Suspension, Development and Tuning

Matt Roach Racing is one of the leading suspension set-up specialists in Essex and across the UK.

Need a suspension geometry and corner weight set-up on your race car? Perhaps we at Matt Roach Racing can help? Using our designated flat floor, we can check and adjust the alignment of your chassis, measure and correct your corner weights which together will result in a more driver friendly car, improving braking, corner speed and traction. Suspension tuning maybe the least understood but probably the best value modification you can make resulting in lower lap times with no extra driver effort.
