Slot Car Corner first introduced these set screws 4+ years ago - our customers have been using them with excellent results ever since. Unlike set screws used to secure wheels and gears to axles which typically feature a "cup" point, these set screws have a smooth, oval "point". The result is REDUCED FRICTION as the front axle rotates. In addition, the oval point allows for more precise adjustment and positioning of the front axle than is possible with a cup point set screw. Our oval point set screws are RACE-PROVEN in several grueling 24 hour endurance races (Chicago 24, Michigan 24, Quebec City 24), numerous proxy races (CanAm, Race Across America, Forums Cup) and other competitive events.
Our 4-40 oval point set screws are ideal for use with adjustable axle blocks featured on some NSR cars with chassis allowing the front axle height to be adjusted. SCC 4-40 Oval Point Set Screws are available in two (2) lengths (1/8" and 3/16").
Requires a .050" (1.3mm) hex wrench for installation and removal (available for purchase separately - see below).
Sold in packages of ten (10).
