You can actually just mount the LW sus hinge pin into your dremel and "drill" the hole quickly with the hinge pin at a high speed. This is what we used to do in Atlanta. The HPI composite seems to take to it pretty well, and the toe in stays a perfect zero degrees .

He He, your funny Anders!!
People wants to know what Marc did to his car...

trf racer,
If you look at all the top drivers setup's you will see they are running 3deg. toe inn. If you run Stock or 19t I would use 2deg. but in Modified 3deg. is very often used. Surikarn won the 2002 Worlds with 3.5deg.
Indoors I normally use 2.5deg toe inn.

Does that mean you are using the old suspension also for outdoors?
