    Jato 3.3 rear wheel toe out/in adjustment. Is there any?

    Hey guys and gals. I am a new owner of a jato 3.3. The car is older and I know practically nothing about it. I am new to the nitro cars. I did not purchase this car. It was more of a rescue. I need to know if there is a way to change/correct the toe out/in on the rear tires. I have completely disassembled this vehicle and cleaned and degreased it down to the last screw. I saw nothing on changing the toe angle on the rear tires. Any help is appreciated!

    From the manual which you can download using the Support button above (as well as exploded views):

    The toe angle of the rear can be adjusted by changing the rear aluminum tie bar. The factory tie bar provides 4-degrees of toe in for each rear wheel. Toe can be changed to 3 or 5-degrees by installing optional tie bars (sold separately).

    I have the manual and I dont remember seeing anything on rear toe adjustment. Only the camber adjustment. I will however look into it again. Thanks!

    Ok so as I understand it the aluminum bar that the suspension arms attach to on the rear are fixed at 4 degrees toe in. There is no way to change it unless you by the other offsets. Appreciate the help!

    Yep. I bought the optional ones to run 3 degree on mine many years ago.
