TotalEnergies Secrets of Speed, Episode 8, Ride Control

Stiff or soft? Change driving style to get the most out of the car? In this episode of TCR’s Secrets of Speed, the drivers talk ride control.

HMO Customer Racing’s Nathan Morcom explains the philosophy of both a soft and stiff set-up, but kerbs are a major factor when deciding to go for one or the other.

With no street circuits currently on the calendar, a stiffly sprung direction is what James Moffat prefers, which is an opinion shared by Josh Buchan thanks to his background in open-wheelers.

When it comes to changing driving style to suit the set-up, this is essential as brake bias is the only adjustable option within a TCR car.
