2019 Prepare to Win Seminar

February 17, 2019

Reserved Seating Tickets are now sold out. Standing Room only is available.


2019 Prepare to Win
Chassis Set-Up Seminar
Presented by Mike Dicely and the Hyper Racing Team

Written into the mission statement 25 years ago was that we wanted to educate our customers and to not have "secrets". To withhold knowledge from the world for selfish reasons is to waste a life. Knowledge and truth is not something we own, but a gift that has been shown to us and a responsibility to share.

In celebration of our 25 years of living the dream life, and to hold true to our mission statement, we will be giving our Prepare to Win Setup Seminar away for free this year. We will also offer it for free on YouTube for the whole world to see several weeks after the event is complete. There will be no pay-per-view this year in an effort to provide a better quality video later.
Because we have limited room in the shop, the live viewing reserved seating of the seminar will be limited to the first 70 to sign up. (Limit 2 reserved seats per team.) The 70 live viewing reserved seats will be assigned. First to reserve will sit in the front and we will fill around the room until all seats are taken. All others attending will be standing room with limited seating around the shop to view on the closed circuit TV broadcast. We will also have speakers throughout the shop, so you can tour the facility and listen at the same time!

Seminar Schedule

This seminar will be held at the Hyper Racing Facility on Saturday, March 23rd, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 with an hour break for lunch.

Topics include:
  • Blocking Your Chassis: How to do it, when to do it
  • Chain: Alignment, setting tension, maintenance, assembly
  • Gearing: Gear ratios, when to change gears
  • Scaling: Do I need to do it? How to properly scale your chassis and what to do with the data
  • Shocks: Shock valving, selection, setting gas pressures
  • Tires: Selection, construction, grooving
  • Assembly: Common assembly mistakes and other useful information
  • Maintenance: What and when to lube, replace, and adjust
  • Fuel Injection: How to properly take care of your fuel delivery and injection system
  • Driving: Should I go high or low?

Rethink Dirt
From the perspective of vehicle dynamics and the fundamental laws of physics, Mike will teach the truth behind why dirt track race cars do what they do. Learn what changes to make and when to make them along with the theory behind the facts. While this is not new information to the academic world, it is mind blowing information to the dirt track mentality.

  • Lateral and Longitudinal Traction: The difference between them and how to maximize the traction of each
  • Geometric and Elastic Weight Transfer: Why it matters how the weight transfers
  • Roll Couple: An understanding of which corner of the car the weight transfers to and why it makes the car loose or tight
  • Wings: Roll left, roll right, and the huge effect the wing has on the chassis
  • Roll & Pitch Centers: How wishbones, Jacob's ladders, panhard bars, and all chassis linkages affect chassis handling
  • Tires Offsets: Moving the tires in or out makes a huge change, but why?
  • Anti-Squat & Anti-Dive: What this is and is it a good or a bad thing?
  • Spring Rates: Stiffer or softer, which yields more traction?
  • Shocks: Dampening force and its effect on corner weights, which shocks to run where and why, an understanding of the full shock dampening curve and how to use it to your advantage.
  • Chassis Adjustments: What they really do
  • Questions?
