Default tc steering angle

I have several tamiya tcs even tho I'm fairly new to on road. Mine are all tamiya and love them except for the tts. I wanna build a diff brand maybe a team or sakura. I want to make sure not to get a chassis with limited steering angle like the tt01+2s. Suggestions on chassis to avoid that have limited angles like the tts? I really like the team tc club or apex as a budget car but can't find info on the steering angle and if it cuts short like tt02s.

I had a Tamiya XV01 a while back. I put double cardan cvd shafts upfront and it had the most steering angle I've seen on a awd touring car.

Your complaining about limited steering angles. But you purchased an extremely entry level tamiya car. For $50 more you could've purchased a much higher quality tamiya car. TA05, TA06, TA07, TB04 all have what you are looking for. And definitely any TC that's $300 and up will offer what your looks g for and way more. Pick a car and hit the track

You can't find steering angle here because nobody talks about it. There is no set steering angle for the car although I find that anything over 26 degree is overkill. 26 degree is pretty much the maximum mechanical steering angle you can get out of most of the car. You might think your car's steering is limited but you might be running optimum angle already. Your car's front end might be scrubbing. Measure the steering angle in and out and post it. You will need set up station for that.

Forgot to ask what you will be using the car for? For racing, you don't need a lot of steering angle since if your turning too tight you will be scrubbing speed and going slower. However if you have some other use, let us know and we can go from there.

The Team Associated TC4 does not have a steering stop like the TTs. Not sure about the Apex. However, there is a practical limit to the steering angle when the knuckle hits the c hub. But there is plenty of steering even for small tight tracks with the TC4.

I have all parts working so I dnt need anything immediate I just like to be able to get spares without having to dig around, for instance chassis plate, I've scuffed and scratched the hell out of the one bashing in p lots n dnt see a carb reinforced one anywhere.

3Racing, SpecR, BSR BT-4 are few that come to mind. Belt driven. Iíve been running the BT-4 for over a year in all kind of conditions. Itís becoming harder to find. Iíve got a few from 3Racing. Not their touring car but a FWD and couple drift cars. All have been solid.

Havenít tried the SpecR. But have raced against one.

Itís a rebranded Team C. I knew nothing about it when I bought mine. I was on the edge of trying racing. And for a short time the BT-4 was sold a 21.5 RTR version, a 13.5 almost ready to run, and as a kit.
