CLUTCH ENVIRONMENT

Is it possible to “on the fingers” explain how to drive, using the full 100% potential of tire adhesion to the road surface? Can!

To do this, we represent the forces acting on the car in turn with the help of the so-called “traction circle”, that is, the graphic circle of the clutch. To do this, draw a cross and circle it equally distant from the center. In fact, this is a graph of accelerations G in each phase of the turn: braking, moving along an arc and accelerating. Suppose that in all three phases of the tire has the same coefficient of friction, allowing you to develop lateral acceleration in 1.1G. If you exceed it, the tire will begin to slide, and this, as you know, slows down the car. In our graph, these are the points of intersection of the straight lines of the cross and the circle. The upper part of the vertical line is braking, the lower is acceleration. Continue reading

LITTLE DRIVING

We turn to the European experience and carefully look at the movements of the wheel at the local aces at the entrance to the turn. We will see that there is no smoothness at all, but on the contrary, there are sharp, almost convulsive twitches here and there. So how is it right? After all, one of the most important racing tenets says: the smoother the manipulation of the driver’s steering, the higher the speed in the turn? Paradox! We’ll figure out. Continue reading

YOURSELF TRAINER

“If the car is set up correctly, then any pilot can quickly drive on it. Imagine what it means to win a second at the expense of settings. It is very, very much unrealistic! It is about five-tenths of a second at best, and this despite the fact that the basic “set up” was incorrect. In Formula 3000, if we managed to adjust and lose two dozen – we were happy. All teams have basic settings for all tracks. The more tests, the more accurately you can configure the machine. We are already talking about fine tuning. Continue reading
