I can't properly figure out as per pictures or manual how to setup the rear toe? Can someone explain me how it works? Thanks!

Good point! I also checked the scews last week, because the 1.5mm Hex went a bit round, but left it for the moment.
This is a good moment to switch to some high quality 2.5*14mm torx.

Very simple. There are 3 holes on the carbon part and 3 on the alu part, just a bit offline. When using the mid position you have 2.0 toe, when using the outsider hole the toe is 2.5. I checked on the set up board, and it is very accurate.

the stock screws are 11mm in length adding the extra 2mm will give it a little more strength. I ran them all saturday night in practice and all day on sunday with no issues what so ever even after taking a few hard hits lol.

As I have 3x14mm Stainless steel screws available, I careful tapped the steering block from the 2.5mm hole to M3. Feels very solid. 14mm is just long enough.
Will try next weekend, although it is not the idea to do a real strength test and hit something.

at 14mm make sure the front axles move freely

Got the 3Racing front and rear(1deg) aluminum hubs installed on my MTs/V3 prototype , this will Work on the FFv3 and it should make it a lot stronger if not bullet proof . Using 3mm front hexes for proper track width.

With the aluminum front hubs and a 3mm hexes the width is just about 1mm wider than stock .(The aluminum front hubs make the car a little wider so I had to replace the 5mm hex with 3mm)




The MTS-V3 with the White bomber ready for this weekend’s 17.5 invitational at Valkaria Florida

Could you please post a link to the 3 racing aluminum hubs? I tried out the car today and it was amazing except I broke the front right hub.

I thinking I'm going with aluminum blocks this time. The barrier at my track is too good at destroying the plastic ones.
