I have a flat board with a RPM camber gauge and toe gauge! BUT I don't race on road or 1/8 scale.

How does that toe gauge from RPM works actually?
I'm looking to buy it but don't really understand how it works ^^

Toe gauge How to!!!

With your RC sitting on a flat surface. Place the TG in front of the front wheels, adjust to fit a rib as needed. Same rib on both wheels makes it easy to see how your toe is.




Now move the TG to the rear of the front wheels. IF your toe is 0 degrees the TG should fit to the same rib without moving the wheels out ward or inward.



Notice mine has toe out!!!! Got to change that!!!!

Toe (top of page is front of RC) should be >>> | - | for most 2wd No toe in >> /-\ or toe out \-/

TG is made for 1/10 scale ST and Buggy so put spacers under the TG to raise it as needed for SC.

RPM has instruction on how to do Toe setup for 1/8 buggy, truggy and monster trucks.

Just managed to measure my toe! :D

Only needed a wooden plank (2-3 cm high)
A clamp to clamp the plank on a table and my RPM camber gauge.

picture:


Like you can see it's 0° toe :D

Looks GREAT!!! Does the board/plank fit in your pit box?

By the first picture you have/had a LOT of toe out.

The car wasen't against the plank
I already did 0° of toe.. Just make a picture afterwards to show you guys :)

The plank is the same lenght of the my car maybe 1cm longer at both sides. Haven't looked if it fits my pitbox but I can always lay it in the car and if I need it I'll get it..

The RPM camber gauge also works as well for toe in or out degree adjustment. You just have to lay it on its side and put a 2x4 placed up against the front tires so you have a level surface to measure from. I found it to be much easier than the RPM toe gauge and you can hit degrees with it as well, unlike the toe gauge itself. To get the most accurate readings tough you should measure with rims with no tires mounted on a flat, level surface such as a workbench. Also make sure that you trim any excess plastic on the edge of the rim as not to diturb the reading.

RPM camber gauge is a good alternative but never as precise as a setup board.

I've received my adapters for AE 1/10 offroad, I gonna try them tonight
You are absolutely correct, they are not as precise but so much easier to use than the toe gauge in my opinion. I noticed as I just read through the thread that martijn uses the same method as I. That is the poor mans substitute :D

Integy makes great parts and I know you are enjoying it, cant wait to get a pro set up station.

On a side note: have you guys ever used HopMeUp.com to order parts? They are super cheap and deliver fast. Definitely check them out when ordering parts.
