Sled set-up

Postby graeme » Wed Oct 01, 2008 3:28 am

Anyone give me any pointers on sled set-up? I usually just rent a sled at the track, but I've no idea if its set "fast" or "slow". I do know turning the allen bolt gives more (faster) or less bow (slower, but more control), but that's about it...

And what work/polishing might you do to the runners? Is it like bobsleigh (sorry, bobsled to you guys :) ) where you rub down with a coarse abrasive paper, and then work your way to finer grades?

Hi Graham

As for the sled setup you will learn in time as for runner prep I have listed a general guide that I follow.
