Steve Sawtelle of Slot Car Corner has put together a video which demonstrates how to install and align aftermarket bushings into a plastic 1/32 RTR chassis. Proper bushing alignment is an example of a "little thing" which when combined with other "little things" can make a big difference in how well your car performs. The bushing alignment procedure shown in this article can be performed by virtually all 1/32 slot car racers - no special skills are required. The whole process takes just a few minutes to perform and there is minimal one-time investment required to purchase a burr bit and pin gage like those shown in the article.
The chassis used for this demonstration is a Scalextric Monte Carlo (Nascar); however, this same technique can be applied to a wide variety of 1/32 slot cars which come stock with Scalextric-style nylon or brass bushings.
For those of you who prefer the convenience of a pre-packaged kit, you can purchase bushing alignment kits in the Slot Car Corner Online Store.
Note: The video is broken down into 3 segments because of length restrictions imposed by YouTube.
