Here’s a quick way to make some easy setup adjustments for your race, without getting too deep into things. Some of these adjustments can be made during the race to adjust for changes in the track temperature and conditions, or to deal with changes in your chassis from damage.
To learn about pit adjustments (things you can do during the race), visit the Race Adjustments section of the troubleshooting guide.
Fixing “Tight” Conditions
- Raise the track bar one click on each side
- Move the ballast back (only if it gets tight towards the end-of-run)
- Fill the gas tank to full on pit stops
- Increase tire pressures at the left front and right rear
- Decrease tire pressures at the left rear and right front
Fixing “Loose” Conditions
- Lower the track bar one click on each side
- Move the ballast forward (only if it gets loose towards the end-of-run)
- Do not fill the gas tank to full on pit stops; stop at about 15 gallons (or even less, if the looseness is severe)
- Decrease tire pressures at the left front and right rear
- Increase tire pressures at the left rear and right front
