Default Best Steering for LST

What are you guys running for steering up grades?
Arms
Servo's
Stuff like that to make the steering a bit more responsive!

BAC Steering Link, can be got from [email protected]



With some Extra Servo Springs snapped over the Stockers, & JR 650's are a Good Cheap Servo Up grade......But theres Lots of Good servos out there if you got the Cash to Spend

Sugafree,

i used your pict to pinpoint a question that i have (hope you dont mind that)

i have som slack in my steering and it seems to come from those 2 bolts i circled in your pict.
i looked at them and can say that they are held in plkace by C clips...
is it normal for them to be slack a bit?
looks like they a a bit loose in the servo arm but i see no way to tight them as they are held in place with C clips...

any thoughts?

Theres a Little Play in them.....But if it Seems like alot.....I'd just Put New Savers on...or you could try adding a shim (There Cheap and as with most plastic Parts.......Should be replaced as they wear out)

and Yes you Can use the Savers from the MGT.......(And use Have to use them for Hitec or other Servos with a different Spline count .....with the Tops off the Stockers) But the Stockers with a Extra spring or 2 are just as Good if not Stronger.......

'd think that you could swap in some RPM ball cups, and threaded titanium ball studs if you wanted to get rid of the slop....you can cut the cups down, and use a short turnbuckle to retain the adjustability.....I hate C clips....hehe
