Car Maintenance: Plan your Next Pit Stop!

While making their rounds around the track, even professional drivers need to take some time to pull off the speedway for a quick pit stop. Before your next big race, follow their example and head directly to the Mechanic’s shop to make sure that your custom cool racing machine has all that it needs to make you the first driver across that checkered finish line.

In real world racing, pits stops are quick stops that drivers make during a race to meet with their crew to make any necessary adjustments to their car from the wear and tear of the track. Pit crews are trained to move at unrivaled speeds for refueling purposes, new tires, repairs, or any type of mechanical adjustments that a car and driver might need. The speed of a pit crew isn’t taken lightly eight. Often, crews do practice drills to maximize efficiency and cut down on the time needed to complete their tasks.

Stop by the Mechanic’s shop, today and let us know about the latest modifications that you’ve added to your road ruling, racing machine!

Wrench’s Facts: Exterior Components

Have you ever wondered what the exterior components available in the mechanic shop actually are or what it is tat they do for your car? This week, Wrench’s facts give racers like you some insight about how these components can increase your chances to be the first across the finish line!

Exterior Components

Chassis
This refers to the internal frameworks, which is often referred to as the “skeleton” of the vehicle. The other components, including the engine, transmission, suspension, and the body of the car are attached to this framework. It is a foundational structure that is essential to a vehicle.

Skins/Paint Job
This feature is more about the style and physical aesthetic appeal of the car, rather than improving its functionality. A paint job allows the driver to customize their style, making it unique.

Wheels
It is a device that enables the swift movement of the entire vehicle. If you read the post about Off-Road tires from last week, you will understand why different wheels can help tame difficult situations you will face in the game. It directly affects the traction your car has with the ground surface, which ultimately changes how you handle your car.

Wrench’s Facts- Perfecting the Turn

Do tracks with lots of curves and turns scare you? Do you often find yourself falling behind on those tight corners? Most racers don’t realize that making the perfect turn isn’t all about handling- in fact, all aspects of the car contribute to its ability to round a corner.

When approaching a corner, be sure to take an exterior approach. This means that if you are turning left, you should be on the far right side of the track. Taking an exterior approach will help to decrease the angle of the turn, allowing you to maintain a higher speed.

Turning

Surprisingly, when rounding a corner, you should apply your brakes as late as possible but before you actually start to turn. By driving straight and slowing down rapidly, your car will slow down faster. However be sure not to brake too much!

As you enter the curve, accelerate enough to maintain a constant speed throughout the turn. This is where your car’s suspension and handling will make an impact. A car’s handling directly impacts the speed at which it can make a turn. Similarly, a car’s suspension will help to keep all of the tires on the ground, although too much suspension can make it difficult to control. Once you are ready to start exiting the turn, be sure to progressively increase your acceleration while decreasing your turning.

In conclusion, just as mentioned before, it’s not only your cars handling but also its speed, acceleration, and off-road attributes that contribute to the perfect turn. Be sure to head over to the mechanics shop and use your new knowledge to tune your car for the next big race! -Wrench
