Moonface Racing Roll Center Adjuster

18 Sep

 

Moonface Racing just released a Roll Center Adjuster for the Z33, so I thought I would take the time to explain what a roll center adjuster does and plug a new product…

Three things happen when you lower your ride (other than it looking much better 🙂 ). You will:

  • Lower the center of gravity.  
  • Change the suspension geometry that countless Japanese engineers (who also happen to be much smarter than you) had created for the car when it leaves the factory.
  • Lower the roll center that again, came preset by factory 

When you lower a car, the distance between the center of gravity and the roll center increases, causing the roll stiffness to decrease, and voila you ended up inducing something you thought you were correcting – body roll.  Sure you can mask this with stiffer springs and stiffer sway bars, but this is only a band-aid.  If this is on your street car, stiffer springs also means a harsher ride.

The Moonface Roll Center Adjuster will raise the roll center up (without affecting the ride height) and bring the suspension geometry back into factory spec.  This decreases the distance between the center of gravity and the roll center and as a result, drum roll please … less body roll.

Another byproduct of correcting the suspension geometry, is that you will increase turn-in speeds and reduce bumpsteer. Which if you don’t know … are good things.

Wow that sounds great, Shaun – where can I buy it? Good question reader, right here
