Is it worth it?

I am not a competitor but wonder if having rear steering is an evolution that will last. For one its cost is its high cost and takes away part of the difficulty, not to say its easy. A new class has been created for people with this option but I think it takes away from the original intent? What do you guys think.

I really doubt you will see it on non-competing rigs for awhile. Even some compititors say they're not sure they like it. Just a small change in steering changes the feel of the whole vehicle. At a compitition where points=$$$$, it makes sense. But out on the trail with your buddies.... it's probably still just a gimmick (expensive at that).

I don't think it's worth it. Rear steer is cool, and impressive, and can probably help on really, really hard core obstacles. Competition rigs aren't really using it that much because it costs them points. And for a trail rig the benefits don't out-weigh the costs... IMHO
