SUSPENSION

Post by oldmuscle69 » Tue Jun 27, 2017 9:21 pm

Why do we need to keep running over the part of the Bristol lot that JUST beats the loving crap out of a suspension setting? I do not get it as to why. Pretty sure I am not the only one. Ten feet one or the other side and could be cool. This is BS twice to have the same bottom crushing bumps. Any in put from the ? Any one want to help pay for the new alignment so I can be at the next event? Just asking! Now I gotta pay for the third alignment this year. I ran two seasons with the same alignment before.

I wish I was only on my third alignment.

I purchased a lifetime alignment service from firestone in Alcoa for this reason

There were two spots on this weekend's course where the bumps were noticeable for me in the kart, but neither was bad at all. I'd be perfectly happy running over those parts in the future if it means not being a bobblehead somewhere else (like at the very far end of the drag strip side where I literally couldn't see straight for 50-75').

Learning to do your own alignments isn't that bad, especially if you start marking cam bolt positions with a dent that can't wash off. I didn't get any big bumps at the bristol site, but my miata has tire bottoming out in a couple places at smokies stadium.
