Camber Considerations:
  • Charger recommends no more than 3.0° negative camber in the RF and no more than 1.0° positive in the LF at any point in time.
Toe in / out:
  • 1/16" to 1/8" toe-out standard on all weight outs.
  • Charger never recommends toe-in.
Caster Considerations:
  • 9.0° of positive caster LF and 11.5° of positive RF caster is standard on all weight outs.
  • Remember: Positive caster is when the top of the caster block is leaned back towards the rear of the kart.
Chassis Lead:
  • Changing chassis lead can be a great tool to enhance the drivability of the kart. Changing lead is a big change. Be mindful of this and don't let this throw you off.
  • Forward Lead: For larger tracks that have sweeping turns or that are 1/4 mile in length or longer
  • Rearward Lead: For smaller tracks that have tight turns, or indoor tracks
