9781934709351: How to Hook & Launch: Traction Mods for Street & Strip (S-A Design)

While building big horsepower has become easier, putting that power down to the pavement is still quite a challenge. Getting great "bite" involves a lot more than sticky tires and a smoky burnout. The suspension system is being put to work in a way it was never designed to operate. A better understanding of exactly what is happening to the suspension when the car launches from a standing start will assist you in maximizing your car's effectiveness on the street or at the track.

In How to Hook and Launch: Traction Mods for the Street & Strip, author Dick Miller explains the physics behind what gets a car moving from a standing start, and how to best harness the various powers at work. Getting the rear tires to really bite and gain maximum traction is divided into several small steps, and Miller walks you through each phase of the launch.

Today's enthusiasts face a wide range of potential traction improvements, from softer tires and basic bolt-ons to complete or partial chassis replacements. Most opt for something in-between, where some well-engineered components are chosen to replace the factory equipment and offer a greater capability and range of adjustment. It is this range of upgrades where Miller spends most of his time, explaining what the parts and pieces do, and how to use them to their highest potential.

From the Back Cover :

The key to successful drag racing is the car’s ability to accelerate as quickly as possible from a standing start. Transferring a maximum amount of the engine’s power to the rear tires is absolutely crucial for success. Maximizing the vehicle’s suspension design and adjustment to effectively plant the rear tires is a coordinated effort that varies depending on the basic design of the components, the horsepower level of the engine, the type of transmission, the type and size of the tire being used, and many other contributing factors.

In How to Hook and Launch, author and championship-winning drag racer Dick Miller explains, investigates, and demystifies all of the critical factors affecting the quest for traction in traditional American front-engine, rear-wheel-drive vehicles. The various types of front and rear suspension used on all makes of domestic vehicles are all explored. Miller also goes into great detail about how to maximize the drag strip launch potential in each of these, and explains how their varying designs impact the launch potential. If you’re interested in optimizing your car’s capability at the drag strip, this book is for you!

About the Author :

Author Dick Miller of Hernando, Mississippi, has been drag racing competitively for 40 years. The overwhelming majority of his experience has been with modified street cars (versus purpose-built racing cars). This wealth of experience has served to educate him on the needs facing others who choose to drag race their own street machines. He is also a manufacturer of custom-crafted suspension and traction aids for a wide range of domestic rear wheel-driven cars.
