Spotted this on tamiyaclub

Post by GRAVETXT-1 »

This is not my own work I spotted this one off hand made steering solution on tamiyaclub and thought to share it with you guys :)

Member is called MadInventor he makes his own wheels/ gearbox's/ axles out of aluminum pretty much everything he makes himself. His builds are insane.

He often replicates his work and sells it to guys on tamiyaclub.

Anyway I think its the coolest servo mount for the Clod I have seen 8)

That is cool, Nice and compact and it does not have the servo mounted up super high on the side of the axle. You going to get one?

Do you have a link to the thread on Tamiya club?

Hmmm yes very nice indeed, looks great all cleanly tucked up in there.

On ebay a guy sells something similar, I got one and I love it but would prefer the one you linked over it!

Cool glad you guys like the design. If need be you could spray or powder coat the mounts red to match the red plastic of the original Clod or blue for the Super Clod.

MadInventor told me in the next week he will post full diagrams/ dimensions done on computer of the servo mount so keep your eyes peeled on the link KONG posted :)
