not realy what your looking for is called a super class crawler. you would need to either build your own or buy 1 from an online vender. most guys use berg axles or heavly modified clod axles. id say your best bet is to sign up over at rccrawler.com and search the super class section

The Axial XR10 is a dual motor kit with a MOA axle design, and has recently become very affordable ($130 shipped at Tower). It would probably be a very good base for what you want.

the only comp legal rig with rear steer are super class rigs. 2.2 and 1.9 class rigs can not have rear steer at all. but 2.2 class can have whats known as moa which means motor on axle and there are a bunch of decent 2.2 moa rigs out there but not that many super rigs lots of the guys will build their chasis from scratch

Whats the difference between digs and moa?


Correct me if I'm wrong please but digs allow power to be sent to front only rear only or both front and rear? moa is just both motors on the axles pulling evenly?

Default DIG

Dig will lock up either your front axle or rear axle for a "burn turn" which can be a big advantage on a tight course. It basically locks for instance both front tires but allows the rear tires to power on so you can slide the rear of the rig around to position your rig to a better line to climb.
