    ~E-Revo Rear tires pointing inwards?~

    After a few parts broke on the rear of my revo, i went ahead and got some replacement ones, repaired it, then hadn't touched it for some time due to long winter months. When i was taking it out today to get it ready for a run, i noticed that when the suspension was compressed the rear tires pointed in wards.

    Anyone have any idea on whats going on or a potential fix? Maybe i got the wrong parts? :S
    P.S. Suggestions on upgraded parts are also more than welcome!

    Are you sure you got the correct toe links for the rear?
    Have you compared the new to the old links?

    If they are the correct links you need to reset the rear toe, you do so by shorting the toe links.
    You can get both sides the same by measuring the lenghth between the rod ends making both equal.

    You can also get an RPM MonsterCamber Guage and set it with that, which is the only way to set it and have an idea of where it is set at.

    Mine are set at,
    Front-Toe Out @0.5 deg
    Rear--Toe In @1 deg.

    Set up sheet PDFs, it's from the 3.3 Revo so ignore the nitro bits.

    I believe i tossed the old arms out, but i brought the damaged ones in to a shop when i was out of town, and the worker there replaced them with ones that were supposed to be the same. Everything in the Revo is stock aside from the repairs.
    Honestly pretty new to this. Why would the toe links suddenly be out of whack like that?

    Can you measure/compare one of the rear against on of the front links, as they are the same except the hollow ball.

    Ah crap! Overlooked you mentioning me replacing the links. Sorry for the run around. I actually replaced both rear a arms. The toe links are all stock. Only other thing that was changed was the long travel things it came with from the box.

    Edit: Upon further inspection, seems my front right toe link needs replacement. Lol crap D:

    Check to make sure you have the rear pivot balls in the same location they were before. I know there are 2 mounting positions available for the rear, +10mm and +19mm. If you have the regular a arms (only one set of pivot ball mounts) then you need to buy new links most likely

    I mean the worker at the RC shop may have accidentally switched the turnbuckles with the pushrods...
