The fastest NASCAR driver hits speeds at more than 200 mph. Getting their “stock” cars to perform at this level requires precision tuning before each race based on track setup, weather, and other factors. With hundreds of hours of planning and preparation, cars still require additional tuning during the race to account for unanticipated or changing conditions. For example, pit crews commonly perform wedge adjustments, which are rear-wheel suspension changes that help cars grip the road better when anomalies, such as bumps, occur.
Artificial lift systems are similar to racing cars. Plans and preparation can cause a lift system to perform optimally in the beginning but changing conditions and anomalies can degrade performance and negatively impact production and operating costs.
