Improve safety and braking of your car
Safety Mods "Play it safe." When one starts modifying a car, little thought is usually given to the safety of the car. Manufacturers spend millions to ensure our cars are safe for the occupants and those outside the car.

On the track your priority is fast cornering and suspension plays a large part in this. Track conditions are quite forgiving and you can make some compromises like using hard suspension and lowering the car for optimum aerodynamics and a low centre of gravity.
This works well because tracks are fairly flat and you do not have a carrier bag full of eggs in the car from your return trip to the supermarket.How to add a turbo to a non turbo car.

The valves are like the doorways into the engine and control the flow of the intake air and fuel and then after combustion they control the exit of the exhaust gases.

TorqueCars will now take a look at the many considerations taken into account when selecting valve springs.
