    You can eyeball it but why? When you could just buy one of these and be right on the money all the time.

    Does anyone of you could please feed me back about the m-racingteam products ? Are them really precise and helpful or are them a waste of money ?

    This is the tool to specifically designed for the revo to make your adjustments. Sorry, couldn't resist the sarcasm.




    If you have money to blow get the pricey setup. Otherwise the RPM Monster Camber Gauge works well for both camber and toe.

    I've ordered few days ago the RPM Monster camber gauge, are you sure it is worth also to measure the toe ?

    Thanks for the hint,

    these " how to " toe instructions are not the clearest I've ever read in my life but I'll work on that to get a clue.

    """ To use the RPM Monster Camber Gauge to check toe angles, all you have to do is have a 2" x 4" block of wood or other square object handy to rest your wheels against (be sure that there is clearance around the bumper and skid plate areas in the wood). """

    I had to re-read it a couple of times to picture what they're trying to say and now I got it all figured out.

    __________ = block of wood
    ()------() = front wheels


    Hope this helps give you the visual. You use the block of wood, or other, and place it right up to both wheels. Basically you use the block as your table reference compared to doing camber off of a table. That make sense?

    The guy who wrote those RPM instructions was almost for certain under the effect of a long & hard day of differencials lubrication, he was too tired to shape what himself really meant.

    In addition I'm definitely not a mothertongue but 2" x 4" seems closer to a smaller basement under the wheel, anyway he didn't explain how to read the toe measurement on the gauge and how to use it....

    something like that

    where the = is supposed to be the wood cube, perhaps

    I purchased the M racing product. It cost me 90 bucks. Its not a lot of money. It measures caster, camber, toe, steeirng symetry. I use it everytime I take my revo out. I set it before and check it again after to see if I did any damage to the suspension. You could buy the RPM product, but once you use this setup you will ask yourself why you wasted the money on the RPM gauge.
