Vehicle Traction Bars & Traction Components
Traction bars and components are essential accessories, which are typically used on high performance cars, and assist in the transportation of the engine's power to the ground. Some traction components may be suitable for vehicles needing traction, due to the type of weather or road conditions in which the vehicle is driven. Traction components typically play a role in the vehicle's suspension, which is most affected by the power of the vehicle. Traction components reduce chassis "twist" and movement of the vehicle's body, when maintaining traction becomes difficult.
A pinion snubber is a component on a vehicle which limits the upward rotation of the nose of the rear end under hard acceleration. It also helps reduce wheel hop which can occur when doing a hard launch or when doing a burnout. This device is used in both trucks and cars because it helps prevent the wheel from rubbing the inside of the fender when going over large bumps in the road. The pinion snubber does all of these things with the use of a rubber tip which contacts the floor pan of the car to prevent the additional twisting or flexing. Most pinion snubbers are adjustable so that the amount of flex in the suspension can be set to the correct setting to insure maximum performance. Continue Reading -->
Traction bars are used on the rear suspension of a vehicle to prevent the springs from wrapping up under the huge strain put upon them by the wheels. Without these bars, the leaf springs will twist so much that they will actually form an “s” when under full acceleration. This is bad because it reduces traction and forces the drive shaft to take on a sharp angle which will seriously affect the power trains performance. Wrapping up the leaf springs like this only occurs when accelerating extremely fast which is why traction bars are used allot in race cars which are put into those conditions more often.

Wheelie bars are used on high performance drag vehicles to keep the front end from rising to high under the enormous amount of power being put to the ground through the rear wheels. Besides keeping the car from becoming air born, the wheelie bar also helps steer as speeds increase. There are two different versions of wheelie bars which are sprung and unsprung. The upper tubes in a sprung wheelie bar setup will act as a dampener as the car comes up on the bars. Sprung bars are typically only used on high performance cars that use small tires. The other unsprung bar is what the super high performance cars use. These cars are able to use the unsprung bar because the tires they use are much larger and can absorb the energy created when the bars hit the ground. Continue Reading -->
