Re: Super Long Travel... Steering?

I would look to the RC world for answers.
Take a look @ the steering on a LOSI JR car, or an RC10
They are running A-Arms, with a Parrallel upper link.

Imagine the plane created be the 2 MOuinting points on the a-arm, and the mounting point of the upper link. As long as you keep your steering joints close to this plane, everything stays happy.

My LOSI JR-xt (1/10 truck) has about 2.5" of front travel, and uses this setup.
I know it's kinda vague, and a pic would be nice, but i dont have my dig camera right now.

Good luck

See you on the pilf side
