    Insane wheel problems.

    I have a friend with a 2wd slash vxl. Whenever he accelerates his rear tires go about 20 degrees toe-in. Is there anyway to fix this?

    His rear stub axle is probably bent badly

    It's normal to squat when accelerating! If he does'nt like it, stiffen up the suspension!

    I'm guessing its the axel bearings. If one of those lets loose, then the wheel will turn all sorts of crazy directions.

    Could also be a hairline crack in the axel carrier.

    Oh, 1 more thing to check.

    Due to the way the suspension works, one of the hinge pins holding the rear A arm to the transmission likes to back out.

    On that side, take the hinge pin out, and insert it from the back of the car, so its backwards compared to the other side. No more loose hinge pins.

    If that hinge pin backed out, the pin may only be holding on 1 side of the a arm, and.... you guessed it... crazy wheel angles!
