    Alignment Specs

    What type of alignment specs are you guys running? I currently only have the rear protrack kit installed along with STRC -1* Toe-In hubs and here is what I have. I would like to know yours.

    Front - Stock Arms
    -4* Camber
    1/8" Total Toe-in (1/16" per side)

    Rear - Protrack Arms w/STRC -1* Toe-in Hubs
    0* Camber
    1/8 Total Toe-in

    Looking for to see how the front will change w/the protrack arms installed.

    Here's how mine is currently setup.

    Front Stock Style RPM Arms
    -1.5 Camber
    0 to 1/16" Toe Out

    Rear Stock Style RPM Arms
    -1.5 Camber
    1.5 Toe In aluminum 4 Tec carriers

    Toe out in the front will help turning into corners better. Straight or toe in for the front will help in high speed straight line stability. Toe in for the rear makes it track straight when on the throttle (rear end won't walk out side to side as much). -4 on the front camber sounds a little high. Try dropping it to about -2.

    Thanks CarGuy. I've only had this truck for 2 weeks but I haven't changed anything up front. I'm gonna throw the proline front arms on and toe it out as you mentioned.

    I've been thinking about adding the protrac kit but haven't gotten around to it. Let us know how it goes.

    Install is easy. I did it already one the pede. It's all pretty straight forward. These trucks are not hard to work on IMO.

    Qykslvr,
    Yes you need longer toe and camber rods as well as 4 front rims/tires. Add (but not needed for the install) Proline Powerstrokes shocks and your in business.

    Okay I was just making sure for myself, and that you knew also. Powerstrokes are nice and Ive seen them in person, but for the price and getting some big bores with TiNi shafts free Ill stick with them for now, they just need some heavier oil for some reason, Ive always found trx shocks do.
