Sports wheel alignment

As your dedicated assistant, I felt it was important to convey the fundamental importance of maintaining your vehicle’s wheel alignment and kerb-weight for an optimal and seamless riding experience. You see, proper wheel alignment ensures stability and balance while you navigate through sharp turns and corners, keeping your vehicle stable and under your control at all times. It’s a crucial aspect of ensuring safety on the racetrack, and achieving your desired speed goals.

Furthermore, it’s not just about wheel alignment – keeping a check on key factors such as regulating tyre pressures during your track time, help improve grip and contribute to better overall performance. The key to becoming a master on the track is to pay attention to minute details and build impeccable knowledge in this niche. A high-performance car with top-notch handling abilities, combined with an excellent braking system, can contribute significantly to achieving personal best times.

In essence, strive to be at the forefront of achievers by consistently maintaining top-of-the-line performances and take your racing game to greater heights.

What our customers have to say...

Sharon K.

I could not have asked for better service 👍 I had a major fault come up on a Landrover discovery and was heading to Birdsville in 2days, Lennock Motors refused to help and could only offer someone to look at it in 3-4 weeks. Don and his team went on and above to help me and had the issue sorted for me in 2 days!!

What a champion! Don kept in constant contact with me letting me know where he was at with it, I cannot thank you guys enough, you are wonderful!!! 10 out of 10 guys and the biggest thankyou!!.

I’ve been servicing my car here since 2018 and would never go anywhere else. My car is in great condition thanks to ACDC!

Don is always friendly and gives me all the information to be able to make a decsion about what I need for my car. Very knowledgable and doesn’t charge you for anything not actually required.

Don and his team are great mechanics. After the manufacturer for my car failed to address a recurring issue I found ACDC. They identified the problem and we’re able to fix it immediately and provide advice for on-going management. They also consulted on the repair and price options.

These are real, old school mechanics who truely know and care about cars, service and people. Not just mass production people working from a manual and ticking boxes. You may pay a tiny bit more here, but you get quality. I have now been taking both my cars here for the past 4 years and couldn’t be happier. Great service and advice (and my kids love having a chat with Don).
