Hello, my friend! From my previous topics you should know how to prepare your car for track-days. Now you should know the general info about body bars and struts, performance upgrade and exhaust tuning, and finally about the ways to tune your suspension. But the mistake I did - I didn't wrote the info on general preparations that may be considered as a must if you want to go on a track. So it's time for me to excuse.
When many beginners start their first races they usually prioritize wrong. So, I'm about to explain how to prepare your city car for safety exploitation on tracks, using some materials from Race2Day site of our local race team.
The engine is one of the most important things in your "race-car", but we won't speak about performance upgrade. Because its reliability is much more important for those who make first steps. But what can lead to the deterioration of engine details? Bad-quality oil! And this is all not about oil brand, it's more important to pay attention to its viscosity.
Lower temperature - higher viscosity. And vice versa. To crate perfect conditions for cold engine start you shouldn't use too viscous oil or it will be difficult for a starter to bring to life a crankshaft. However, at high temperatures the oil with low viscosity may lose its quality to keep the engine parts well greased and create necessary pressure.
As far as you push your engine to the edge in tracks, you should understand...
