Default Any tips for more steering angle?

As the title says I guess. I have cvds but they have made no difference at all, and my exponential is as far as its needed but my turning circle I feel could be a lot better, so fire away with ya tips! 👀

If you look at the kit directions it shows a minor amount of trimming done to the steering stops to allow additional steering angle.

YOu need bump up end points, not Expo to push the servo further.

As mentioned, you can (and should) trim down the steering stops and that's the path to maxing out the steering angle on the Venture. It won't get 10.2 good, but it can get better than Venture rtr..

Also, if you've deleted the stock servo saver (if you haven't, you should. It limits steering angle and feel.) make sure you've also shimmed the servo down in order to maintain the stock push rod angle (aka: servo horn position). Not adjusting the servo position makes it really hard to get the steering set-up properly without using a longer push rod.

What kind of shafts are you using to allow that much steering angle? Ive converted mine to Ascender cvd's and it has decent max angle, but not like that!

Looks like R2j might have these: https://store.rc4wd.com/XVD-Universa...re_p_7508.html

Given the choice, I'd always choose a u-jointed shaft over a "cvd" at this scale. The u-joints allow more steering angle out of the box, and with some minor Dremel work can usually achieve 50-60 without binding. All the "cv" type axles for 1/10 scale are actually just universals (not actually constant velocity joints) with a round yoke instead of a "U" yoke, so there's really no benefit to them anyway.

Looks like he's got some fairly large hubs on there to allow for the extra angle, a small inwards bend on the lower front links would be worthwhile to help reduce tire rub. Maybe add a spacer between the lower links and their mounts at the axle to inboard them 5mm or so too.

Yes I'm running the RC4WD shafts, plus I have turned the servo around, shimmed it down roughly 3mm in front and 1.5mm in the rear and slightly clearance the lower edge of the frame rail.



Yes I'm running .850 hubs, but only to get the track width I was after. It does give me a bit more, but not a ton more. Picture with stock wheels and tires.
