LeViteZer tuning tips

I thought to post some tuning tips here, for most part they are not invented by us. They are just tuning tips that we have found useful to be used with the LeViteZer anti-roll front. We welcome you to post your tuning tips here.

So the first tuning tip:

Though it may seem that camber can not be adjusted if a fixed upper tower bar is used, this is not entirely the case. Using shimming under the tower bar affects the camber and so does shimming the king pin. Shimming in these two places can be used to adjust the camber, within certain limits. See the user manual page 9 for more information on this. http://www.levitezer.com/Support.html

Are you talking about static camber? Or camber gain through the arc of motion?

I suppose both, i.e setting the average camber. On this kind of setup the camber will change when the wheel moves up/down as the lower arm is fixed.

Balancing the car is important for the performance. front/rear balancing is done by sifting the weight and is matter of taste and driving style, but left/right should be balanced. LeViteZer front when shimmed right is usually well balanced, but the rear left/right need to be often balanced. Notice that rear affects also front balance.

There is many ways of checking the balance, but 4 scales is the easiest and most reliable I know. When balancing the car notice though that transmitter should be turned on so that front wheels are straight.

This video demonstrates how front wheel direction affects the balance. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yjkp...wn2tjdQkQegH2g

I am totally in love with the set up using the original parts in the start here positions. With the Audi I trimmed .6 off my best and tonight I switched to the Mosler and got .2 more with no other changes. Impressive for me. There is still some fine tuning to be done but this is a really great accessory.

Thanks, that is always good to hear and happy customers encourage us on what we are doing, and so there might be couple of new LeViteZer accesories by the end of the year...
