Let it be known that the Tamiya Clodbuster is an excellent RC car, its big bouncy and fun!
But its flawed in one particular area, the steering! A standard Clodbuster uses a huge pair of rods to steer the front and rear steering, although it’s OK its a woefully bad design out of the box. It doesn’t center properly and just puts a lot of strain on the servo.
I tried to fix this issue here below in this video but it was never great…
So I decided to go ahead and upgrade to full axle steering upgrade from UKMONSTERS.CO.UK here ebay.co.uk
Anti rotation Brackets (stops gearbox’s twisting) ebay.co.uk
Full list of things needed to do this upgrade:
- 2 Clodbuster Servo Steering link Kits
- 2 Servo’s I recommend these 20 KG Waterproof Servo
Or via Amazon here > https://amzn.to/2N0xL76
- A Y Connector and servo reverser to run two servo’s on one channel
If you are running a transmitter that allows channel mixing then you can do that as well.
If you want to lock out the rear steering you can use this kit UK Monsters lock out kit
Here is some detailed pics on fitting the steering servo link upgrade
As you can see its a pretty straightforward fit, for more on this awesome upgrade check my video below
