It's a hit and miss situation bro. I never had a toe problem until I switched out the orginal pieces that came with the car. I can't say for sure if I got a bad batch of parts as I purchased them from two different places and one shipment came from TOP which gets their parts straight from hotbodies for their car kits. I could go through every rear hub I have for the car but I'm not that bored so I will just go with the alum for now and call it a day. Maybe next weekend I'll go through all of my rear hubs if the kids don't bother me too much.

I am using the alum rear hub..but still gives me different reading from left to right... me too would like to know what is wrong... I've even changed the inner and outer suspension shaft and the arms but still no luck... Maybe Hotbodies should explain this problem...

I figured it's in the hubs because my buddy who runs TOP USA uses hot bodies rear hubs on the top car and he has the same issues with rear toe. I can't see the TOP chassis being wrong as well. I know that they went to the Tamiya alum rear hubs and he said that solved their problem. We'll see what happens when I get the alum pieces.

This is good to know. I already swapped the rear hub and still off by a mill. I was about to by a rear hinge pin block but I will hold off now. I think I'm gonna get a set of the aluminium hubs after Clint gets his in and confirms that the issue is resolved.

I just found another solution and it's cheaper than buying the alum parts. I will see if it works this weekend along with the alum rear hubs.

I was sitting right next to the hotbodies team at the reedy and the fix they do isn't something that's gonna work for me so I'm looking at other methods. I will keep everyone posted. This weekends race should be a good one.
