How do you check camber?

To check camber, make sure the vehicle is parked on level ground. If not, factor the ground slope into the camber reading. Then place a straight edge across the wheel (use the inner lip if the outer is nicked or uneven) and use an angle finder to reveal camber.

How do you adjust the toe on a Traxxas Slash?

To adjust the toe setting on your model: Set the steering trim on the transmitter to neutral, and ensure that the steering servo is centered at its neutral point. Now adjust your steering turnbuckles so that both wheels are pointing straight ahead and are parallel to each other (0 degrees toe-in).

How do I adjust the camber gain on a Traxxas 4×4?

How do I measure camber with a turnbuckle wrench?

A turnbuckle wrench is included with all turnbuckle-equipped models. The camber links are oriented so that turning the turnbuckles toward the front of the model will lengthen them (and vice versa). The groove indicates the side of the turnbuckle with left-hand threads. You can measure camber with an angle-finding app (inclinometer) on your phone.

What is “camber” in a car?

The term “camber” refers to the angle of the wheels relative to the driving surface, as viewed head-on and measured in degrees. If a wheel leans toward the chassis, it has negative camber. If a wheel leans away from the chassis, it has positive camber. And if the wheel is perfectly vertical, it has zero camber.

How do you shorten a camber link on a boat?

The camber link is a turnbuckle, and depending on the direction you turn it, the turnbuckle will thread more deeply into the rod ends to shorten the camber link, or thread itself out of the rod ends to lengthen the link. A turnbuckle wrench is included with all turnbuckle-equipped models.
