Choosing the Correct Seat

Ever notice how some drivers appear more comfortable in their chassis than you? Have you considered selecting a different style or seat size? Choosing the right seat is a very important step in the assembly of your chassis. Without the correct seat, a driver's posture will not be correct in the chassis which could often lead to poor results. Take a minute and see how the professionals choose a seat.

Properly Setting Toe

There should no detail overlooked when preparing your chassis for competition. Whether it is assembly, engine and tire preparation, or scaling your chassis, each step is as critical as the step prior. Even a small detail like setting the toe should be done accurately and precisely to ensure your chassis is performing to its full potential. Here, you will see the recommended procedure for setting toe.

Front End Geometry

Fully adjustable front ends were introduced several years ago and are offered on all new Phantom chassis today. These adjustments include caster, camber, Ackermann, and lead. However, understanding these adjustments and the effects they have on the chassis is crucial prior to making any changes on your chassis. Watch as Harrill Wiggins explains the correct way to adjust front end geometry.
