Red face Setting droop on mtx-4

Can someone point me in the right direction, how do you set the droop on the mtx4. I don't have any of the special setup tools yet and even if I did I wouldn't know what to do with them. Thanks for any help

If you don't have any gauges the best thing that I can say to do is 1) to set the car race ready on a flat level surface. 2) check the ride height in the front and the rear then record them on a sheet of paper. 3) now lift the front of the car in the center of the chassis until one of the front wheels comes off of the flat surface that it was sitting on. 4) just as the one wheel comes off of the surface measure the ride height at that time. 5) subtract the first reading from the second and this is a way that you can check your droop. 6) do the same thing with the rear.

One thing that you want to happen is to have both front or rear ( depending on which end your checking) wheels come off of the surface at the same time.

The way to change it is to adjust the small allen grub screw on the A arm that touches the chassis. If you turn the screw down the arm will not be able to travel down as far and limiting the travel on that A arm.

Go to the Hudy web sight and download there set-up booklet. It has great pics and instructions on all of the set-up tips.

I just went to the Hudy site and they have changed it so it is not on there to be able to download it. Try and find someone that has it.

Default setting droop

Put the car on a flat surface take a ride height gauge measure 2mm under the front upright and 4mm under the rear upright.
