Default Quick build tip. Steering linkage.

I built my TK by the manual and ended up with a steering linkage that was too long.
The TK has long and short rod ends and the linkage step shows a short end and a long end for the steering linkage. I simply swapped the long end to a short and everything is perfect for centering the servo and getting full throw left and right.

Hope this helps future builders.

Yep I did the same

If you dont do this you end up with much less torque/leverage at the very end of travel in one direction because the servo arm gets very close to parallel with the drag link.

Hey thanks for this I didnít clue in to the error on my build. The arm would hit the chassis before full throw. (Not that Iím using it anyways) I set my radiolink rc6gs to 75% d/r (using reefs444) and removed the funky epa config I had set up previously compensating for the rod being to long.

If you bought on Amain maybe a week ago, then yes lol. Itís fine, gives me time to get a body planned. Not to far of a wait either, early-mid March
