Toe in or Toe out up front for straight line performance? - santafe17 - 04-04-2017

Having trouble going straight.

SO yeah, toe in, or toe out up front?

You are on 50/50? Is this on low speed or high speed?
Toe out slightly. About 1 degs in front. Toe in or neutral in back.
Check for loose links and screws. Reduce any slop linkage from servo to steering linkage.

Toe in / toe out depends on what you are missing..

A toe in will let the car be stable on the straights, but the front with steer equally (same direction) - this is sometimes better in rwd to make the front grip better.

A toe out will let the car be loose but would react faster - also the steering will introduce ackerman that will allow the lead wheel to steer more and the follow wheel to steer less.

Thanks fellas. I adjusted it again and is now much better. Toe out was definitely the way to go.
