With the summer nearing its end, Ridetech’s Weight Database is gaining entries rapidly, but what’s the point of it all? Well, as you could probably guess, the Weight Database provides a list of cars, their basic specs and what each checked car weighs, giving you an idea how heavy your car may be with a similar setup. But retrieving the weights for the database isn’t the only point behind Ridetech’s “weigh station” booths at shows like the Goodguys events. Ridetech also provides ride quality analysis and suspension checks right at their booth, ensuring you’re ride is safe and comfortable, and offering advice on products if it’s not. Check out Ridetech performing some of these checks and the impact it’s having on the street rod community in the Ridetech TV video above.
Ridetech may be an aftermarket suspension company, but selling their products isn’t the only driving force behind the services they continue to provide at shows across the country. In all actuality, a major driving force is keeping you safe and comfortable behind the wheel of your custom, hot rod or classic vehicle. Why? Well, safety is always a must and if you don’t enjoy the ride, what’s the point in taking it?
Ridetech believes in solving hot rodders’ problems and they’ve come across quite a few in providing their services.
One issue the company sees frequently is hot rods with a shock that’s too short in the rear, not allowing for a decent amount of wheel travel for a comfortable ride. Another issue is people’s misconceptions about spring rate and how stiff springs should be for ride quality and performance. Fortunately, Ridetech knows how to address these issues head on and can even make you’re hot rod’s ride quality just as good as a brand new car’s, and yes, they truly mean that. Leave it to the guy who rejects the notion that you’ll have to settle for a lesser ride quality if you own a hot rod to come up with the best plan of action to get your ride as enjoyable as possible.
Part of Ridetech’s ability to fix suspension problems faced by hot rod owners is their experience. Bret Voelkel, owner of Ridetech, has been tackling suspension systems for years and has been faced with just about every issue imaginable. That and product quality is what makes Ridetech’s products more advanced than some of those cheaper brands on the market.
Experience, quality materials and a want to solve issues that many hot rodders face is what makes Ridetech so successful and why so many hot rodders choose to use their products no matter what kind of vehicle they have.
Be sure to hit up the Ridetech booth at your local shows the rest of the season for a chance to improve your car’s ride quality and safety.
