Once you have built the racer up you will need to adjust the wheels. We have found that they go best if they are straight up. You can bring the top of the rear wheels in a bit if you like the look.
Adjust the length of the rose bearing threads in the suspension parts to achieve this. Then tighten the lock nuts. (Not too tight)
The wheels need to be set in a straight line. For easy quick we use a straight piece of wood. This is put against the wheels on each side to get them straight. Adjusted by rose bearings on the back and by turning the steering arms on the front. ( Do not forget the lock nuts on the front steering arms.) Remember the front and rear wheels might not be exactly the same distance apart across the axles.
Some teams just use a garage laser system.
Now you need to adjust the wheel heights. The racer should sit on a level floor with the steering straight ahead. Bathroom scales under each front wheel should read the same. If not twist the front suspension support rod that has a rose bearing at each end after loosening the lock nuts. As there is a left and right had thread on this rod, this will raise or lower the suspension and hence the wheel.
Adjust until both wheels are pushing down with the same weight.

Finally do check entry technical specification and racing rules for any event that you are entering. These may change year on year.
