PostSubject: Chassis Upgrade : Auto Foam   Mon Nov 02, 2009 12:19 pm

A chassis that is stiff will perform better than one that flexes easily due to road undulations, engine torque or hard cornering forces.

Auto Foam is a very light material that comes in the form of a pre-mixed foam that will harden or cure over time. When injected in strategic places in your car's chassis mainly around the door sills, what you would experience is better driving performance. This is because as the foam expands and hardens, it would stiffen the part of the chassis without welding a piece of metal onto it. Additionally, it acts as a sound absorbent, eliminating road noise amplified by the hollow areas of the vehicle chassis. The site :
