What is Geometry Part 01
Since the inception of the business in 2001, handling and vehicle dynamics have been a core expertise at RPM Technik. A well set up Porsche is a thing to behold, especially if poorly setup beforehand. In Episode 3 of ‘Technik Torque’ Tim is covering off the basics of geometry.
As the Technik Torque series continues, we will start to explore in further depth the art of geometry set up and how we can manipulate it in order to get the most out of your Porsche, be this for out right performance or on road comfort. The term ‘geo’ or ‘geometry set up’ refers to adjusting the suspension and steering settings to set the orientation of your wheels relative to the chassis of the car. Even the most basic road car has an element of adjustment, with more advanced sports cars having a really wide range of adjustments.
With the iconic layout of a 911 being rear engined, it renders it almost unique in the marketplace and to the uninitiated requires a total rethink of how to set it up. In fact the Porsche brand, is one of the only manufacturers to have front, mid and rear engine configurations within their model line up. Our state of the art Beissbarth geometry equipment allows us to work on all models, including race Porsche’s and cars with centre lock alloy wheels.
