New to jr dragster racing

Postby stevereynolds84 » Sat Sep 01, 2018 3:10 pm

Just purchased our first jr dragster and have identified the engine as a jr racecar raptor engine and from pictures I’ve been looking at, a Monaco chasssis. The guy I bought it from didn’t know anything g about it. Does anyone have any info on Monaco chassis? I’ve searched the internet but have found nothing. Also, what electronics would you recommend for beginners? Do I need a data logger or would a tiny tach work? Any other advise for beginners would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Welcome to the POOL smiley-wave

It's mt humble opinion that a data recorder is one of the best investments you can make. Not only can it tell you things about the cars performance that your driver can not, It can mean the difference in weather or not another Jr parent can offer any advise on a run or issue you could face. I recommend the Mychron 4 660 hands down.

If you haven't seen my videos they could shed some light on some questions for you as well as give you an idea on what the 4 669 is capable of.....


Besides that, ask us anything regardless of how trivial you think it may be.

Sorry, never heard of your chassis make though.

Welcome to the sport. Monaco was a good chrome molly chassis in it's day,safe and reliable. Might need to have some upgrades as far as required bars that need added,if they were not done in the past. We had one back in 2000,they are no longer in business.
