Is there any way to put a steering rate knob in a KT-18 radio

hmm... do you mean the steering dual rate?

good question...
my answer... don't know... but i guess if there's a will there's a way...

that's one reason why i still stick with the kt-2 vs. the kt-5 on my am cars...
the knob is just above the trigger which you can easily adjust while driving...
the kt-5 dual rate is covered up and not easily adjustable while driving...

another alternative is to bite the bullet and upgrade your radio...

hope this helps... :D

I don't think it does.
Does not mention it on the manual, and all the things I found is steering angle, and brake/throttle power.

I dont know if this will break rules but I heard about it on an xmods forum. A guy found out about it and used it for his 2.4ghz xmod

That's steering angle and not steering rate.
I haven't found anything related to the kt-18 about any steering rate capability.

The KT18 has end point adjustment. By reducing the end points, you basically reduce the steering rate as well. That is a pain to do if you wan to change the rate quickly.
The steering like all controllers is basically a potentiometer. You should be able to change the steering rate if you put another potentiometer in parallel with it along with 2 resistor. Trick is just picking the correct resistor values.
