Default Rear Toe RC10 GT???

hey guys

question about the rear toe

the factory team comes with 3 deg. rear toe arm mounts and 1.5 deg. rear hub carriers

is this giving the truck 4.5 deg. rear toe???

if so that is crazy and explains my on-power puch through the turns

i think 3 deg. of toe is plenty but do they make a 1.5 rar arm mount

basically how do i make the rear have 3 deg of toe in???

thanks,
Chris08527

Get 0 degree rear hub carriers. Someone explained more at the other forum you posted at.

on my GT I sprang for the RPM carriers. they take a bigger bearing, so they are a heck of alot more durable. expensive, yes, but they last forever if you clean them out.

I believe they are 0 degree

Buy Team Losi carriers for the XXX-t, it comes in 0 degrees. Racer's Edge also makes some for the B4/T4 with the vertical ball stud for the camber link.

ok boys,

still got that horrible on-power push, but at least i know why now and hopefully you guys can help me out again . . .LOL

pretty much what is happening is when i am on power are the weight is transfering to the rear and lifting the front that is why i have no steering

this is what i have now for shock wt oil and springs 30wt. all the way around and red in the front and green in the rear

what should i do with the rear to stiffen it up, thicker oil, harder spring . . .both????

thanks,
Chris08527

Alot of guys use shock limiting to help turning. If you limit the front shocks, it doesn't let the inside tire travel so far down and helps keep more weight on the front tires. I've really not gotten my gt to turn like I want it to on a hard track, kind of dusty track. Letting off the gas early, then driving thru the corner under controlled power helps the best. That and the right tires. My goal is to get my gt to turn on the hard/slick track as well as it does at the loamy tracks.

reds are way to stiff for the front.

The best thing to use for limiters are the little white plastic spacers that come in shock rebuild kits. They are like a 1/16 inch thick. Use two of em in the front. They go inside the shock body and ride underneath the shock piston. If you use rubber orings or fuel tubing, that'll work too. But the oil will deteriorate the rubber and eventually you'll have to redo it.

These are the limiters I'm talking about: Limiters

Here's a link to a pic of where the limiters go. It's the little pic, just click on it to enlarge: Shock limiting

I use water line tubing for ice maker's. It's pretty stiff plastic.

Limiting will help your car with handling. I had a GT and had the exact same problem you did. I got into the early part of the corner fine, just coming out it pushed horribly. And just as you said you are getting too much suspension travel in the rear which is causing the front to raise when on power. A easy way to fix this would be stiffening the rear. If your surface is loamy, you probably are running step pins therefore have decent traction. So as you stiffen the car it will slightly reduce rear tracting with each adjustment. But with the result of giving you more on power steering. When the rear end goes to compress under acceleration its stiffer now keeping the chassis more flat and it should give you some steering. But LIMIT your shocks. You will find this to help. Do anything Myst says, he knows his stuff.
