Most racing clods are 2WS. 4WS from the trucks I've seen have hindered more than helped. Though there is a team, I believe PRP, that has a modified rear steer setup that helps prevent bump-steer and such.

Now understand that I have absolutely no experience in Race Clods, but given the new 4WS on the Chevy truck line, here's an idea. How about full front steering and a limited steering ratio on the rear. Wouldn't that help you get around the corners faster without completely throwing everything out of whack?

Just a thought.

Yep! We've been doing that for quite a while now on our Team PRP Berzerker clods! :D Our entire team runs 4ws, so does everyone in our local club. We design tracks tight that require it, so we developed a steering system that would work at home and at the Worlds events.

I`m driving with 4WS steering too. Front axle steers in full angle, and rear turn just a little ... is`s all because stering link at rear is mounted near the servo twisting point ... I hope you understand what I mean :lol:

Cool and yes, I understand the mounting location. I might set this up on my son's rig if I can't slow it down with the pinions I'm installing.
