The roll centre is a virtual point at which the chassis interacts with the centre of gravity to create weight transfer and roll. Here we explore solutions for maximising grip as well as common pitfalls when fitting coilovers or lowering your Macpherson strut car.
Are uprated and adjustable anti-roll bar drop links necessary? Here we discuss why they could be the next essential bit you need for your anti-rol...
A must for VAG Group chassis, Whiteline roll centre and bump steer correction kits are designed to correct roll-centre geometry using specially engineered ball-joints and tie rod ends. Raising the front roll-centre results in a substantial increase to front roll resistance and a significant reduction in suspension compression of the outside front wheel during cornering. The result is more even weight distribution and improved tyre contact ultimately improving front end grip and cornering speeds.
Attention S550 Mustang drivers!! Whiteline is proud to introduce another way to ‘Activate More Grip’ with adjustable, heavy-duty Rear Toe Arms (KTA228). These new, easy-to-install control arms feature Whiteline’s uniquely engineered synthetic elastomer bushings. These allow adjustment of the rear toe to optimise geometry of your cars’ rear end especially after lowering.
The ALK effectively modifies the position of the side view instant centre on the front suspension. The side view instant centre is the pivot point for the side view swing arm (also the pivot point for the suspension at that instant), which is a line drawn from the tire contact patch to the side view instant centre (under braking – for acceleration it is drawn from the wheel centre). The slope or angle of this swing arm (effectively the position of the instant centre) describes the amount of anti-dive and anti-lift present in the front suspension.
