This Seup is for 17.5 but it works very well with 10.5.

you also could have too much caster not enough rear toe or to stiff of springs. or not enough droop.

less caster will give you more initial steering and less steering coming out of the corner.

LOL it'll probably be just a LiPo update, the cyclone seems to be as good as it gets anyway, why change for changes sake?

Default rear toe

the car was abit loose tdy so I decided to chk the rear toe. I assumed it would be even 3deg to block and all Right? I was wrong is there a way to get equal toe settings? I am using bew uprights.

Check your hinge pins. When those bend a tiny bit, it throws off the toe settings for obvious reasons. There was also a small run of rear hub carriers that werent drilled quite straight. I actually use the aluminum rear hub carriers that HB offers so I never have to worry about that.

I've bent a aluminium rear hub carrier quite bad when the wheel catched a trackmarker, toeout on the rear wheels are not that good so i'm back to plastic.
I recieved my Exotek chassie today, i love the lipo fitment and the balance is spot on! However there was no antenna mounting hole and i'd like to see holes drilled for the "2 degree F/R mount" mod The chassie kit is still top notch though!
