Default More Steering???

I have these axles under a custom build I had bought but it has zilch for steering radius before the knuckles hit the axle housing. Is there any way at all to improve the steering to these?

With alum or stainless "C's", you might see even the high clearance link hit the corners.
So on the front alum axle casing you have, you might install a knuckle and see where it hits the case, then remove al ittle material in that area with a dremel or file.
If it's on a 1.9 or smaller scaler, you can remove a little from the arm also.

Unfortunately with the TLTs splined dif/shafts, MIPs are the only way to go with TLT front axles for more steering.

Make sure your servo horn/arm is long enough. On my Axial, I had to get a longer arm to get more throw.
