    It has enough torque, but there are other factors that may keep it from turning while "standing still." Plastic bends, so if you have a stock clod or stock linkages, etc. they will probably give before the tires turn. Also it depends on if you are using 4 wheel steer or 2 wheel steer, one or two servo's, etc.

    what do I need to make the tires turn without stress on the linkage? I would like just 2wd up front. what do I need to buy to do this and is it easy to disengage the rear steering?

    Can't say it'll be any better than stock, firmer sure. If you want tighter turns, trim your knuckles.

    4 wheel steering is going to be tighter than 2 wheel. The clod is only 2 wheel in the direction you drive. Any servo with 150 oz is going to be good enough to steer 4 wheels or 2.
