If your really struggling with setting toe. This way works, its not the greatest method of doing it, but it will get you by. Turn everything on and get your buggy to track straight. find a wall that doesn't have molding around the bottom, and lean your buggy against it. front wheels on the floor, wing and rear tires going up, against the wall. You can now use your camber gauge on the floor to your front tires to see how much toe you are running. you want to try to compress the suspension to your ride height when you have it against the wall. I used the wall in the basement (concrete floor, brick wall) now im more of a setup station kind of guy. this method will get you by. you can get it within less then a degree, its not the easiest way to do it but it does work

I just love my CSI (blue) pistons. Running 45 front / 40 rear and the buggy handles great. Running at a different track this weekend and will do some testing but happy for now.

I'm using bitty design serpent s811 and has a great fit. Reshape the nose and made my own body mount holes. Good looking body and was on clearance for $19.99 painted.

Why put the buggy on the wall and attempt to hold it at ride height? Why not leave it on the floor (or table) sitting at ride height and use the camber gauge against the wall?

You can. If you find it easier that way go for it. My camber gauge is a little easier that way. Its really sloppy so i need to pinch it to check. I have to flip it upside down for the other tire. Its moved on me before when i was flipping it back over to read it. My way was more of habit then anything else. Either way will work. It will get you close

Wow nitro2be that was a steal! That looks great. I couldn't find anything like that still available. Well it looks like there's a decent amount of options. I'll probably get the silencer or assassin next. I just ordered a custom upgrade skin, website says it's for the MBX7 but it should fit the R body right?

1/8 buggies run a lot of toe out,also don't forget to look at your car on the ground because of bump steer when the wheels are off the ground it will appear to have a ton of toe out. The stock setting is good, are you changing it because it doesn't look right? You can't go by that.
