Proper Handling

A car with good handling should have stability when making turns and going around sharp corners. The rear tires should have just the right amount of grip to allow it to slide a bit during tight corners. This is crucial since a car with too much grip will make the car lose the right trajectory. Having little grip, on the other hand will make the car slide too much which will cause a loss of control and a decrease in speed during acceleration. Some of the things that are related to a car’s handling are: the car’s specifications, the style of driving, center of gravity, the total weight of the car, and the car’s chassis among others.

Driving Style

Driving aggressively but with total control is the best style possible. Putting your car near its limit as long as possible and avoiding damage the car will be a great challenge. A driver’s consistency and smoothness are major concerns when tuning your car to racing standards. Being fast and out of control is useless. Being quick and in total control will greatly improve your time.

Tools to use

Here is a list of the tools that you will need when tuning the car: screwdrivers, long nose pliers, normal pliers, vise-grips, electrical tape, scissors, wrenches, and some specialized tools. If you have no time to do it yourself or if you have no idea how to do it, then it is better to have the tune-up done by an expert mechanic since he will have access to all of the tools needed.
