Stand the car vertical with the radio "on" so the servo will hold the front wheels.

Use the clinometer to ensure the frame is vertical; then read the "camber" of the front wheels with it in that position. Negative will be toe-out; positive will be toe-in.

What other types of "apps" for RC are there?

Or what would you like to see get developed?

I use GearIt for TC racing.

Default iPhone only

I don't have an iPhone (on sprint network) so I tried to use a iTouch. Unfortunately it requires iPhone...

But there is one called iHandy Level (Free) and iHandy Carpenter ($$$)
