This book will help you tremendously. it will give you basic setups for different situations and help you to understand why. Definitely worth the money. New drivers and those who have been racing for 40 years will learn something from it.

Racelogic Chassis School

Time : January 26 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

January 27 9 a.m. until the last question is answered PLACE : Smileys Racing Products

103 Gross Rd. Mesquite,TX


COST:$250.00 Per Person

The 2013 class is entirely dedicated to Sport Mods and Stock Suspension cars. In the past we have done Mods and Sport Mods together, we felt last year class that strictly Stock Suspension and Sport Mods would be a better fit for this class. We welcome any Modified guys to come and Carter and Eddie will answer any questions they may have during breaks and after the class. There will be in depth discussion on all aspects of the Sport Mods and a 100 page booklet will be handed out. We are working on special guests to be added. This class is limited to the first 50. We were near capacity last year and expect more this year. So sign up early...
