Exclamation Rear steer can it be done on a trx4

Can rear steer be done with the stock Traxxas radio and rx ? That works independently of the frt?

Yea I seen that thread but every body has the steering working in unison with the frt just opposite. I would like to control it independently

That is all in the radio set up, which is really the easy part of getting rear-steering on to the TRX4.

Depends...

If it is the Sport radio, no, it only has two channels.

If it is a defender radio, you should be able to mod the high-low thumb switch into three position. Of course, you'll loss the transmission function.

I am not a fan of FlySky radios, but this is a good option to get a higher-channel count radio for not much money. Of course the number of channels depends on what flavor of TRX4 you have, and what remote accessories (winch) you are running. The radio linked below isn't a bad deal for six channels.

Itís the bronco trx4. I would like to put a momentary switch in there for the rear steer if I could

Looks like the Bronco comes with the 4-channel radio, so it can be done off of the transmission channel. But, you'd lose the ability to remotely change gears.

Also, rear-steer is a great low-speed option, but is horrible at high speeds, it makes the truck very unstable.
