Default Front toe and camber setting?

If I use the recommended turnbuckle lengths, my YXL is very asymmetric with a lot of toe-out. What do you recommend for toe and camber settings? Ballpark answers are good enough for me, I.e., "some visible toe in, maybe a couple degrees of positive camber"

Thanks!

3° camber(top in) and 1-3° TOE IN.

Toe out will influence how quickly the car turns in. Toe in will give it greater straight line stability.

Camber shouldn't ever be positive, or they've really screwed up the camber gain geometry. You could even start at zero and it should gain negative camber as the suspension goes through its travel because of the shorter length of the top turnbuckles.

I was curious what the setting were when I built mine from the manual. Seeing I had a station, thought I would throw it on.

Front Toe -1
Front Camber -2 to -3

Rear was all Zero

Thanks. appreciate the input. I couldn't remember the sign convention for camber so apologies for my poor camber example.

Can you cycle the suspension with that thing, Maxxpain?

Rear better be all zero, being a straight axle.

Yes, it has little ball bearings as wheels. You see it change as ride height changes.

What does that set up cost? All I have is RPM plastic camber and toe guages. Not that I need it being a basher just curious.

I bought it years ago, I think everything there is like $275 to 300. I kept buying parts to it as I bought cars. I can do on road and off road. 1/10 and 1/8th

Exact one like maxxpain's on rctech for $200. I don't think I can link it without bending RCC rules

From what I can tell., the camber stays about the same threw most the cycle. There is some deflection in the suspension.

That's awesome. The stock settings are actually pretty spot on.

Now use a LONG camber link and cycle it again, see how it changes the camber through the suspension travel. Another fun test is to roll the chassis side to side and watch how far the camber changes between short and long camber links
