Precision Slotcar is now offering a companion to their National Championsip Chassis Fixture (previously reviewed May 22).
The part number 1401 "FCR Set-Up Wheel Blocks" helps the builder to set the clearance to .032" as specified by the NCS.
Select the tire size, with the blocks on the axle and the bushings in place, grind or file out the axle uprights until the chassis sits flat on the PSC chassis fixture. The clearance is set .010" higher than tire size so you can practice, break in the tires and still make tech.
The design of PSC's setup blocks is different from those offered by other companies- offering 4 sizes per block. This is accomplished by the use of a precision-drilled offset axle hole in the block.
