Thanking you again for bringing us ALL the action from our favorite races!!!

A machine built to “eliminate the impossible,” The Eliminator from BJ McLeod Motorsports allows race teams the ability to simulate on track suspension travel at the shop or at the track with this cost-effective, portable machine. The Eliminator’s unique design will enable your team to have a distinct advantage over the competition!

With The Eliminator you will be able to accurately check the following, without having to remove shocks and springs: square all four wheels at ride height, full travel or anywhere in between, check rear steer, bump steer curve, caster curve, camber curve, simulate tire deflection, suspension travel for clearance, body clearance for tire rubs, accurately align the drive line, use your shock travel indicators to set your bump stops and have your cross member heights set before you leave the shop, ackerman and toe-in.

For more on The Eliminator, call BJ McLeod Motorsports at (863) 602-4842 or visit www.bjmcleodmotorsports.com
