Sample text

As the old saying goes, forewarned is forearmed. Motor vehicle code The state regulatory agencies generally set forth their requirements in the motor vehicle code for each state. Many people are familiar with the VC initials followed by a series of numbers on the ticket for a traffic citation (for example, exceeding the posted speed limit). The same book of codes that dictates how fast you may drive on the highways of your state, or whether you can make a right turn against a red light, also lists requirements that vehicles must meet within that state’s jurisdiction.

In short, it is a good use of a very capable platform endowed with the ability to perform to amazing potential with minimal compromises to its usability or reliability. However, the less flattering counterpoint is the unglamorous, unfast car that will never be fast, will never live up to expectations, and will never make sense to anyone, including its owner, regardless of how much time or money is thrown into it. ” These less-than-glamorous projects that never quite worked out, many of which the owners still make monthly payments on, greatly outnumber the successfully executed modified cars that are seen rolling down the road with style and stellar performance.

There is an important caveat here: For the better performing car to truly be safer, it needs to be driven responsibly; when its limits are increased, it must be done with minimal compromise to the car’s ability to communicate with the driver and perform seamlessly at its operating parameters. All too often, you hear or read of unfortunate accidents that have resulted from when a misguided performance enthusiast equips his or her car with a stiffer suspension and stickier tires believing these to be ideal from an active safety standpoint, only to learn the hard way that the car which once exhibited mild and controllable understeer characteristics (with plenty of warning before the tires reached their limit) now corners at higher limits under ideal conditions, but on public roads is easily caught off balance by normal road imperfections, transitions from understeer to sudden oversteer with little provocation, and exhibits a razor-thin envelope between having grip and suddenly having no grip at all.
