    How to reset the camber and toe

    I recently finished building a Traxxas Rally all stock parts. I'm using a std VXL system.

    I can't find anywhere in the online PDF (because I built it from parts I bought off eBay) where it says how to reset the ball pin screws in the carriers to get stock toe and camber.

    I've so far just eyeballed it equalizing the amount of turns I do on both sides and gauging my angles by the contact patch.

    Please help.

    Have you looked through the PDF manual?
    There may not be turn counts and such but I think there are degree's listed.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Yeah, as I said I can't find it in the PDF. Yes it says the angles but without a gauge that's kinda hard to eyeball. I've ran it a few times and my eyeballs have not let me down.

    I have a MERV also and it's a simple turn count to reset, makes it easy.

    The turn count should be the same... other than arm length and tire size the two are the same RC.

    I have always turned the pillow balls to my own taste. I started with turning them in until you just can't see the thread anymore and go from there to get the preferred camber and toe in/out. Since I drive more in hard surface, I have used less toe in/out to make it drive more stable in a straight line.
    Nobody is born with experience.

    Not even close, very far from the revo set up, that's what I tried first and the angles were waaaaaaay off.

    Surprised me too. Especially how far off. Stock shock rods n all, and with the Revo install process, it left me with crazy toe out and insane camber.
