MotoIQ has long been a trusted source for technical knowledge covering a wide range of subjects, and although founder Mike Kojima is an automotive jack of all trades, it’s his vast knowledge of suspension tuning that we tap into for this episode.

Mike first talks us through basic suspension set up rules to live by, the pitfalls of cheap parts, and points out where he sees enthusiasts going wrong time and time again — it turns out that it’s not all that hard to take a step backwards in handling performance when fitting new parts if you don’t know what you’re doing.

The episode then dives pretty deep into the finer details of handling, focusing on tyre temps, front-wheel drive and drift-specific wheel alignment secrets, as well as super-common issues that could be fixed relatively easily with a few tweaks. 

Finishing up with a fascinating look into the world of Formula D suspension, wheel alignment, and tyre setups, this episode is required listening for anyone that likes to go fast.
