Can better brakes reduce lap times significantly? How do you choose the right nuts and bolts? Which is more important, cornering or straightline speed? Why did it break again? Engineer to Win not only answers these and many other questions, it gives you the reasons why.It's no secret that lost races and crashes are caused by what is usually referred to as mechanical failure. Poor designs, incorrect manufacture and assembly, unreasonable demands, and negligent maintenance all lead to the dreaded mechanical failure. Practicing the advice in Engineer to Win will spare you from many of racing's common faults and hazards.Included in this book are tips on selecting the right meal or metal alloy grade for racing components and choosing the ideal final treatments to give parts the desired strength, hardness, and longevity. Bolts and other fasteners are also investigated along with the best methods of joining metal. Author and world-renowned racing guru Carroll Smith shows the way to faster lap times via aerodynamic improvements and explains the importance of limited slip differentials.With nearly 300 illustrations and photos, Engineer to Win provides greater understanding of the race car's engineering, from Formula One through NASCAR, CART, IRL, Formula Ford, SCCA, Le Mans, and even autocross. With Engineer to Win , Smith is constantly at your side. Surely a winning combination.
