Locked rear with steering

Post by nascarcoffin9 » Thu Sep 24, 2009 2:18 am

I have a clodbuster monster truck that I built from scratch and I am using the Clodbuster/TXT-1 straight axle in the rear. I would like to have rear steering again because the course we are running has tighter turns than it used to. I have the aluminum locked diff spool gear. Would I be able to use the regular cv shafts? The truck runs great I get a great whole shot with the locked rear and the truck made the old turns just fine but now everyone is wooping my butt in the turns. Need info.

THANKS
Why spend money to have an r/c truck when you could have a real one? HA yea right, r/c trucks are a blast and my r/c truck can outrun your "REAL" truck anyway.

The locked dif will hurt your turning radius as much as adding rear steer will help.
Choices: return to full open dif
Add CVD's and steering servo to the rear. (CVD's will be back in stock soon)

OK so go back to stock set up. I didn't think haveing the locked rear would help except in the straight line races. I have the CVDs that were originally in the truck when I built it. I just need to buy a new open diff gear. What would you recomend? The stock plastic or the nylon diff gear set? Thanks for the help.

All the racers I talk to use the stock plastic gears.

any word
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming to the Lord,
"Wow, What a ride!"
