    Front axle clocked


    Evolution of my Over The Axle steering system. Works great!















    My first carnage took out all the bearings on one side, even inside the tube, and tweaked the kuckle. I installed Axial aluminum ones from STRC.







    Chassis is a narrowed Wicked Bull



    Here is how I wired my front and rear dig switches. I will post a write-up on it.



    More clearance in the rear.

      That servo mount/tie rod is cool. The servo is anchored by a short link off the horn to the axle, and the servo moves left and right as the wheels turn.

          That servo mount idea is pretty cool!
          do you have any issues with the servo flexing at full lock?
          I realise that it is a pretty beefy chunk of aluminum that you are using so I doubt it, I am thinking of other rigs that such a setup could be used on....

            I was initially concerned about that myself, but there is no deflection at all, it can handle that servo, lol.

              Nice trick on the servo mount. That is a great idea!

                i considered something like that... my only concern is the servo being exposed to more rock impact..

                i am working on a new linkage should have something accomplished tonight after soccer.

                      Re: My Berg

                      I built a Super Tuber long ago, and everyone that saw it screamed it wasn't legal, there was a whole "perception of the rules" arguement and I backed off and parted it out. I am considering building a 2.2 version of it for the Bergs. It was later deemed legal, go figure.

                          Yeah, it had rediculous breakover for a tuber. The more I look at the old pics, the more I like the idea.

                            Something occured to me the other day. They use Axial knuckles, and the shaft inputs to the spool look like Axial(I haven't test fitted the spools yet), then why wouldn't a set of custom length AX10 CVD's work?

                            I have a set on the way, gonna see what I can come up with.

                              its been done... you can drill out the stock shafts with a lathe then insert the axial shafts and pin it.
