RF vs LF Bias
« on: November 28, 2016, 08:22:40 pm »
So....  I have installed the Wilwood front caliper kit.  I have asked several people as to which wheel to decrease pressure to and have had several different answers.  My initial thought is that the RF should be decreased so as to help through the corner.  If the LF is decreased would it not create real nasty understeer?  I'd love to hear some more thoughts on this.  Go...!

Right front.
You are correct in your thinking that if the right front is decreased the left front will help turn the car through the corner.
If the left front were decreased it would create a push (understeer).

Are you running on asphalt or dirt? For asphalt ovals you want the bias to run to the LF. The RF wheel is getting most of the load on corner entry and it will cause the LF to lock up first. Reducing the amount of brake pressure on the LF will prevent the lockup and allow you to brake harder.

On dirt, running it to the RF brake is better because the LF brake will help the car rotate.

Thanks for the clarification!  When explained in terms of corner load THAT makes perfect sense.
