I wonder how he got steering with that car, the roll centers are super low, the front shock is placed in hole 1, and there's a very thick sway bar in the front. Do you have his setup sheet?

The roll centers are standard setting actually and the swaybar is the one that comes with the MRE, 1.4mm

Hybrid makes the blue alu piece, the rest is Tamiya Servo Saver parts.

It looks like outbound toe-in is bigger than 1', hopefully it's 1.5 or 2' outbound toe-in on upright.

doubt it... XB/D is 3 toe in anyway... why you'd want to run more i don't know.

I'm pretty sure all the cars since the MS come with 0 rear hubs anyway...

I tried running toe-in rear hubs a while ago, have to say I prefered how the car felt using the 0 hubs instead.

Running 2 innboard + 1 outboard toe inn (3 total) will have more sidebite and less forward traction than 3 innboard toe inn.

Normally, the car will feel more responsive with innboard toe inn.
Outboard toe inn will make the car very easy to drive (mild steering) works good when a one-way is used

I checked my 0' alum upright. It seems the prototype's 2 ballhead holds are in middle of 3 holds on 0' alum upright. Maybe it's something just relocate the hole?

As for outbound toe-in, I always run 1' outbound toe-in as I found it loose rear onpower quite well, compared with 0' outbound toe-in. I acturally wanna get Square's 1.5' outbound toe-in upright to see if I can get rear rotate more.

speed racing also makes the blue alum servo horn part, precisionrc has it.


They probably got steering on they car by using brakes heavy.....I always have steeering in mod due to brakes throwing weight forward

I think I just found out the difference....
The holes are in the same place, But the distance between the bearings are greater.... this will for sure put less stress on the bearings

You are right about the outboard toe, it will give more on power steering and less off power steering/initial steering.

Then I guess they're coming out with new rear axles too. So many new parts yet to be released.
