Sample text

A car with one or more under-inflated tires will behave very differently than a car with properly inflated tires, regardless of how carefully the suspension and brakes have been dialed in. The same is true for a car that is even slightly out of alignment, or one riding on cold tires or brake pads (especially performance brake pads or tire compounds that need to be brought up to operating temperature before they are ready to perform their best). Each of these cars will feel 100 percent fine in normal use — but push them a bit, as in an emergency braking and/or cornering maneuver, and they will react very differently from what the driver is expecting, catching the driver off guard when he or she most needs the car to follow his or her inputs.

However, just because something can be done doesn’t always mean it should. Modifying a car means learning to frame your expectations of what your car can and cannot reasonably be expected to do. Every car, to a greater or lesser extent, is over-engineered from the factory to perform better than it actually does when it is released for public consumption. S. S. Performance levels are often adjusted to attain these figures. TLFeBOOK 20 Part I: Owning a Performance Car The million-dollar question is whether your own car is over-engineered by 2 percent, 20 percent, or 200 percent.

TLFeBOOK 10 Part I: Owning a Performance Car Just as these blanket statements cannot be relied on as gospel — after all, changing the windshield wiper blades can’t cause the transmission to break — neither can you assume that both the law and your warranty allow you to do whatever you want to your car. The purpose of this section is not to provide a legal dissertation, but to offer an introduction to the regulatory bodies and commercial entities that have an interest in what you do to make your car different from the way it was when you drove it back from the dealership with that new-car smell still wafting through the cabin.
