Default BTA VS OTA steering setup

I have a class3 tuber chassis very similiar to the wreckluse. i have my steering servo mounted in the chassis. my axles are stock axial ax10. i have noticed that i smash rocks pretty regularly. so im wondering if i can do a behind the axle setup with my stock axles, meaning just flipping the knuckles from side to side.. im not reall sure if it will work. pictures would help aslo.

To do it correctly your going to need high steer knuckles, a new draglink and possibly tie rod, and some mild metal fabrication to make a new servo plate/battery tray.

Or, you can get on of the aftermarket offerings: Axial or CKRC I think offer a few different versions.

I think OTA is better, everything is up and out the way period...BTA is also more complicated imo

Yup. I checked out my rig closer and my best bet is to ota. Behind is cluttered but would be better for my angle cuz of my servo position.
