    It's been a very busy week at work so not much done, apart from painting the steering wheel boss black, but no pics.
    I did manage to bend the steering cable brackets though 1/2 Scale Crawler in the UK.

    Right, so I think I'm gonna have to go back to the drawing board with the steering.
    I remade the cable clamp brackets and they are solid. What I'm getting now is a lot of cable stretch and the outer cables compressing.



    I'm considering ditching the cables and running solid bars with bell cranks as per my original thoughts.

    If anyone has any constructive input, please feel free to chime in. The steering needs to be 100% before I move onto the drive motors.

    On another note I fitted some more lights to the buggy. I wanted them in the front to replace the little round one's but they are slightly too big so I whacked them on the roof.

    Bell crank or hydraulics. Even push pull cables are only good to ~80lbs reliably.

    ditto plk, but rods n bellcrank to the back end seems a nightmare layout. I'd go hyd with mini rams or linear motion actuator type setup. Cable even in normal applications can turn into a continual maintenance headache--for steering, i personally wouldn't go down that path.

    Cheers guys. I see where you are coming from, but a separate power supply to run a hydraulic pump or linear actuator seems like just as much of a headache. I'm gonna go with the rods and bell crank. I just need to design an efficient way to package them.
