04.28.15: In-Garage Hour! Live @ Yawsport w/ Track & Street Car Tuning & Setup, Plus Massive Suspension Knowledge, Bilstein's PSS-9, Corner Weighting, Techniques for Balance, Hillclimbing & High-Speed Solo 2-Style Competition @ The Lone Pine Trials
So much tech! This live in-garage episode of the Garage Hour is dense with answers to your suspension-setup questions, including coilvers versus struts versus shocks, springs and perches, adjustable valve and suspension tuning, compression versus rebound, vehicle setup, diagonal weighting, the state of the high-performance shock business, weight jacking and weight relocation, plus the investment of time and energy necessary to be a professional gearhead in regulation-heavy Kalifornistan.
Hostus Maximus Justin Fort and his canyon-carving Subaru STi join road and race suspension tuner (and driver of note) Bret Norgarrd (or is it Bert Nogood? Terb Draagron?) at his San Diego/Ramona-based Yawsport Tuning shop for some corner weighting and a Garage Hour-style chat about what it takes to make a good suspension better, in this case the new Bilstein PSS-9 boingers on the in-house STi.
Justin and Bret also chat about Bret's upcoming races (including the big Lone Pine Time Trials) and his campaign plans for the large-by-wide Yawsport SMF Acura TL.
