Apex Alignment Civic racing with FARA Homestead Miami Heavy Rain.
Danny Menendez driving the Apex Alignment #17 Civic in a severe rain race at Homestead on 4/21/12. Poor visibility and limited traction led to a small "love tap" with the wall towards the end of the race. Both driver and car are ok and have resumed racing since. The weather was very bad and got worse as the race progressed. Notice the fog on the winshield and the water in the passenger footwell get worse!

Wheel alignment for track/road racing
The system from Hunters engineering is as about as precise as it gets for
getting the best out of your handling. While the machine can be used to
check out the bump-steer on standard cars, it really comes into play for
cars running coilover suspension.
DIY wheel alignment
How to do your own wheel alignment on the front of your car. This is for a
front wheel alignment and if your vehicle tracks corner ways, and it
probably won't, then you can take it in for a four wheel alignment. Drive
through a wet puddle to get the four tires wet. If they follow the front
marks your fine.

found in a much older competitor. Currently he is driving for the Joe Heck
Racing Team, Hydraulic Jeans, Race Pac, Metro Wrapz and Breathless
Performance Products and looking forward to additional opportunities and
challenges in racing. He has aspirations to race in Grand-Am and World

FRONT END GEOMETRY
Fully adjustable front ends were introduced several years ago and continue
to be offered on all new Phantom chassis today. These adjustments include
caster, camber, ackerman, and lead. However, understanding these
adjustments and the affects they will have on your chassis is crucial prior
to making any changes on your chassis. Watch as Harrill Wiggins explains
the correct way to adjust your front end geometry.
Kart racing is a dangerous activity and should only be performed by trained
and licensed professionals. It is the users sole responsibility to
determine the overall safety of the products they use. Obtaining higher
speeds and performance from your chassis increases the risk of injury.
