My Setup Station is quite precision, but goniometer does not precision. Now I completely disassembled rear of my 8ight-t and have done measurement of all angles with use of digital caliper and trigonometry.

I got next results:

LOSA1755 - Adjustable Rear Hinge Pin Brace W/Inserts: 8B/8T

that is the correct. the off decimal place is probley due to not being true center to center.

that is a chart that he made himself with measureing the inserts with a caliper. the real measurements start with 0 inserts in the front and rear which give you 2 anti/3 toe then adjust from there.

Your servo saver adjuster nut may have backed out. It might be riding on the chassis now which won't let the steering posts turn. Remove the steering assembly, apply a small amount of loctite to the threads of the post, move the nut up a short ways, wipe off the excess loctite, and re-assemble. That should fix you up.

Can you provide a part number from your manual. Or go to Losi.com and provide the part numbers. Not quite sure what you are referring to.

About toe-in I'm fully confident, I measured it twice and got the same results. You can take stock rear brace and adjustable rear brace with 0.5 insert in and you will get perfect alignment between holes for hinge pins. Anti-squat is not so precision, it's depends from accuracy of plastic bulkhead. I got different measurements for left and right sides. So it's average numbers. For stock rear braces I got next results: toe-in 1.97 degree and anti-squat 3.15 degree.

Also, adjustable rear braces lift up hinge pins about 1mm relative to stock rear braces.

Have you tried adjusting the electric motors/rubber wheel mount in the starter box? It can be moved around to get that perfect alignment. Or tell us why it's not working.
