With the explosion in popularity of Pro Touring cars, and more importantly, using Pro Touring cars, learning how to properly set up a suspension is super important. Years ago, a car with big wheels was a “Pro Touring” ride, now that is not the case. Companies like Detroit Speed make components that will shift your organs with cornering force, but some knowledge in how they are designed and the basic principles behind their performance goes a long way.
We have two videos from Detroit Speed. The first covers camber and caster along with some of the innovative performance products that Detroit Speed has created and manufactures to optimize both of these critical settings. The second video talks about wheel backspacing. It illustrates how to measure it and explains the importance of properly fitted wheels.
It is high time to learn what makes your suspension and wheel package tick. As more and more car transition from “faux touring” to “pro touring” companies like Detroit Speed will provide the high quality parts and expertise to make classic iron burn corners!
