410 Sprint Car Build Ep 12 Wheels and Tires


Wheels and tires today the end of the
day the car should be a roller. That’s the plan I mean we got the final pieces
here so now we just got to do a few more things here and we should be ready to go.
First thing we’re gonna do we’re going to swap out the wheel hardware to
titanium on the wheel center and the bead lock. Yeah lighten up get some
rotating weight out of it too. Alright there’s a lot of them let’s get started. There you go. Alex you’re doing a good
job thanks I don’t know if anybody has told you that today. Valve stems. Valve stems we have them. It’d
be hard to do once tires on it. We can’t just drill a hole in the tire and do we
want to put the springs on for the dzeus buttons before that we put the tires on
too? We’ll do the valve stem and the rear tires and then the front ones and then we’ll do the springs. How do you tune the car with stagger? The amount of staggered it helps you around the
corner so if the track is small and it has tight corners the more stagger you use
bigger tracks with longer like wider sweeping corners you use less stagger to
keep the car straighter. So do you have different sets of mounted wheels
and tires in your trailer for? Yeah yeah I got four different left rears
that are mounted and they’re all different sizes so depending on the track
conditions and like how slick it gets I’ll change my stagger to like tighten
the car up. Alright and I think we’re ready and mount some tires. What do you torque these to? The same as
the wheel center I have already gone to 25. Oh yeah it goes a lot better. Careful I’m coming this way at least I told you.
Okay so how far is too far here? It’ll pop. Alright I think it’s sealed. It didn’t make a pop.
I think it’s because there’s WD-40. Probably we usually leave them sit for a
while and then let them back down. Left front is offset outer in. It be the
shallower of the offset it’d be farther out. And some people run different offset
right fronts to change the handling of the car a little bit. So you can change
your stack up the washers and change the stagger to with the same set of wheels?
You can change your how your spacing and it’s simple because if you want to
move your wheel out a half inch you take the half and put it on the outside. Are
we about ready to put it on the ground? Yep yeah. Oh yeah I like that I kind of want to
keep it now we’re if we can arrange that. Thank you guys I feel like this is a
kind of a big moment right? It’s always feel good kind of moment when you put a
race car on the ground. Like look look what I built. Yeah. So now we have to do the wing get it wrapped put our dummy motor in. Nerf
bars. And you’re pretty close to a race car.
