Default Rear steer on scx10

Hey guys, looking to put rear steer on my scx10. I wanted to know what I needed for it. I already have the servo. Just wondering what other parts I need for it.

I would think you need axle housing C's, knuckles, stub axles, dogbone style axles to work with the stubs, a couple extra bearings for inside the knuckles, linkage and rod ends, servo arm, screws and your servo mount plate and servo mounts, and lastly modify/remove that X brace at the back of the chassis so your suspension can flex and not hit the servo mounted on top of the rear axle!

I was just gonna order a upgrade for the front servo, a reverse harness, a servo, an a wraith servo mount. Didn't think I needed all that. Love the wheels btw

Cool glad you like them! Now I may be totally wrong on what I just said above, but I was thinking about doing this too and those are all the things that popped in my head...

Axial has (maybe had) a rear steer kit (AX30492) for the original AX10. Taking a look at that kit wouldn't hurt. It should give you a good idea of some of the parts needed. It's really just a hardware kit and unfortunately uses green aluminum links, but shows some of the parts you will need.

I did this to my SCX10 and it's one of the best mods I've done. Mine is a 2.2 rig and I simply love having rear steer.

The only issue I see with that kit you linked is that it's for the original AX10 which I think used toe links/c's knuckles already on the rear end, where the newer SCX-10 trucks just have the lockout straight axle ends on the rear end????

You're absolutely right. That's what I meant--but didn't articulate very well--by that it was mostly just a hardware kit.
