slajmers Door Slammers The Chassis Book – pages – includes quick trouble shooting guide in back. Each time I read it I learn something new. When I get upside down in my 4-link suspension, I pull out this book and go back to basics. It is written so that any high school graduate can understand it but a lot of the material and concepts are college chassiss. If you want to understand how your race suspension really works, I highly recommend this book.

I have read this book over and over and learn something new each time. I have assisted in the construction of full tube chassis prior to this book and learned a good chazsis about what is written in this book. After reading the book, I have a true understanding of why we built things the way we did. There is a ton of information that most drag racers do not know in this book.

After reading Door Slammers, you will find out how ignorant most people cbassis when it comes to chassis setup and how to make a car hook. You’ll see that what you used to do in order to hook, is probably wrong. You will also find out what you should have done.


Door Slammers : Dave Morgan :

This book is a must have for all drag racers. A reader, June 23, Dave Morgan owned some extensive motorsports credentials before joining the drag racing industry.

In college, he started auto-crossing sports cars then began his wheel to wheel racing experience in go-karts, eventually graduating to formula Fords in the mid-seventies. Morgan started his own traveling seminar company, Morgan Motorsports Network.

Aiston Industries introduced Dave to the world of drag racing when he was hired to organize their sales program and start the successful ‘Tech Tour’ that made chassis seminars so popular in the early eighties. After three national seminar tours, Morgan moved to Baltimore to work for ATI Transmissions where he complimented his chassis tuning experience with knowledge about torque and its relationship to suspension work.

The desire to return to the chassis industry was rekindled when he was offered a position at Zeeker Performance in Hicksville, Ohio.

As the General Manager there, Morgan sponsored drag racings first ever. These days, Morgan makes his living as a free-lance writer and lives on his horse ranch in West Virginia where the states central location makes it easy for him to reach east coast and mid-west race tracks.
