They specify Juggernaut but I don't see why they wouldn't work for the TXT

Only downfall to em is the links that some with the kit, don't allow both knuckles to turn the same as one another. One will be full lock, other won't be when tunred one direction and vice versa.

I have em but have yet to run em (truck ain't been together yet) but I do want to change it to a crossover style steering. Just ain't had time to mess with it yet.

well you are never gonna get full lock on both wheel at the same time due to the acraman type knucles... BUT you can get closer to both being locked at the same time by running one like from the servo to a knucle and a drag link between both the links...

Problem is you can't run the lower links on the top of the axle.

That and the shocks are mounted on the lower links, because that mount is waaay too bulky. That's just going to result in horrid torque twist.

The reason they don't work with the TXT is that the upper links hit the servo case during suspension travel.

I made a couple of spacers for mine, which helped, but I ended up just mounting the servo on the front of the axle with a home-built mount.
