THE KNOWLEDGE

Race Car Preparation

Understanding Racing Car Preparation

Driving a racecar on the rough roads puts enormous strain on various parts of the machine, meaning that some simple maintenance tasks are essential. Undertaking the basic maintenance practices can extend the life of your vehicle and enable it to handle the rough roads more comfortably.

Basic Maintenance

When it comes to race car preparation, replacing the brake fluid is vital since the liquid absorbs water from the atmosphere. The water can boil and reduce the efficiency of the brakes when it heats up. Topping up the water and oil levels is also important since the vehicle leans on the corners. Half tanks can cause one side to dry up, which results in some problems. Replacing worn out brake pads is imperative. In addition, you should have some spare brake pads since they can wear out during the race. The tyres should have deep treads to improve traction. Be sure to have the appropriate tyres to match the weather conditions as well as the nature of the roads. You will need to switch tyres when you come from gravel to muddy areas. A mechanic will check whether the rims are fastened tightly. Loosely fastened rims cannot handle the pressure and loading, especially when taking corners.

Racing Fuel

Most drivers prefer the high-octane fuels that give them an edge against their competitors. High-octane fuels will serve you well back by improving the overall performance of your car. You do not have to fill up the tank as it will add unnecessary weight that might slow you down. However, you need to make the necessary plans when it comes to refuelling during the race.

Racing Tyre Pressure

Checking the tyre pressure during race car preparation is vital if you want to avoid problems during the race. While most drivers have a lot of discretion when it comes to tyre pressure, the best thing is to comply with the manufacturer’s guidelines. Consulting an experienced mechanic is vital as you will get vital information on the pressure that will give you maximum grip in various driving conditions. Remember that the tyres will heat up during the race, so you do not have to inflate them in a way that might bring the risk of bursting while on the track. Be sure to select tyres that can handle extreme temperatures when you start racing at full speeds.

Reduce the Overall Weight

Maintaining the optimum weight of the car can be the difference between winning and losing the race. The best way to reduce weight is to remove clutter. Start by keeping away the jack, luggage, spare tyres, children seats and any other thing that might increase the weight of the vehicle. Removing these items will reduce the possibility of having items flying around when you start racing.

Improve the Vehicle’s Cooling Potential

When racing, you will need the car to cool effectively so as to get optimal engine performance. As such, the radiator is the first aspect to inspect. If you have a turbo-charged engine, your car will have several radiators and intercoolers. The radiators and intercoolers will require a sufficient supply of air. If your car has some items that might obstruct the flow of air, you need to remove them. For example, the number plates might limit the flow of air, meaning that you need to remove them.

Warming up the Car

Warming up the car before you start driving helps to thin out the oil and expand some parts of your engine. This tactic helps to improve the efficiency and put less strain on various parts of the engine. If you have already topped up the water and oil, your car will not have any problems when it starts to warm up. Checking the radiators beforehand will also ensure that the engine does not overheat.

Racecar Driving Position

Adjusting the driver’s seat is another thing that most people tend to overlook. Your driving position must ensure optimum ergonomics and anthropometrics, which means that you need to be seated comfortably, improve visibility and reduce fatigue. Loose seats need to be fastened before you get ready for the track. The adjustments should ensure that you sit upright and rest the wrists on the top of the steering wheel comfortably. You should also be able to adjust the seat to ensure that you are as comfortable as possible during the race. The process of race car preparation starts by developing a checklist of all the things that you need to do to ensure that your vehicle is ready to go. This process starts by giving the engine an exhaustive check, as well as repairing the brakes. Besides checking every system in the car, it is vital to examine parts that support these systems to avoid frustration during the race. Having a competent mechanic that specialises on racing cars will give you a competitive edge.
