Someone mention checking the gears for grease and that they might be plastic. Happy to see they're both metal and greased.

Got mine today and agree it runs great! I am HAPPY to see they must have seen and listened to everyone and now actually used grease in this one!

I wonder if rear wheel steering can be added to this truck with minimal "hacking"? That would be sweet as the short wheelbase would make it turn on a dime with RWS!
Looking online, looks like you need:

servo mount (rear axle case looks like it has the mounting points already)
steering linkages
front axles (the inner axles, not the casing)
front hubs/knuckles

then either a better tx/rx so you can do mixing, or just a y harness and reverser if you wanted full time 4ws.

Cool! So relatively simple then! If I get one I will definitely do the 4ws...I bet it would turn on a dime then.

Thanks for the video


Purchased one of these last weekend. Ordered a servo after reading comments. When I have the servo off I’all look at modifying the steering. Thanks for the video

Servo question


Hey Conradm, when you swapped your servo what did you do about the power on switch? I bought a servo but discovered that the power on switch and servo are on the same connector on the esc?

hmmm mine has an extension that's tucked in next to the battery tray. I just plugged the new servo into the extension.

Some real tires for the little Temper! Class 1 Hyrax. Now I just need some good weather to roll around again lol. Wheels are pro-line fault lines and added about 30g per corner.
