HO Tuning Tips, Dragster
#1

I wanted to start a thread here on how to tune your chassis, where to find information, what to look out for,.......

A very good source is another Forum, just dealing with HO Dragster :
https://nitroslots.com/forum

Another massiv source is of course YouTube.
A very good Video for 4gear tuning to start with is this: https://youtu.be/i9-L5lbNjHU

My personal standards that helped: 
  • a stiff chassis is faster on the strip. For a road course I would choose a more flexible chassis.
  • If lifting the rear of the chassis and applying power the whole chassis should not wobble/shake. This means no wobble on the axel, the rims should be round as should be the tires. It should run very quiet. More wobble - more time on the clock!
Hope this helps ! Please ask questions, more than willing to help and to answer!

Please share your insights, experiences, test results......!!!!!!!

The closer the racing, the more fun for all of us!!!! Wrench

What a pity, I was hoping that a few more racers would join the discussion. 

Discussion means that more than one member is involved, that's a report....... Tappingfoot


Nobody willing to share information? C'mon guys, asking for info without sharing doesn't work.......

Andy shared an info in one of his threads: stiffer braids are faster than softer ones. Having tested both, yes he's absolutely wright!
