Default Rollout Charts

Hey guys, I saw some of your posts about wanting a good rollout chart for at the racetrack to make things fast and easy to figure out. I've developed a series of hard laminated gearing/rollout/spring charts called the "Pit-Pal" for the TC3, Losi XXX-s, X-Ray, Yokomo MR4 series, Schumacher Mission, and soon will have the new 12th scale one completed. Currently factory drivers for Associated, Losi, and several other teams are using these charts and loving them.

Not only do these charts provide you with everything you need to know about gearing, rollout and spring rates for your particular car...I've also tried to make them the eye-candy to make them the envy of your racing buddies. They are very colorful with the mfr's logo and colorized spring information. The charts address a spectrum of tire sizes using specific spur gear and or chassis internal drive ratios. And instead of making a huge multi-paged chart for every possible combination, there is a tranny-ratio converter on the Pit-Pal so using the same chart's numbers if you have for example a different spur gear size than your particular chart has been optimized for, you can still use the same chart for your particular needs.

A standard chart for a chosen car will only cost you $4.95 plus whatever method of shipping you would like. If its custom or personalized that you want, that's available too. Whether its your name, a track logo, unique ranges of spur gears, or whatever you may desire, let me know and they can be customized for a small additional cost based on how custom you want them to be. If this is something you think you might be interested in, send me an email with your make and model of car, the most common size spur gear that you use, 48 or 64 pitch and a return email address, to [email protected]. I know you'll love em.

Dave K is right, custom rollout charts are nice. I run on carpet track with foams and I made my own. I have a laminator and nice color printer so..... I run an X-Ray and my competition run TC3's so my chart does not help them. I have mine based on tire sizes and 3 different spurs. Makes changing ratios a snap. For the cost you cannot go wrong.
