Bully Steering kit from East End Machining. Keeps the horn safe too by keeping it up away from rocks. Servo can be mounted various ways too.

Another low budget slop fix,,I installed a hand cut washer made from 1mm nylon between the hex pin and the bearing of the front axles to take up a little of the lateral slop in the axles

Default Re: Bully tips, tricks and parts list.

I'm a experienced shafts guy that has gone as far as possible with
My ax10 and spent as much as I'm willing to. Always wanted a Moa and now have my chance I purchased a set of bully axles and have loads of questions ? Can I use my reign rc chaos wide mouth ax10 chassis for my bully with mods ? And where do I even start with link lengths?
