So I scrapped my Rustler Dragster project and moved the equipment over to a LCG Slash 2wd. The transmission is aluminum, has the control arms mounts that seem to be kicking the rear toe alignment inward. How do I fix this, I want generally 0 degrees rear toe.

It’s the arm mounts. I know hot racing sells different mounts that have different degrees of tow. For a drag racing application, your going to be shooting for 1-.5 degree tow in. The reason being is that the force of the car trying to accelerate will actually pull it in to a true 0 degree tow angle.

I'm pretty sure toe-in points inwards, and accelerating makes it point inwards even more, so it should be toe-out if you want it to be at 0 degrees during acceleration. With RC vehicles being this small, I doubt it'd have enough play in the suspension to change the toe angles.

It’s tow in and no more than 1 degree. All the fast guys in NPRC set up rear tow around 1.5-.5 degrees for this very reason. Same thing goes for the front; 1-.5 degrees tow in. When guys are doing 1.8-1.9 seconds and 65-82 mph in 132 feet, the know a thing or 2 about suspension set up and tuning. So ima listen.
