Roller Test Bench

Slot Car Corner

SKU: RT-0100

It's easy to look at the Roller Test Bench and dismiss it ("What's the big deal?"). The roller test bench doesn't measure anything directly. However, looks can be deceiving - here are some of the things you can do with the Roller Test Bench.

  • Break-in motors
  • Break in gears (i.e. improve gear mesh)
  • Check/adjust gear mesh
  • Check for bent axles
  • Check for excessive rear bushing play ("slop")
  • Check for out-of-round wheels and/or tires
  • Check for tires that are not seated on wheels properly
  • Examine drivetrain components while running (body off)
  • Check for body interference (body on) - simulate body roll by putting light pressure on different areas of the body
  • Check rear wheel RPM's (requires non-contact tachometer which must be purchased separately)

Fits 1:32 and most 1:24 RTR cars. (e.g. Carrera, BRM, Scaleauto)

We've been using variations of this tool for the past 7-8 years. It's simple to use and effective. Whenever Team SCC goes racing, there's a Roller Test Bench in our pitbox.
