Default Rear toe-in on brand new TC3?

I just bought a brand new TC3 and when I was putting on the rear control arms I noticed that the hinge pins were forced outward in the back. Now the car complete has a bit of toe-in at the back. I quadruple checked the instrucktions and I know I used the right parts and everything was put on correctly, so is it supposed to be that way? Here is a pic, sorry about the quality.

yeah thats right

if you also want to know how to change it you can buy the optional arm mounts or use an extra of the front arm mount(stock)

Ok, next question...is this toe-in ok for drifting? I read in another thread that closest to 0 toe is best for drifting. I have all the optional arm mounts, should I swap it out?

Thanks again for the help...newbie in progress

Rear toe-in will make the car more stable, it maybe better with out it for drifting. I suggest you try drifting with it before you set it to 0. If the back doesn't flick out like you would like it to then set it 0.

yea the set-up is all depending on the driver and what the driver is running (what differentials, how much traction, wieght ratio, motor, etc)

you have to know what you want in order to get what you need

Ok, I got my Yokomo drifting tires yesterday and it drifts WAY too easy...almost too much that is is impossible to control. Now I have a Trinity 19T motor and an intellispeed mild/mod 16t ESC. is my motor too fast for drifting? I've read that stock motors are best, but being the newb I am I thought I'd check with you pros
