Default Wheel Alignment

Fellas,

What's a good way to set up the wheel alignment on a Losi XXX4? Are there some good, inexpensive tools? Or do you just eyeball it?


Thanks,


Jack

RPM's Camber Gauge is good - pretty much everything else you can eyeball or judge with a steel rule.

Default Wheel Alignment

Thanks Sosidge. I made a setup board to check toe-in/out and just used a small drafting square to set the camber. If my setup doesn't seem to work, I'll give your suggestion a try.

Thanks again.

alignment check

Should toe/camber/caster be set with the cars wheels in the air or on the bench under its own weight?

(I've only experience with automobiles, which are set in the air)

Thanks

I do it under load - there's more play and flex in a toy car than in a real car.
