How Do You Measure Toe for RC Car?

When it comes to RC cars, it’s all about having the right setup for the best performance. One of the most important aspects of any RC car is its toe-in angle, which has a huge influence on how the car handles and performs.

Toe-in is the angle at which the front wheels point relative to the car’s centerline, and it needs to be set perfectly for optimal results. But how do you measure toe-in for an RC car?

Measuring toe-in on an RC car is relatively simple, but it does require some specific tools. To start, you will need a ruler or measuring tape and a protractor or angle finder. You will also need to make sure that your RC car is on a flat surface so that you can get an accurate reading.

Once you have all of your tools ready, place your ruler or measuring tape along the center line of your RC car and measure the distance between each wheel. You should then use your protractor or angle finder to measure the angle at which each wheel is pointing relative to the center line. Note down both measurements so that you can compare them later.

Now that you have both measurements recorded, it’s time to calculate your toe-in angle. To do this, simply subtract one measurement from the other and divide by two. This will give you your exact toe-in angle for your RC car.


Measuring toe-in on an RC car is not difficult as long as you have all of the necessary tools available. All you need to do is measure both wheels along the center line and then use a protractor or angle finder to calculate their angles relative to each other. Once these measurements are taken, simply subtract one from another and divide by two to get your exact toe-in angle for your RC car.
