Dynoman, just take the rear bumper off, stand the car straight up (with the nose pointing towards the ceiling) and use your rpm camber gauge to measure it.

I've got a setup station and RBlove is right... Using 1* blocks takes 1* out per side.

You can also use the 'F' block in place of the R block to take out roughly 2* toe (per side).

Okay, for all of those who don't know what they are talking about here is the answer and pictures to prove it!

This first pictures shows the standard tc3 blocks with 3+2 block in the rear in this case when you look the notch is at 3 degrees.

Now I placed a 1 degree R Losi hub on the left which will take 1 degree off that side, remember the right side reads 3 degrees so now this side reads what, oh, no, oh my god! 2 !!!!

Now the last picture will show you that I placed a R1 degree losi block on the left side to take away 1 degree of toe to that side so that there are no doubters. So, depending on the desired amount of toe you can play around with the different blocks and hubs, there are several ways to achieve the same amount of overall toe this way.

What up fellas? Thanks Fave! Some people know everything on these boards....... Oh well. Try to lend a hand or give some advice and there is always someone that does it better.......


PIMPEDACCORD, I'm mad at you No show! We ran, but it was rather boring. I only got a 31 5:08, but was on a 31 flat in the main until the last two laps. Carpet is terrible. I was told you ran a 31 5:04 or something........... Nice.


L8R boyz,
RB

I ran a mid 32, but I'm not sure if it was the same layout? I remember my laps were like 7.5's.

7.5's???? Had to be different. Fastest lap today was 9.6. I thought Gilligan had said that you ran a 31 5:4 on the current layout. Oh well. We gotta hook up soon!

Wow, Jeff you got 32 laps with 7.5 second laps, you da man brother and you only did it in 4 Minutes time!

Running 7.5 second laps would put you closer to 40 laps in 5 minutes time!

Default Re: rear toe in

OK I was mistaken on how much toe was changed per block...however if you read very carefully I was much closer than RBLOVE.....

You will have 1 degree per side...
NOW the
R+2-0 block gives you 1 degree per side this is how it achieves 2 deg. of total rear toe. IF you take 1 deg. and subtract 1 deg. you will not get 1 deg. I may not know everything.... buy I do know how to read.....

Your the expert.

Om the Warpspeed chassis, who is to say that the slight (very slight) increase in roll center is a bad thing?? maybe it helps inhance the other changes the new chassis makes over the standard tub? If you remember the roll center kit that was sold fr the HPI RS4 raised the geaboxes and motor 3mm , but left the batteries setting at the same height..... and worked extremely well..... now your only talking about raising the gearboxes and motor 0.4mm, and the batteries will still set as low in the chassis!

I am with MR. Warpspeed, until you try it don't try and determine how it effects the car unless you are a mechanical engineer specializing in race car dynamics.....

Impact,

You're still off. Maybe you can read, but comprehend...

R+2 block give 2 deg PER SIDE, with the Losi hubs backwards, minus 1 deg per side, gives you 1 deg per side.

2 - 1 = 1

Default how old is this kit?

A friend just bought a Team kit from an LHS and I was surprised to see it had the (original?) arms and composite chassis that do not have droop holes and droop screws and no place on the chassis for the droop screws to rest. Is this an original spec kit?

One nice thing, the gear boxes were some of the best molds I've seen.
