So I am replacing both of the tie rods and heim joints on my 2011 Top Kart due to damage. Question is how do I adjust them to set the wheels pointing in the right direction and do they need to be dead straight or toe in or out?
You will need a tool to align the wheels by adjusting the tie rods. I’m not sure if this is the only one, but I use the Sniper Laser V2 Alignment tool: Sniper Americas
If you don’t know what toe setting to run, you can check the recommendations of the chassis manufacturer or search the forum.
the info from your manufacturer here …
The standard setting for toe on the Top Kart chassis is overall 2-3mm toe out (1 – 1.5mm per side).
some videos that may help you .
i dont have the lazer snipers allighment tool till now , so when im trying to set my toe i use a pair of discs for toe allighment that is available as a karting tool .
something like those cometkart have .
hope that help you a bit .
Thanks, that’s perfect!
