Default measure toe in/out independently

The rpm toe gauge does not measure the right toe or left toe independently. How to measure the left and right toe in/out of 1/10 truck/buggy independently?

Yo ayi balls! Besides, you want both wheels to be equal in measure.

Put your car on the floor with the tires against the baseboard and use your camber gauge horizontally.

It's easy.

Put the front of both wheels against a wall so both wheels are touching the wall at the same time.

Take the RPM Camber gauge and hold it up against the wall to measure the angle the wheel is at. Do the same for the other wheel. Now you've set the toe equally on both sides.

PS. It helps to have your radio on and the steering centered.

No problem. I'm glad I saw that because I forgot to check my toe in.
