Default Rear steer on rear center VP axle

I just picked up Shane's IFS Wraith and have c-hubs and knuckles on the way and already have a servo to do rear steer. He put a VP rear axle in that he had the rear diff centered. Does anyone make a servo mount that will work with that set up or do I need to just buy VP front housing and use those parts. I like the centered diff but that means custom shafts and the possibility of having to have other custom parts. I honestly would rather have it offset all the way to one side like we do on the 1:1 stuff. Also when it is time to put the steering shafts in what is the possibility that my spare VP VVD XR shafts will work. I don't mind cutting them down and machining the part that goes into the carrier/locker. Rear steer is something that I have always had in the plans for my 1:1 but never got around to putting the parts on so and I figure it is a hell of a lot cheaper to do it on the wraith.

This thing is so much damn fun and I can only imagine how much more fun i will have with rear steer. The tekin pro4 rocks!

I also plan to have some skins made for it and wrapped with childhood cancer awareness. My wife is a nurse at Children's hospital of Birmingham and works on the cancer floor so I think it would be neat to bring it up there and turn the speed way down to let some of the kids play with it since they have such a positive attitude towards life, something that we all could learn from.

You can use an AX10 version truss for the servo mount and tap it into the tubes.

Also, I modified your post a little due to the "wanted section" type part of it. Feel free to make a new thread on that part in the appropriate section

No worries and thanks for the heads up on the AX10 info.

This is the truss that is on it now. Vanquish AX-10 Axle Truss So just buy a mount and put it on the truss? I assumed what was on it was for a Wraith but after looking at the pics it is definitely a Ax10 version since it it centered and symmetrical. I guess since he centered the diff he used the AX10 truss.

I have a 4pks and know it has a special setting for the 4ws. I havent gotten the rear steer put on but having everything besides the servo mount and one universal. I think my buddy has both but he is out of town for the weekend. Here is a video of it jumping off a little spot in the back yard where our pool used to be at. This thing handles awesome! I edited in Youtube to get it to rotate correctly but the changes might not have taken yet. Other wise flip your screen 90*.
