Cher, you looking to do 4 wheel steering? Also, just 4 wheel steering or crab walk it too?

If you want just the steering, it will cost you one extra servo and a splitter. There are 2 types of splitters: both servos go the same direction, and servos go opposite directions (has an internal POT with adjustement).

It shouldn't cost you more than $35 for everything.

Check out mudcow.com. He shows how to make some mounts and they are pretty straight forward. I made two recently and they work great.

I do recomend upgradeing to a 3 or 4 channel radio down the road though... because 4 wheel steering at speed make you filp, but at slow makes you more manuverable.... ans crab steering is just plain fun

i was using dual servos, found 2 fatubas wud crab along but 1 fatuba and 1 hitec servo turned perfectly, they must have opposite directions to each other.
tweaked racing tube frame.
TTR front steering/ locked rear.
Novak Super Duty XR.
alloy rear gearset.
water tight electrics.
stock pinions and speed gems.

I run ESP's dual servo steering on my one truck, it mounts 1 servo on each axle. For just 4 wheel steer you just use a Y connector on the servo wires to crab walk you need a 3 channel radio and set it up with a channel for the front and one for the back. I ran a 3 channel for a while, I didnt like it. To much going on at the same time.
