journals and then examine polishing, chamfering and cross drilling.
This issue, we’ll examine billet crankshafts along with tech on journals and counterweights for all crankshafts (billet and otherwise).
Crankshafts are critical. But the reality is, there is so much to know about crankshafts and so much choice out there (and so many different potential engine combinations), it’s often difficult to figure out where to start.
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.
It should be no secret to anyone who has ever climbed into a racecar that there’s more than one way to go fast.
Poll any drag race chassis shop and they’ll quickly tell you a car should be built around the wheels and tires (particularly the back ones).
