Highly detailed design, 4-piece construction
Quick reference dimensions and size considerations are common place in the RC pit area. Racers have asked over and over for a small footprint item that is able to measure small spaces accurately and quickly. The quick reference calipers are analog based and capable to be locked into place to secure or save dimensions for later or to copy side-to-side. The all-aluminum built and anodized item, built from 4 pieces, is a very technical and precise piece.
The quick reference tool has the ability to measure inside surfaces and outside surfaces depending on which end is chosen for use. A graduated scale is laser etched onto the item to allow the user to measure in .5mm increments. A thumbscrew allows the sliding plane to be locked into place for quick comparisons and reference distances. A display window is machined into the upper slide where dimensions are shown up to an overall length of 80mm. A small overall size makes it ideal to place in to RC sized tool and lock boxes used routinely out in the field.
Notes from the team –
Drivers on the team use the quick reference calipers to measure pre-load on shock collars, turnbuckle lengths for kit builds and rebuilds. It is also helpful to measure screw lengths and diameters along with washer thicknesses at the time of building or tuning. If you have a small dimension in question, you can always turn to the quick reference caliper for an answer.
