We also set our front axles at 3/16" right lead at ride height.

I guess this just help the car turn in better? So if the track got really dry slick. Not that, that ever happens on the tracks that we run on but just suppose it does. Shocked Would you want more right front leading or less? I guess I am just trying to figure out what effect this would have on the car and were I would want more or less right leading.

Thanks, Mark

Setting toe-in/out

Post  openwheel44 on Fri Jan 30, 2009 10:05 am

Pretty simple really.....For dirt racing you want toe-out. I set all of the "Jayhawk" related cars with 1/8" toe-out. This is measured at the outside diameter of the tires. Be sure and mark the spots on the tire you use and rotate them 180 degrees being sure to use the same marks. Make sure you don't disturb the "steering" setting while rotating the tires which should be set straight ahead. We also set our front axles at 3/16" right lead at ride height. This is measured at the kingpin boss in relation the firewall and checked against the rear axle after it has been squared in the frame at ride height. Some change "axle lead" for different track sizes and shapes but I usually just leave that alone.

How to set toe?

Post  Admin on Tue Jan 27, 2009 6:48 pm

In karting I used to either string my kart or take a tape measure to see were toe was set. I currently set the toe with a tape measure on the lighting sprinter also. But I really dont know how accurate I am becuase I have to try and find a clear shot around bars, radiator and so forth. What is the correct way to set the toe? Is there a tool I can buy?

Thanks, Mark
