    4PEDE Rear toe

    Are there any components out there to remove the rear toe in on my Pede? There is way too much Toe in the stock form.

    Switch around the carriers. Left to right and right to left

    Yep. It's not as noticeable I think there's still some. I've done it with both my sons trucks. On mine I run xo1 carriers so I can run either 1.5 or I think 3.5 depending on what side it's on

    I'm sorry, but this only works with the aluminium rear axle carriers (#1952X). The stock plastic carriers have 0 toe, so it doesn't make a difference interchanging them.
    The rear bulkhead has a built-in 2.5 toe-in. The aluminium carriers will add or subtract 1.5 depending on which side they are mounted, and give 1 or 4 toe-in.

    I have these aluminum carriers in the rear. Switching them around do nothing. The holes are bored exactly straight through the carrier for the pin.

    Then I'm sorry, you can't have the original Traxxas aluminium rear carriers #1952X. They are labelled L and R. Why would Traxxas label them Left and Right if they were the same?
    I have them, and it's a huge difference between 1 and 4 toe-in!

    Besides, take a look at page 22 in the Slash 4x4 Ultimate manual where it is explained:

    Yes, but I'm sure you know that those are for the XO-1 (6mm axles and 6x12x4mm bearings).

    Anyway, I can't understand why you don't see a difference with the 1952X carriers. Are they labelled L and R? Maybe Traxxas once did have alu carriers with 0 toe (old stock)? I'm puzzled...

    I have a question. I have mip axles, upgraded to revo spec diffs so I upgraded the inside drive hub to the 6mm and also went with the rustler male spline, done both those upgrades on all 4 corners.

    So that question is about the rear carriers. Im wondering about upgrading to the xo-1 carriers and to make that work add the mip outside axle end from the revo. Anyone see why that cant work?

    I changed the rear toe in with alu 1952X carriers. The L and R mark is not there for nothing, there is a difference between the angles.
    Nobody is born with experience

    My new 1952X carriers just got delivered today. When I get home, I'll check and see if they are stamped. I'll let you know.

    Your left one should be stamped on the other side. They're not stamped on both sides. Atleast my sons aren't lol.



    Here's my sons cars both running the aluminum carriers. I switched one around while the other is still the same.

    This one I have the left on the right side which will be the car on the left without the side diffusers

    This one the right is on the right side
