For those braces I’d recommend using one that’s the same width as your servo mount. Mine are 67mm since I’m running the tgh dsm.

I’ve never done 4 wheel steering before but 4 link with a servo on axle for the rear is probably your best bet. If you chassis mount the rear servo you’ll need another pan hard mount back there at which point you may need to drill new holes in the rails and potentially a slot like you see up front. This may be more trouble than it’s worth to go chassis mounted in the rear.

I spent some quality time with the sherpa this past weekend and had a lot of fun wheeling it. Visited Logandale trails out in valley of fire for the final day of scale nationals to check out some action and get some wheeling in.

The event looked like a blast, the class 3 courses were wicked and the king of Logandale race was a doozy. I wish I could have spent more of the weekend out there, but weíll be back out there soon as the final round of the local comps is out there. Thinking about actually competing in that one but weíll see how it plays out.

Anyway, hereís a video of a lot of Sherpa action and a few clips from when I met up with others at the event. Itís a beautiful space out there, canít wait to get back.

Wanted to bump this back up, just found it as I am looking at the Sherpa chassis myself for a new C2. Great build thread thank you.

What link lengths did you get from Hardcore RC for wheelbase? Since it is a mix of axles? What front link set & rear link set if I may ask. Thank you again!

I canít remember tbh, a lot of these rigs of mine end up with a mixed bag of links. If you hit up Tom at TnT or Lance/Dean with hardcore and tell them your specific chassis, axle, and skid set up theyíll be able to get you sorted out.
