Motorsport Wheel Alignment Fundamentals

Motorsport Wheel Alignment Fundamentals

$129 USD

Want to go faster? You’re going to have to optimize your setup & alignment.

The first place to start for improving ANY racecar is focusing on suspension setup and the alignment settings. With the right alignment, you can shave seconds off your lap time or rally stage, and get ahead of the competition.

Take your racing back into your own hands

Most enthusiasts rely on a wheel alignment specialist at the local tire shop. Now, this might work great when it comes to stock road cars. But when it comes to optimizing the contact patch under hard cornering and braking — a road car setup just won’t cut it. 

To further that, you can’t take the tire shop to the racetrack. If you have an alignment setup for a dry track, and the weather changes, you’re most likely left at the back of the pack — chasing results with a sub-par setup.

Enter: Motorsport Wheel Alignment fundamentals

This course will teach you everything you need to know about Motorsport Wheel alignment. You will learn a seven-step process that shows you how to align ANY car, teaching you the techniques used right up to LMP2, LMP1 and F1. 

Make changes for your car, based on real feedback

Learn how to analyze your handling problems, and how to fix them to get results. The seven-step process will teach you how to align your car based on the handling feedback you’re feeling out there on the racetrack. It will teach you a process you can apply to any car or motorsport.

But don’t alignment machines cost $10,000+?

If this all sounds a bit expensive, don’t worry. You’re probably used to seeing laser alignment machines on a four-post hoist — This is not what we use in the course. You will learn how to create your own string wheel alignment setup for under 400USD in tools and materials—keeping it cost-effective and portable.
