I suppose one way to get turning like that would be a toe out tie rod.

It would make them point out but not sure if that's the effect you are looking for. I have never seen anyone tyr to go beyond the stock steering angle.

grrrr lol hmm i want it to just go out further to almost 90 degrees.... but do you know if MR-02 or 015 steering rods would be able to be swapped onto the overland?

About the only thing I seen about this is the early Xmods cars. Using resisters on the pot to get a tighter turning out of it. There was never much need to do that on any Mini Z though. You brought up Overland, so I am guessing it is for a trail rig or rock crawling? I also guess the D/R knob on the transmitter is turned all the way up?

You'll never see 90 degrees dude, these cannot physically handle over 60-70.

yea dude i dont care about 90 degrees for the overland but maybe for an awd with more rwd power.....for mr015 and overland maybe 75 degrees or stock might do well

this is an intresting topic.

I wish my awd had more steering

some guys at our track add lead weight to the front. I am going to look into this on my awd mod
