Default 12th scale setup

How in the world do you measure the adjustments you make to the front end of a 12th scale. Like Toe?????????? I'm sort of new to 12th and I took apart the front end of my Gen-X and cant seem to find a good way to make measurements

Any helpful tips or tools? My 10th stuff isn't helping much

Niftech makes a tool that measures front toe, I use a caliper and measure across the fronts then the rears of the front rims to get an idea of toe, or just use the Mk.1 Eyeball. For camber, I use an RPM camber gauge with a little notch filed in it to clear the wheel nut. Ride height I use the standard stepped ride height gauge that just about everyone makes.

What's up with Niftech, I tried to order from them but never got a call back. What do I have to do to get this toe gauge?

The Niftech tool is a great piece and worth the effort to obtain. The Niftech website says to email them and they will contact you; they will but it takes a while. The best way is to just call them. Do it when you have lots of time

I'm using a unity tools setup board for all my cars, works great for Touring, Pro10 and 1/12th.
