This is a RPM Toe-In Gauge, and is intended for use with 1/10 and 1/8 on and off road vehicles. If you are a hobbyist that enjoys R/C vehicles or an all out R/C racer or anywhere in between, this tool is a must for your toolbox! This toe-in gauge allows you to do trackside checks of the toe angles without removing the wheels! This gauge checks toe through the simple method of comparing the width of the wheels at the rear of the tire to the width of the wheels at the front of the tire! This gauge is accurate to within one half of a degree per side and closer, and can also be used to check legal width of off-road buggies and trucks. The gauge comes with a second thumbscrew hole to check narrower vehicles such as sedans as well.

this is a waste of $$$. don't bother, save up for the hudy system.
Biggest piece of junk. Doesn't work. Waste of money.
This is not a tool for someone who is looking for accuracy especially the on-road guys. I use it on my 1/10 scale off-road stuff and I have to fight with it every time because it slips or something else moves. It is also hard to see the lines that tells you how many degrees you are at. I have been contemplating trying to add some white-out or something to those lines to help me see them better. I have not priced the Hudy system but I would definitely recommend looking at something better before buying this system.
waste of money! at least dont work for me!
not accurate or even easy to use! i can adjust the toe much easier without using anything!
if you need one go for hudy setup system
If your on a budget get this guage. I wouldnt use it for on-road. I had this for 20 years then I got a Hudy for my 1/8th scale buggy.Was about 2 degrees off not bad really considering rims could have been warped,etc.. If your a hardcore racer get the hudy.
If you are running a high precision on road car this is not the best tool for perfect alignment, however if you are running off road and don't want to drag around a bunch of stuff this works very well for a check at the track, been using it for 15 years. put a touch of grease between the 2 rails so it slides easily and set the tension as you like.
I like it.
Easy and quick to use. Good precision.
You need that in your toolbox !
Read the instructions to know how to use it.
