The ride height should be kept to a minimum; this will keep the centre of gravity of the car as low as possible and maximising cornering speeds. The ride height should ideally be between 4 – 6 mm (1/8"-3/16"), but on bumpy tracks or where regulations dictate otherwise run the car a little higher. Check regularly to compensate for tire wear which can be rapid on some tracks.
Adjusting the front ride height
A-arm spacers cab be mounted under A-arms of the front suspension. Placing the front A-arms block lowers the chassis (less ride height) and conversely putting them above raises the chassis, giving more ride height.
Adjusting the rear ride height
Three molded different pairs of rear axle bearing holders have been included in the kit, they are all off-set to give 6 different rear axle height settings. Optional Available are six pairs of rear axle Hard Anodised Aluminium bearing holders. With these settings it is possible to fine tune the ride height with different kind of tire sizes.
Remove the rear axle and fit the appropriate pair of bearing holders to each end of the rear axle tube, complete with ball bearings and put the rear axle back into place. Do not forget to re-mesh your pinion and spur gear. Always use the same height setting on both sides of the car otherwise the rear axle bearings will lock up.
