Brake Bias

Once the race car is well balanced and the shocks are doing their job, it is critical to evaluate brake bias for proper turn entry.

Proper brake bias won’t fix an ill handing race car but is essential to maintaining a neutral handling car when the brakes are in use.

The influence of your brake bias can be determined by entering the corner with light braking and entering the corner with heavy brake use to see if there is a difference. If there is, try to adjust the brake bias to eliminate the adverse handling.

It is helpful to install a set of Brake Balance Gauges so that you have real numbers to determine front to rear bias.

If your braking system has a balance bar, the use of a Brake Balance Adjuster allows you to make significant changes in a limited number of minutes or laps.

Practice time is critical and expensive. Make the best use of the time provided!
