Question Who makes the most KICK BUTT BTA?

OK I know that we all have our two cents... so sound off...

I am looking for the one of the best "behind the axle" steering set ups for my next AX10 based build. Who makes it and what is the link?

I liked CKRC's setup. No longer run a shafty but I had it on two different rigs. Little bit of work, see link below, down the page

vince, nobody makes a good one yet for an axial axle.there are some good ideas out there but not a complete pkg that works all the way around. don't waste your money. check around and do your homework. i know of one vendor working on one now, that looks great and functional, but still in prototype. hopefully soon it will be in production. good luck

I used Jetboats set up and a set of high steer knuckles. I driled out the holes on the linkage for a flanged bushing, if you don't you can't tighten the bolts all the way. the set up works fantastic, on loss of steering angle, no slop, great way to go.

ive seen the CKRC one in action, and it appeared to work well.

I got the high mount knuckles from Vanquish through RPP and made my own using the idea from the Berg guys. It works Very well right now for me but Im waiting on Crawler Design Works to release theirs.

For us running 4Link setups I think Anthony's will be the one to use.


Just my 2cents.

I'm waiting on CDW's kit too.

CKRC's looks like it would work pretty well. It doesn't really matter which one you buy, they're all going to need a little tweaking to make it work well.

Wait for the CDW, Anthony does nice design work. The rest of them that are out are pretty poor in my eyes. The Jetboat kit has tight internal corners which are lesson #1 in any design class If he fixed a few things it might be alright but I would bet the CDW will be leaps and bounds better than any currently available.

I run the Jetboat BTA and works fairly good but tends to tighten often. If I drill them out and put bushings it would help

Build your own!! It will save you a lot of money and you can make them more durable. I made a sick one for my wife's car. I hav'nt seen a better one yet. Some of my friends saw it and set there's up the same way.
