Help Guides

Today’s “Tip of the Week” is all about help guides and conversion charts. I regularly keep these in my DropBox cloud account for easy access on my phone or tablet when I’m at the track. There are simply sometimes when it’s been one of “those” days where I need to make sure my next decision is a sound one before I make a chassis change. Here are a few I carry around with me.

My personal setup guides. These are pieced together from various other guides, articles I’ve read, or tips I’ve picked up along the way. They’re by no means a “bible” of any sort but my “notes” along the way. No more, no less.

There is always the Hudy Off-road Tuning guide. Extremely helpful. I do warn everyone though that this was designed around 4wd 1/8 Buggies. So bear that in mind when considering the adjustments, etc.

The last one is a very convenient “Setup Helper” which I’m told is a condensed easier to read version of the Hudy guide. Thanks to Will S for sharing this document.

Setup guides, charts, and notes are vital to keeping track of your car and it’s adjustments.  Make a setup sheet and take notes. These are invaluable to return to should you find yourself struggling at a track. All the top pro guys keep notes, even if you don’t see them out in their pits. Even a simple notebook where you make comments on changes, etc.  Tracks change, tires change, conditions change and having good notes will help you get on pace with your setup faster than someone who just guesses.

Good Racing!
