Default FAQ: Every Suspension Setup Is A Compromise.

Quote:Originally Posted by SmokinS13SR20
The car is a Crx. I've always wondered this question though. I would like to ultimately set the suspension up for a mix between straight line acceleration and cornerning ability. .................................................. .........................................want
to have mine dialed in perfectly.



Everything is a compromise.........
My experience with setting up suspensions is that if you want it to be perfect for more than one thing, you will have to be willing to make adjustments each time you change to the "other" thing. Once I get a car set up right for a certain track, I put those settings in my log book so they become repeatable for when I go to that track again.

Cornering ability depends generally on the radius of the turns and the surface..................and that will vary from track to track.
----------------------------------
For the street, I set things up for the conditions of radius and surface
that I am most likely to encounter in the places I drive, combined with my own driving style, driving stlye varies between people.

I've seen too many times where someone paid too much and ended up with a car that was not fun to drive........their car is getting beat up from expensive springs that are too short, they think it's cool to ride on hard springs that cause them to lose grip in the turns, and they probably won't know what good handling is, since they never saw it.

For those of you who have ridden with me, you have seen what I can do with inexpensive stock components and my knowledge of how suspensions work, combined with careful measuring.-Bob
