Take a look at this thread!

Default Wheel Adjustments

I have been trying to get my wheels back to how they were when I first got the truck. I upgraded to the titanium turnbuckles so I had to put ALL new ball cups onto the titanium turnbuckles. Pain in the butt...yes it was. The rear wheels look the worse. I have tried to adjust them as much as I can but cannot get them right. The front ones are alright but I would like to get them as straight as I can but if they have a little toe in I am fine with that. What turnbuckles do I adjust for the front to look normal and how do I make the rear wheels look normal as well? Thanks...

You need to adjust the upper links in the front. There should be plenty of thread to get them adjusted right. Are these links for the 22T?

I can't tell you which way to turn them as I don't know you you pu them on but this is pretty easy to adjust with a turnbuckle tool.

It also helps if you use some type of grease on the threads when you assembly them so they turn easier for adjusting. Just about any grease will work. Black grease, green grease, some use wax or chapstick. All get the job done and make adjusting much easier.

Here is a little video on adjusting camber and ride height.

Personally, get the kit!!! Trust me!!! I bought the RTR because I didn't feel like building it. Just pure laziness. Yes the RTR is cheaper in the beginning, but I have already had to spend 60 dollars on a new servo because I stripped the stock servo gears. I am already looking at buying a new esc which will cost me 150 dollars or more. New motor over the summer which will cost me about 100 dollars or more. Had to buy new tires which cost me about 80 dollars because I purchased them unmounted. I will have spend about 310 dollars not including the tires. Don't forget a new radio but you can find the under 50 dollars on ebay including the receiver and yes I am talking about one with 2.4ghz technology. So in my opinion, buy a kit and build it yourself so you can learn about the truck and how parts go together and as well as making it to fit YOUR racing style and not the general public. One thing I learned in my years is that everyone has a slightly different setup and style of driving and you should make yours to fit your driving preference. Hope this helps

So not the ones that connect to the servo for the steering? What about the ones in the back of the truck?

They all adjust the same. The steering links you HAVE to make sure they are the SAME LENGTH. Adjust them equally. The camber links you can just adjust to get the camber right and they should be the same length when you are done but the steering links you want to make sure they start the same length and adjust equally so you get the same steering left and right.

Thank you very much!!! I will get to that right now. Another problem I am having is the rear wheels. The motor is powering the wheels but only one. The other is just spinning but not like the other one. The video is below:

Pull the tires off. Make sure the pin holding the hex is still there and not broken. Then check both CV joints and make sure the pins all all the way in and not hitting the hubs. Could be the diff as well.

Depends on what is broken and if you want to go with a gear diff or a ball diff.
