Thread: Sprint owners discussion

  1. #1481
    Bit quiet in here nowadays.

    I've always struggled for traction in my Sprint 6 and have posted here about it a few times.

    Most times, from a standstill, it would wheelspin, traction control would intervene and then it would change up early, around 4,000rpm. Very frustrating not being able to extract the best from the car. This is with warm tyres, on decent roads, with the right tyre pressures and plenty of meat on the p zero's.

    I recently took mine in for a wheel alignment at a reputable shop.

    A bunch of smaller changes were made to get the alignment within spec for the sprints.

    But from factory the rear passenger had 4.0mm of toe, and the rear drivers 2.0mm.

    After having this corrected (and having the rear wheels pointed in roughly the same direction!), the car now puts power down much more effectively.

    Most times from a standstill it will now use all of the available RPM before changing up, so its a much quicker sprinter (see what I did there?)

    Also puts power down better in other scenarios too.

    So if you've got lots of traction problems with your sprint or late model Falcon, you'd do worse than to get your alignment checked as a starting point.
