Tuning tip: measure in thousandths.

1/12 tuning is done in smaller measurements than you may be used to.  0.25mm changes have effect; from ride height to ball stud locations if you raise or lower something just .25mm (.010″) you can be making a drastic change.

One thing to experiment is with your ride height.  Set a car up square, or 3.5mm across the entire chassis from front to rear.  If you lower the front just .25mm you’ll notice a change in steering and how the car rotates.  I see sometimes new racers not paying as close attention and wondering why their car is so odd driving when it has 3.5mm of ride in the front and 4.2mm in the rear, or worse; vice versa!
