1. Softening the right front spring helps the racecar to turn when on the gas because the softer
spring causes extra chassis roll that increases the load and traction of the right front tire.

a.) True   b.) False   c.) Not Sure

 

2. A tall coil spring helps to keep the chassis from lifting off the spring during weight transfer
because a tall spring stores more energy than a short spring.

a.) True   b.) False   c.) Not Sure

 

3. The most important factor in the geometry of a front suspension is the location of the
suspension’s roll center.

a.) True   b.) False   c.) Not Sure 

 

4. It makes no difference to handling as to how a non-coil over front spring is installed into a lower
control arm as long as the spring is centered in its seat.

a.) True   b.) False   c.) Not Sure

 

5. Loose handling off the corner is usually due to improper chassis setup when the throttle is
applied.

a.) True   b.) False   c.) Not Sure       

 

6. Don’t ever increase stagger or right rear tire trail when racing on a slick track.

a.) True   b.) False   c.) Not Sure

 

7. A stiffer shock helps to load and unload a tire quicker than a softer shock.

a.) True   b.) False   c.) Not Sure

 

8. Place ballast wherever convenient as long as the desired weight percentages are attained.

a.) True   b.) False   c.) Not Sure

  

9. The location of a shock or spring is not nearly as important as its rate.

a.) True   b.) False   c.) Not Sure 

 

10.  All suspension components should be mounted using stiff or solid type bushings.

a.) True   b.) False   c.) Not Sure

 

11. The RF tire gains negative camber when the chassis rolls.

a.) True   b.) False   c.) Not Sure

 

12. Most dirt track front suspensions need from 3 to 4 degrees negative camber in the right front tire and 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 degrees positive camber in the left front tire.

a.) True   b.) False   c.) Not Sure
