RATT Equipment Recommendations
Wheels and Tires:
There are four small patches of rubber that keep you in contact with the track surface. Your tires should be in good condition with no cords or belts showing. The treads, assuming you use street tires, should not be worn to the wear indicators. Track tires or slicks should also be in good condition. It’s suggested you consider replacing any tires that have been previously patched or plugged. Wheel covers, beauty rings and center caps should be removed. Most cars will need higher tire pressures for on track activities. Check your owner’s manual for any references to pressures and speak with other owners of similar cars with track experience.
Brakes and Fluid:
Your brake system should be in excellent working order with no leaks or visual defects. Brake lines are often made of rubber and rubber degrades over time. Make sure your lines have no cracks. A good set of DOT approved braided steel brake lines are suggested. Fluid should be new throughout the brake system. Track specified brake pads are not necessary but recommended. If your vehicle is equipped with brake lights they need to correctly function.
Suspension and Steering:
The steering should turn easily with no evidence of binding from lock to lock. There should be no excessive play in the shock or strut mounts, trailing arms, roll bars or other suspension pieces. Grab each wheel with the car elevated to make sure the wheels don't move from side to side. If you have loose suspension pick up points, worn suspension bushings or bad bearings these issues need to be corrected prior to your test & tune day.
The engine area should be free of leaks. Make sure your battery is properly secured with a strap or harness and make sure the battery posts are covered.
If you are participating using a street legal vehicle it is recommended that you leave your front side windows down while on track. In the event of an emergency this will aid the safety crew in communication and extraction. Be sure to clean your windows to prevent sun glare and to increase visibility.
Make sure all loose objects like floor mats, jacks, garage door openers, CDs, cassette tapes, etc. are removed from your car. A gym bag makes a great addition to hold all these items during your sessions.
After your session:
After you come off the track from a session, let your car idle for a few minutes, possibly with the hood up, allowing the car to cool. Do not use your parking brake as the heat from the pads/rotors may warp your brake rotors.
