Default Steering mods for a Tamiya Scania.

Hi again, I've been looking around at various places for info on making the truck steer better. ie: smaller radius. I noticed that a lot of trucks have the steering servo in the front of the truck as opposed to on the side rail. I've also seen guys bend the steering link to clear the rest of the pieces under the truck. What is the "preferred" way of doing this? I also would be appreciative if there were instructions on how to accomplish this mod. THANKS

Hi,

if you want to use the original axle, you can modify it in this way:



I also rotated the axle so hat the servo is sitting in front of the axle and the steering link behind the axle.
