Toe In And Toe Out

on Nov 5, 2008

When seen from above, if the forward facing part of the front wheels or the rear wheels on an RC point away from the car and away from each other their position is described as toe out... Although less stable than a toe in position on straightaways, front toe out may provide for more responsive steering on turns... Rear toe out is rarely used... Most RC guys be it drifters or tourings prefer to use front toe out...



When seen from above, if the forward facing part of the front wheels or the rear wheels on an RC point in toward the car and toward each other their position is described as toe in... A slight toe in angle is commonly used to provide stability but too much toe in creates friction that slows down the car... Front toe in can help on straightaways while rear toe in slows you down on the straightaways... But rear toe in can help counteract an oversteer condition making it useful on a curvy course...

1.5 Degree Suspension Arm Holder


Most RC cars kit comes with changeable suspension arm holder... I change mine to 1.5 degree for the rear to create more toe in... Before using this setting, my car tend to oversteer a lot making it harder to control... Now setting the rear to 1.5 degree toe in, my car is very balance... No more over or understeer...
