Traxxas 1/16 E-Revo

Hello everyone i was wondering if this is proper for the mini e-revo.

Can the toe links be adjusted? The tires are really pointed towards the body. When i drive it it looks broken. Drive it forward it goes straight, go in reverse and it will back up at a angle because one of the rear tires are toed in more than the other. Are the traxxas aluminum toe links adjustable?

well, as odd as it sounds they are supposed to be angled in a lot, and i don't think they are adjustable.

Toe is not directly adjustable or separately adjustable. Toe is affected by the camber adjustment to some extent. Camber is the angle the wheel makes with teh vertical. These are set to have neg 1degree camber which means looking at the tire from the bacl, it should lean in toward the chassis 1degree. If you have a manual, its covered on pg22. If you don't have one, here's link to it -

Yours looks normal to me. I haven't seen anyone offereing adj toe links for the mervo.

If you adjust the camber it really helps out with going straight. The rear wheels really needed it.

I need to adjust mine - you can see they are not even from one side to the other. Looks like the right rear has too much toe.

actually i don't really understand what's the problem?

take the key and turn pivot balls until you get what you want

i have a gpm turnbuckles and pushrods. steel and aluminum ones (steel is more durable). everything is adjustable.

but i don't need to adjust them - i can make the wheels stand straight only by screwing pivot balls into a-arms (that's why stock ones are non-adjustable)

Steal TB's are more durable but with the power that the e-revo puts out you will still bend them. Once that happens there is no turning back.

As far as your toe problem. (tough actin tinactin) J/K. I hate the way that it looks. Not going to argue whether or not the car needs it or not. But, I have mine straightened out a whole lot more than stock. Using the GPM TB's myself as well. If you want to get rid of it all together go to your local hardware store and just get some long stainless steel screws and cut them down and make your own. That is my next step when they bend too much.

BTW,You will have to have to use the ends from the GPM TB's in order to use the method I mentioned. I did this with my mini-t and they turned out to last longer than my titanium turnbuckles.
