Zeppin Racing Tweak Killer tool

Zeppin Racing introduce the Tweak Killer, a tool to ensure maximum chassis flatness of 1/10th electric touring cars. Making use of a thick CNC-machined, laser-engraved aluminium plate and a sturdy aluminium rod the tool helps to eliminate unwanted chassis tweak that can lead to an erratically handling car. The tool is pretty easy to use as first up the chassis’ bumper will be removed and all lower bulkhead and the upper top deck screws loosened. Next up the chassis is placed on the aluminium plate with the alloy rod being placed on top of the front and rear shock tower. Supplied rubber bands then hold the assembly of chassis, lower tweak plate and upper tweak rod together, ensuring maximum chassis flatness. In a final step all loosened top deck and lower bulkhead screws will be fastened and the chassis is ready to go. The Tweak Killer tool comes in a protective carrying bag for storage and transportation.
