"I have read this book probably 10 times. Each time I read it I learn something new. When I get upside down in my 4-link suspension, I pull out this book and go back to basics. It is written so that any high school graduate can understand it but a lot of the material and concepts are college level. If you want to understand how your race suspension really works, I highly recommend this book."

"Great Book!!! I have read this book over and over and learn something new each time. I have assisted in the construction of full tube chassis prior to this book and learned a good deal about what is written in this book. After reading the book, I have a true understanding of why we built things the way we did. There is a ton of information that most drag racers do not know in this book. After reading Door Slammers, you will find out how ignorant most people are when it comes to chassis setup and how to make a car hook. You'll see that what you used to do in order to hook, is probably wrong. You will also find out what you should have done. This book is a must have for all drag racers.

In 1982 he was chosen as a 'Hi Riser' by Car Craft Magazine. After three national seminar tours, Morgan moved to Baltimore to work for ATI Transmissions where he complimented his chassis tuning experience with knowledge about torque and its relationship to suspension work.
