If you’re having trouble deciding what type of mods you should make in order to speed up your ride, this video will point you in the right direction.
There’s more to fast lap times than just power and torque. Sure, being able to accelerate quickly out of a corner and achieving really high speeds on long straights is great, but on small twisty tracks or canyon runs, other factors can also be in play.
With that in mind, the Engineering Explained YouTube channel put together this chart demonstrating just how you should modify your car in order for it to excel on a small, tight circuit.
We suspect the reason why they went with such a basic and small track layout was so that they could further strengthen their point, though their findings do seem legit.
For example, having on a set of sticky tires can actually help you more than “double” the power and the torque – if the track is designed in such a way in which momentum can actually cancel out the effect of a higher top speed and better acceleration.
Either way, let us know if you agree with the results or if you feel they’re a little too “binary” for real world applications.
