When it comes to high performance, low-profile automobiles, the correct tool for the job is always the right choice. Floor jacks come in all sizes and shape, and are made from a wide range of materials, but they’re not all designed for your particular vehicle.
Racing floor jacks must be made from strong yet lightweight materials to stand the test of time, must properly fit beneath your vehicle, and must raise the car high enough to be useful. If any of these features are missing, you stand a good chance of not being able to properly care for your vehicle.
Safety features are also top considerations when evaluating low-profile racing floor jacks. These include such things as a padded handle for a good grip and won’t ding your car’s paint job if it hits it, and a rubberized saddle for secure, damage-free contact with the undercarriage.
Below are 3 high-quality racing floor jacks that have each been manufactured with the low-profile, high performance car in mind.
