The Rambach science for the Professional Racing
“I know exactly how my car must be tuned. No matter where do I start. Either it is a ring of DTM or World Rally Championship, I always want to have as neutral car as possible!” Matias Extreme, the Champion of DTM 2004.
Thus, a racing car is tuned for certain conditions, to demonstrate the better time on a ring and to be competitive in rush. Those are objective conditions. Let’s not forget about a pilot, whose style of driving and whose wishes regards tuning of his car are of great importance. There are subjective factors. The combination of these two led to a question: how high is the performance of the pilot, and how accurate is the racing engineer’s interpretation of the data being obtained. In any case, reasonable shall be an alliance, where the engineer and the pilot complement one another successfully to reach their common goal.
What makes a racing car so fast? Is it dynamics of its acceleration? No. Is it an ability of a car to accelerate after turn? Yes! Besides, it shall precisely response to the pilot’s actions, shall have a distinct feedback, to make the pilot to perceive the margin of its tires’ adherence to cover of the road. While stepping down on the throttle, the sliding of the car’s front and back tires must be equal; this is an expression of neutral turnability. Let’s remind the words by Matias Extreme from the quotation. These words approve that tuning principles for any types of racing do always remain the same. The explanation is that every car, despite of cover of a road it’s moving on, is influenced by the similar physical laws.
Let’s formulate once more the tasks for tuning of a racing car: to reach the better possible control of tires’ adhesion with the road for a certain pilot, for a certain road, for certain conditions. In marginal conditions, each trifle is of great importance. That’s why it’s so important to define, how certain adjustments shall effect on the car’s behavior, and what depends on driving. May be a pilot is too aggressive adding speed while turning? Does redistribution of a car’s weight while its entering a turn occurs in the correct point and properly? May be, a pilot provokes improper turnability by over-sharp entering or too late slowdown. If a pilot enters constantly the turns too fast, it leads to “slow down” trajectory. May be, the car’s nervous behavior is caused by careless use of steering wheel?
Thus, engineers of the Rambach Industrie GmbH are constantly improving the technology of managing a racing car’s engine.
What is the difference between the Rambach’s tuning for the racing spots and ordinary modules intended to increase capacity and to decrease fuel consumption - Rambach PowerBox?
For ordinary cars, we have to achieve a balance of the following parameters:
- preservation of a car’s guarantee
- preservation of a car’s motor resource
- decrease in fuel consumption
- meeting environmental requirements
In case of cars for racing sports, we are not limited by legislation. We are only governed by sound mind, laws of physic, our experience, and wishes of the racing pilot, which factor is the most versatile one.
There are the same modules for extending capacity that we offer for standard, serial automobiles. Being installed on a professional racing car, they demonstrate overwhelming results in dynamics and controllability.
