    4 Wheel Steering / Rear Wheel Steering

    Does anyone know of a simple way to put rear wheel steering on a Ruster. I have seen it before, but nobody has really put any effort into the practical high speed usage. Rock crawlers use it to turn sharper, but if you set both the front and rear to turn the same direction the car won't change directions, it will just move side to side, making 70+ runs much easier and more stable.
    Both of these can be made separately, but does anyone know of a way to flip a third Chanel switch and invert the rear servo for high speeds, then back again so you can turn around?

    Here is a quick (crappy) sketch of what would be happening to help you visualize this:

    sounds good but where do you put the servo when there's transmission over the rear?
    Does more $ = More fun?

    The shock tower would be modified and the shocks would be on the rear side of the A-arms, then the servo is placed in the empty area on the left side of the battery as far back as it can be. Then the right side has a small swivel thing like the front does before going to that wheel. It wouldn't be able to take extreme jumps, rocks, and such, but it would still only take up about a quarter inch on the bottom thickness wise.

    I could, but I wan't to know if there is a way to flip a switch and invert the rear servo.

    Well, I have the steering setup figured out, but does anyone know how to use a third channel (I will purchase the 3-channel remote) to toggle a servo inverter on a and off.
