Hmmm camber tool. I used it once, I think the number on the corner is the degree camber. Don't know if it should be on the corner making the angle or at the top, but you set it down on a flat surface w/ the angle you want, then angle the tire to be flush w/ it. Be carefull, I used it and got numbers that were way off when I set it on the huddy. But it's better than nothing. I run w/ 4 deg camber on rears and 2 deg front. Real wierd...(the rear I mean)...I tell everyone my set-up and I get faces. Anything less and I get serious coning effect towards the outside of the wheel. Actually I ran w/ 5 deg left rear wheel and 4 deg right RW due to even at 4 I get uneven ware to this side. I guess it's becuase that's the engine side and we run counterclockwise making most of the turns right handers on the track.

Good luck, hope this helped out some. Just try to set the camber to get even ware from the foams and they will last you a decent amount.

Ok..In setting up the track on my Champ LD3...I have found that in order to make both sides(front, I havnt checked the rear yet) equal distance from chassis centerling, 100 mm, I have to set it in what appears to be an akward position....hope someone can help here ...
There is a hole in the bottom of the chassis that allows adjustment of the steering servo saver meachanism. I am using this to help figure the chassis center line. With the screw head centered inside this hole, the wheels are perfectly straight. Now, my problem is that the right (Yes, Im measuring the bottom) pivot ball must be out more than the left pivot ball. I measure the left to be out approx 5.60 mm whereas the left is out only approx 3.40 mm. And at this setting, from what I figure to be the chassis centerline, to the outside of the hub, both sides are equal, at approx 87 mm.Im wonering if I have something completely screwed up, or is the chassis itself purposely offset in some way? In thinking on things, it would appear to make sense, as the engine and pipe being the heaviest items being on the left, with the right side being"out" a lil further, this would spread more weight to the right , no? Be all end all...should I stick with what I have and not be concerned with the pivot ball distance or should I set it so the P.B are even, thereby making the hubs a different distance from centerline? Or have I figured the centerling wrong???

I would say try to make the pillow balls even. Maybe you are getting caught up in numbers too much. Don't force me to get out my calipers!!

Am I wrong here? Help the newbie please
And the tech crowd goes quiet

Not too sure about all that, my friend. Since these solutions aren't exactly the norm, I would think that the problem may lie somewhere else in the chasis setup, driver feel or the track rather than a badly designed car.

Well, all I have to say about this is that my almost RTR, w/sts engine has the mugens and serpents at my local track working hard to stay ahead

In other words I think the car has what it takes to be competitive,...of course I would like to think the driver has something to do w/ that too
