What Matt Roach Racing can offer you…
Increasing cornering speed, reducing braking distance, adding stability and enhancing traction during acceleration may all be achieved by optimising your suspension. Probably the best value to reduce your lap time.
We, at Matt Roach Racing, will try our best to give you advice and help regarding the best suspension set-up for your vehicle, bearing in mind what you use it for and what you are trying to achieve. Whatever people may tell you, there is never one answer suitable for all situations. An oval race car can be optimised to turn one way. A long circuit car needs to be stable and feel safe at high speeds. A road-going hot hatch needs to be able to cope with speed bumps without destroying the exhaust. For example, contrary to some popular belief, lowering a car too much may actually result in worse handling than the original setup. The original ‘designed-in’ suspension geometry needs to be considered to ensure any modifications work with, rather than against, existing components. If you are competing at any level, making your car corner better will, in almost all cases, result in a faster lap time than just upping the power available. Suspension development is usually better value than engine tuning alone and may last longer too!
Flocking is a process of applying nylon fibres to an item electrostatically. We ensure every flocked item leaves us with a professional, durable finish. We can offer 40 different colours and have the ability to mix bespoke colours to suit your requirements.
Flocking is used in many different industries – a common application is on dash boards and interior trim in race and rally cars, the flocked finish eradicates sun glare from the windscreen and is atheistically pleasing.
We can flock various materials including Carbon-Fibre, Fibre Glass, Aluminium, Stainless Steel and phenolic skinned composite board which is used extensively in aerospace.
We can provide a dash removal and fitting service for any vehicle. Collection and delivery service available.
