FMVSS 126 - Infos
When it comes down to innovation, Safety and quality, LP Aventure is always a leader in the industry. One more example of this is having our LP Aventure packages compliant with the NHTSA and it's FMVSS126 Federal Motor Vehicle safety standard.
In an effort to reduce the risk of rollover crashes the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) established the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 126 requiring all new passenger vehicles under 10,000 lbs GVWR include an electronic stability control (ESC) system as standard equipment. FMVSS No. 126 tests new vehicle ESC systems through a series of evasive lane-change maneuver at highway speeds to ensure the driver can maintain control in critical driving situations.
To make sure that vehicle and aftermarket manufacturers are compliant with the new standards, LP Aventure in collaboration with PMG test and research center have concluded the required testing on various different model cars.
The rigorous testing involves the installation of a custom testing robot and computer system onto the vehicle along extensive data logging equipment. After this, the vehicle equipped with our LP Aventure package is being tested and run through the test track performing a series of ever growing steering adjustments and corrections. The robot can calculate all of the forces and check whether the vehicle is performing within the test requirements.
The reason behind choosing a certain height increase, offset top plate design and the final geometry in suspension is crucial not only for ride comfort, but for safety as well. The LP Aventure package successfully passed these compliance tests demonstrating how you can effectively lift your vehicle in combination with the proper wheel and tire package in full compliance with the FMVSS126 standard.
