Toe In

Ideally the front wheels would be held in a striaght-ahead position under all driving conditions by the suspension and steering linkages. However, on rear wheel drive vehicles the drag of the front wheels will result in them toeing out. Therefore, initially setting the front wheels to toe in will mean that when driven the wheels will tend to be aligned, although not under all driving conditions.


Toe Out

Ideally the front wheels would be held in a striaght-ahead position under all driving conditions by the suspension and steering linkages. However, on front wheel drive vehicles the torque applied to the wheels when accelerating or cruising will make them toe in. Therefore, initially setting the front wheels to toe out will mean that when driven the wheels will tend to be aligned, although not under all driving conditions.


Tracks

A number of track layouts along with circuit length.


Transmitter (TX)

The hand-held radio controller. This is the unit that sends out the commands that you input.


Two-Stroke Engine

The two stroke engine has been the main stay of powered model aircraft for a number of years due to the high power to weight ratio. The main downfall of the two-stroke engine is the high fuel consumption. The basic construction, operation and general notes on starting, running and maintaining are all included within this section.
