    i have the cpe terminator chassis.....i can't seem to figure out the best way to mount the steering servo and then the linkage...i bought this as a kit so i am trying to use the behind the axle steering configuration...can a few of you post some close up shot of your steering so i can figure out how to do mine.


    thanks!!

    Behind the axle steering

    It's a little tricky to get throw equal to both wheels, I know I am gonna take some flack for this but I took a chance with no steering servo and run a good titanium gear servo, the reward of better steering response out ways tearing up the servo, knock on wood it is lasting just fine.

    servo saver

    i am guessing you meant to say no servo saver.....what does the piece look like that you are using? do you have a part name or number?

    Servo in front

    If you pm me I can email you the pics for behind the steering I am to new here to post pics, ya I meant no servo saver I ran the front steering it works out well also a heck a lot easier to setup at least for me I just wen t back to behind the steering I kept bending the the piece that connects both hubs together, my buddy tracked down a titanium piece for me works real good.

    Behind the axle

    What is the main problem you are having with behind the axle steering?

    motor

    It seems like the motor gets in the way...the servo saver seems to hit the motor and limit travel...maybe i need to extend connecting link so that i can puut my servo horn on at a different angle

    Servo saver

    I will email you picks in the morning I don't run a servo saver but if I recall my buddy still does and the servo saver is at angle, the angle is toward the passenger Side of the truck, no servo saver is a chance but it makes life a lot easier for the linkage and better steering response I ran a hit 645 standard metal gear servo with no servo saver, I went to the front and didn't run a servo saver and the servo didn't last long, went to a titanium gear servo moved it back to the behind the axle no servo saver and I had to cut my steering rate down to 80 percent so the tires wouldn't grab the lower links

    I had to play with mine with spacers behind the servo ears to get it to clear on one of my trucks. On my other truck I used the servo from CPE and everthing was perfect. It may be a matter of your servo spacing.
