This setup might suit a driver with a light touch that races primarily tight road
courses. This offers a short throw lightly sprung steering action which will get you
through chicanes quickly all while maintaining optimal hand position for the
accessory buttons at full lock. A light spring setting reduces driver fatigue for
those competing in full-length races. With reduced pressure you can maintain
precision cornering technique on the 190th lap without the sloppiness that can
come from muscle fatigue. With light spring settings, the FLDS will provide
primary resistance for wheel movement.
A driver running ovals might prefer more resistance and travel. A wide range of
travel can offer more fine steering adjustment in long sweeping corners, or could
be set up for more pit lane maneuverability. Up to 240 degrees or travel is
available with the Trackstar 6000. With heavier spring settings the role of FLDS
is reduced. Most drivers will prefer moderate to light spring settings when using
an FLDS equipped system.
STEERING LOCK ADJUSTMENT
Four positions of steering lock are available: 180, 200, 220, and 240 degrees.
The default factory setting is 240. This adjustment should be performed first
before other changes to steering resistance are contemplated.
Loosen the ten screws that attach the steering unit cover to the chassis.
Then remove the cover exposing the mechanism.
Loosen the locknut on the preload adjusting screw underneath the steering
unit, directly below the springs [Figure 21]. Turn the adjusting screw
counterclockwise until the spring pack is loosened.
Grasp the top of the spring pack and pull it out from underneath the
pressure arm. Remove the springs and spring retainers from the unit.
Locate the wheel travel limiter [Figure 26], a disk-shaped element close to
the main chassis structural plate. Rotate the steering wheel 90 degrees to
the left. The two retaining screws for the left-hand travel adjuster stop will
now be accessible. Using the supplied 3/32" hex key, loosen and remove
the 2 screws and position the stop as desired, rotating the wheel as
required to provide access. The positions are explained in Figure 23.
Next tighten the screws. Repeat the adjustment as described above for the
right-hand travel adjuster stop, making certain that the adjuster is moved
exactly the same amount as the left-hand stop.
Reinstall the spring set following steps 4-6 in the following section.
