I run a spektrum DX4C so it has steering mix built in. Run it off aux2. I can turn it on or off. If you have a DX4S you can set it for front/crab/4ws

I've got a airtronics Mt4. How did you connect the bec to 2 servos?

That's going to change once I get a second spektrum 6250 HV servo. I'll run a bypass then

Idk I would guess close to that my servo is out but I'll push it in a circle and see. I did do the xr10 mod on the front

wow, mine is that tight with just my usual axial high clearance knuckles and aluminum chubs, I still have the dogbone axles in the front. I was thinking about doing the narrow XR mod to try and gain some more turning,but its close to 200 bucks with the beeftubes, XR axles, vp wraith chubs and knuckles and knuckle bushings.... not sure if its worth doing at this point...

My setup ( if I put in axial cvd axles) was half that cost and turns as well...

here is the side shot to show you where the links are mounted. I don't know if it would be any tighter with the servo. I have all the parts to do 6 wheel steering I just need some free time to knock it out.

thanks for the side shot, right now I think my rear springs are way to firm. I need to soften then up a lot... Do you notice a difference in the way the rear shocks are mounted.. yours are slightly pointing towards each other and mine are both slightly leaning forward..
