look like your pretty close.. but does look positive on the rea.r. but you got the idea now..
no no, that was my himoto like a month ago, its way different now. the tires are pretty straight (rear at least), front were never the best.

i got it with the whole pos/neg thing, im going to try it in a few mins, dont think itll matter since im running it in the snow.

thanks

OK, so now that you know about camber and what you did or need to do to adjust it, I'm pretty sure everyone here will be pleased to know your actually learning about this hobby.

As for your Himoto, don't think is not a good buggy. Learning how to setup suspension on any buggy can will make it perform like night and day, and I'm pretty sure your Himoto can perform what you want to do. It has parts and designs similar to 2 top buggys, the Kyosho & Mugen, so some of the settings from those cars may work. If your buggies rear arms are just like the pictures, then that design is so you can run long suspension down travel or droop. When the rear arms extend downwards alot, the outer arm will clear the rim and not rub, just like a Mugen MBX5R.

Thumbs up

I don't have the time, I just drive till something brakes. I also like when the motor starts and my servo's work.

i took the camber off since the only one i can get is positive. (or im doing something wrong).
READ WHAT WE ARE SAYING! You DO NOT adjust camber by altering which hole you bolt the arm to! You adjust the camber by changing the length of the arm! Your arms can already do this!

uhhhhh, yeah, i kinda already figured that out.

and xrayeddie- yes im doing this just so i can bash in the snow, i have snow 8/12 months here, gotta get used to it. i think im going to completely seal my servos and electronics off, and also run the buggy with the body on, and there shouldnt be too much snow getting inside.

"I don't have the time, I just drive till something brakes. I also like when the motor starts and my servo's work"

^^ exactly, money isint a big deal for me, i make 25$ an hour, 10 hours a day, 5 days a week and i dont have ANY bills, so thats ALL pocket money. as long as im having fun, the parts i break are worth it.

and im soon getting a proper engine mount so i can finally put my LRP .28 into my mugen buggy with my spektrum 3.0 electronics!! i was testing my electronics and my himoto set up lets me go about 50 feet away, then it stops working, but my spektrum works for like 300 feet, maybe more, i was too cold so i didnt wanna walk any further. cant wait!
