Default HELP WITH AXLES...turning radius

I searhced and searched but could not find a thread on the truning radius of clod axles. Do you guys just cut the "C hub" plastics little tabs off for more turning on a 2 wheel steering setup? Or is there antoher way?

Cut the little nubs off the wheel hubs. Or you could cut the axle tube nubs but It may make it weaker.

Yeh, don't cut the stops off of the tubes. Just grind the tabs off the knuckles.

I dont think a longer servo horn would give you any more turning radius, since your limited by the axles. Only thing it would do is give you less torque.

you will want to use the most inner hole on the arm or servo saver that you can use and get full through to take advantage of all the torque,meaning it will put more torque this way.the further out it mounts it looses torque.
and also to add more steering when you cut the stops you will notice you only gained a little more,you will also see the hubs hitting the axle tubes when full turned,you can gain a little more turning by shaving the hubs a little
