How To Prepare Your Car For Track Days

If you’ve always wanted to be a race car driver, you may be much closer to your dream than you think. Many racing enthusiasts choose to take their vehicles to the track to test out the vehicle’s performance and to try and win. Track racing is a great hobby, but it can be a pricy one, especially if you wreck your vehicle or you are using your daily driver as your track car (which is strongly not encouraged) If you are looking for information about how you can prepare your car for the track, then you have come to the right place at Pfaff Tuning. At our tuning facility in Woodbridge, ON, our clients can find high-end track preparation services for their vehicles. Read on to learn more about how to prepare your car for track days.

Be sure to prepare your tires 

If you want to be sure you’ll be able to maneuver through curves like a professional, you will need your tires to be at their best. This means no holes, dents, or any other type of damage, and definitely don’t use flat tires that have been patched up. If your wear bars are showing, you’ll need some new tires before taking your car to the track. Additionally, make sure the tires have the right air pressure.

Make sure you prepare your brakes 

Your brakes are going to be extremely important as you make your way around the track. To be sure you can stop in a safe and timely manner, keep your brakes at their best. Check the brake lines for leaks and cracks that can present a problem. If necessary, fill up on brake fluid. Finally, be sure you still have plenty left on your brake pads since these can wear down faster during races.

Remove excess weight in your vehicle 

As you give your car its final inspections before heading out to your race, take the time to also remove excess weight. Things like child seats and sports equipment you have stored in your trunk should all be removed in order to reduce the weight your car has to carry. Remove any loose items from your car’s cabin to prevent being distracted by flying objects when you should be concentrating on the road. Remember that flying objects can also hit you or get in your way during a race.

There are many things that you can do to make sure your car is prepared for the track. If you are looking for more information about how you can have your car professionally prepared for track days, then we encourage you to get in touch with a representative at Pfaff Tuning.
