Default Bell Crank Steering?

anyone fooled with this? bell crank mounted to the axle. servo mounted to the chassis(in front of skid).
thoughts? ideas? examples? waste of time?

Theo old Kyosho Twin Force had a similar setup, work ok for the truck, but not really scale or precise for crawling. Sounds like a lot of unneaded stuff to try and cram on a axle? I have use a modded frame mounted steering bellcrank off a Tamiya Hilift. Mimic a real steering box better than a servo hanging off the front of the frame.

i thought bout doing that with my clod build, but room was an issue where i wanted to mount the servo....but i was thinking of making an extention with some alum plate off the top of knuckle to move it forward and backwards with a rod from servo mounted back in the chassis....i think it would work good ........bob

I like the way you did this. The long steering arm. Zero or no bump steer.

I did the same type steering on my wreckluse (mean green) over a year ago, the rig has been to acouple different owners sence and its still working flawless! No bumpsteer and lots of steering due to offset cantilever arm. I mounted servo under the driver seat.

I guess its ok if you need the room under the hood. I do like the weight closer to the center of the skid also..

I ran into this old thread while looking for ideas and I think some interesting ideas had been posted there, so here is my setup.
The servo is mounted right in front of the transmission, between the upper links.
It was a pain to figure out and took a good amount of time to build, but I'm satisfied of it
It does suffer from minor bump steer.

3 links and a panhard would get rid of the bump steer, but I didn't want one
