You have to find an average and get it close.

Turn on the car and make sure your truck drives straight. Set camber, rinse and repeat if steering trim was WAY off.

I roll the car slowly and slide the camber gauge along.

Which tools would you guys recommend for this truck? Im looking for metric tools and really like the Losi set but theyre kind of short and not sure if thats good or bad. Theres also a size in there that doesnt look like ill be needing so it may be a waste of money to get the set unless all the other sizes are actually needed.

You'll need 1.5mm, 2mm, 2.5mm hex wrenches and an .050" for most pinion gears. You'll also need 7mm, 5.5mm and 5mm nut drivers. The 5mm is only for the slipper and you can use the "tamiya" wrench that's included.

Otherwise those are really all you need.

I also recommend the TLR turnbuckle wrench. It's sweet.

Losi has a good setup of tools.

I am convinced MIP has the greatest tools out there.

If you are looking for longer tips Hudy are good but I wore out my tips. Yeah it took probably 7 years but I have never worn out an MIP tip and have had them longer.

Wow i did not know that. I thought the only differance was the mount for the sway bar. So is it different in any other way other than being 2mm higher?
I put on on my truck. So now i must have 5 mm shims on it.

i like the losi hex drivers, yeah a little short and pricey, but good quality, when you break a tip off in the head of a screw with some cheap drivers, you will really wish you had some quality hex drivers....
