    I use an app called RC workbench. I can't find it anymore but it is based on the book called xxx mains chassis tuning guide.
    This will TOTALLY work, saw a guy on YouTube do it

    It has been very useful to me. Its a PDF file I downloaded a while back. Tried to find op to give credit but couldn't find. Tried to use drop box to host the file so all could d/l but couldn't get it to work either. If anyone knows a good free host site I can put it on that allows d/l for you all, let me know.

    Your welcome!

    Question for anyone, if doing high speed runs as straight as possible, do you try to add toe in or out to the front wheels assuming i have toe out on my rears. I have heard toe out from people doing the same thing, but this guide says toe in?

    Toe in on rear makes truck more stable that's why Trx makes em that way. I assume and according to guide it will make front more stable. I know G-pede has his at 0 and mine is to. I don't reach his speeds but at my speed its pretty stable and straight. I know there is a bit of play on our trucks so if anything 1 or maybe even 2 in wouldnt be bad. That way if rolling tries to spread apart they would be at 0 and if rolling pushes them in then you'd only be at 3-4 in which I don't think is all that much. If anything you may encounter slower speed from drag. I wonder how significant it would be though.

    My toe in is at 1.5 degrees because I have reversed my aluminum axle carriers. Stock is 2.5 degrees and the aluminum carriers are 4.0 degrees when installed the normal way.

    My bad maybe it was someone else that told me 0 on front. Sorry for quoting you wrong.

    The front is at 0, I thought you meant the rear.

    Oh okay sweet, I hate quoting ppl wrong. Don't get me wrong, it happens in my forgetful old age, you'll be here one day haha. There is still a little play up there right? A degree or two?

    Idk the website unfortunately, when I saw it the first time, I just screen shot it. I Google searched last 10min or so and couldnt find it. Click on pic to go full screen, then right click or long press or click 3 dots in right hand corner(if there is) what ever option works and then hit save attachment.
