Default free mod to get more steering

Grind out the base of the Axle so that the cvd can get more angle. In the drawing I traced the max angle the cvd could go prior to grinding it. You can see how much more steering you get. Hey...Every bit counts when you are in crawler mode

I could be wrong, but I don't think this is going to help. The limiting factor on the steering angle on my Twin Hammers is contact between the caster block and the spindle.

Yes, as said props for trying, but that is going to weaken the CVDs right at the weakest point where the ball attaches to the shaft. That is where we want more strength.
