Now Available: The Clear Drill Jig

Post by Skywalker Racing » Thu Feb 08, 2018 12:03 am

STAR CARS is pleased to now offer The Clear Drill Jig on our website.

The Clear Drill Jig is easy to use and results in a very accurate drill. My own two Scouts used the jig to win Pack and District last year, and I'm excited to make these available to all Scouts at a very reasonable price point.

NEWLY AVAILABLE!!! With the new 5-bushing model, it's never been easier to rail ride. This model is designed to drill a dominant front axle hole that will give your car about 4 inches of steer over 4 feet WITHOUT having to bend axles or tune.


PS - New products and videos coming soon. Stay tuned!

Will it do a raised wheel?

Thanks for the question.

It does not have a 0 degree bushing set higher for a raised wheel, no. But in all my experience, I've never needed to drill higher to achieve a raised wheel when rail riding because of the lift the bent axle on the dominant front (steering) wheel gives the front end.

If not rail riding, or if you just want that thing higher than it needs to be, you could 1) bend the lifted wheel axle to get more height, 2) drill the lifted wheel hole using the 3 degree bushing meant for the rear wheels, or 3) shim the lifted side with feeler gauges, paper or any other method you choose when drilling using the 0 degree bushing.

Happy to answer any other questions you may have.
