Default On-Road Mini-8ight.

I'm setting up my mini-8ight for on-road, I will be running 1/10 26mm, 24mm TC wheels and tires.

My question to you guys is how should I run the rear toe in, rear camber, front toe-out if needed, and front camber. Right now I'm running 2.5 toe in on the rear with 1 degree camber, and the front I run 1 degree of camber and 0 toe out.

Thanks guys for your help.

Really? 107 views and nobody can help me out with what are the standard on-road set up would be for front and rear toe, toe out and camber? I'm only asking because I have no on-road car experience, and since I prefer to run my mini 8ight on road I need some help here.

The long of the short is nobody knows, the questions your asking are very dependant on the car. And mini 8ight on road racing doesn't really exist.

And most of the 107 people would be wondering why you didn't post in the mini8 thread in the mini/micro sub forum?

Because I came to where the real on road guys are. Let me re-phrase my question. Not to many people there race there mini 8ight onroad. How would lets say a 1/10 TC come as far as camber, toe in, toe out.


I just want to know how your TC cars come stock so I can try and replicate that as a starting point.

Here is where I'm at.

Rear. 2.5 degrees toe in and 1 degree camber.
Front. 1 degree toe out and 1 degree camber.

You are in the ballpark...
If anything maybe a bit more rr camber
