That's the best thing about the great hobbie of our's every rig run's diffrent, I think my are pretty close to parallel, Last night after I finish take the pics took the rig out to me little man made brick course and it ran alot better than befor my angel of twist befor the truck flipped over was great, gotta get some vid of the rig, also did the around the tree it's a little thing I do where I climb a tree with the rig and just drive around it while keeping the chassis touching the tree I guess you can call it a super sharp turn lololol. I'll try to post up some vids. of all this, this weekend.

I'll try to explain things somewhat, as Mini's(and mine) steering are close as far as setup is. When running a hi-steer knuckle, the tie rod is closer to the servo, which doesn't leave any room to mount the horn pointing down. This could be changed by using a bent tie rod, and mounting the draglink under the knuckle, but you lose some clearance doing that. Notice how close the tie rod is to the pumpkin, actually above and behind the outer edge of it. This offers some protection for the tie rod, and keeps things tight. Now to the drag link. Obviously, the top of the drag link will hit rocks first, which is the worst part of the setup, but the angle of the drag link gets lower as turning increases, because the servo horn is moving down as it's turning. Making up strong drag links is key to this setup, because it takes more abuse, but it does offer some good clearance when crawling.

Yea, those gears help alot, plus, you could put the pinion in a cordless drill, and scratch the dog's butt with it.

I run the drill slow, so I don't "tear" down the dog's rear. LOL Those gears help good on climbs and turning, you'll like em.

Yea looking foward to putting it on can't wait. Hopefully if it would stop raining down here I might be able to take it out on saturday for a min and try it out. Or go to the back yard to my brick course I made lolol. It sucks cause my rig has so much power it pulls the bricks so I have to stack them in a certain way lol, we'll see.

Well installed the the new bevel Gear in the rear and all I have to say is holy climb power lol. I did not loose too much wheel speed eaither gotta love brushless. Gonna try to have some video up of the rig in action.

Also have to say big up's to axail on making some solid stuff when I removed the bevel gear from that rear that thing still looked brand new, all the teeth were still perfect.

Wel got some goodies in starting with a new front 4 link plate. Found a machine shop down here with a flow jet machine and got it done.
Installed and found a slight problem with the size I had given the guy, since and running high steering knuckel was hitting the knuckels so had to do a little fab work and now works perfect, and did not loose and turnning at all.

Next I installed the servo guard love it, had noticed a couple of nice dings on the plastic part of the servo and really did not feel like spending another 150.00 on a servo .

After installing the front new 4 link and servo guard the rig felt really stiff so removed the strc font plate and mounted the reciver on the space next to the servo and mounted the ESC inside the chassis toward the front huge diffrence right away. I did a little foam tunning cause my front foam was just way too soft I think it's the summer weather down here taking effect so went a little stiffer with some cuts and shaving on the foam got it to my liking also adjusted the springs to bring my COG down.

Did a couple of torque twist run's cause noticed like a week or two back the front of the chassis was coming up, well all gone and works great now.

Here are the pics of the mods enjoy.

Looks good Mini. Could you lower the plate even more by cutting down the plastic risers on the axle, so the plate nearly touches the top of the axle? If your servo throw will allow, you might want to try lowering the link on the horn one hole also, will give more torque and reduce the drag link angle.
