VDF steering rack mod

Postby stuffcc » Thu Oct 13, 2011 10:22 am

Well, since a long time ago (very long time ago) I think to mod my steering, I tried all of the possibilities in my head to mod it but only one respected my constraints so, I made 3D parts, a first prototype, a second (on the pics) and I'm happy, need to test that (this week) and when i'll be back to school I'll see if they will can do a one piece rack (better that 1/2 + 1 part :lol: )

I have ~50° steering angle, I don't need more, I can't have more (shafts) and I don't want more (more that 50° is useless (it's my opinion)).
I'll reduce the speed of my servo (from 0.11s to 0.16s) cuz I don't want a super fast steering > unrealistic.

I don't have a lot of play, no more that stock chassis, I'll apply my little tip to remove the play in the tie rods.

This mod is more bolt on that what I believed, cool...

As DORIYAAA said, the kunkles comes from DP type C, I use it for my caster mod ;)

Yes, cuz of double frames etc but it can be adapted on other chassis I think, not all however... ;)

Is it possible to get it to fit on TC-FD? Wanting to mod my TC-FD for more angle. TA-05 VDF & TC-FD are quite similar *-| Are you able to take order? :oops:

Maybe in the future i'll do a kit for VDf, but I don't own a TC-FD so I can't see if it's possible etc...

WOW :) Interestingly enough, did:) I'd try to offer extended retention of the "Steering track for FF03" a little closer to the drives.
Thus try to increase the inversion for a couple of degrees:)

Google is your friend, I gave you the reference !

Anyway I bought them on RCmart. ;)

But you have to know that there is a version 2 now. Never tested them, but I want, and I will with my next chassis.
