New Steering System

Hi,

I'm Pierre-Olivier COLMICHE.
I have a new product to present to you, it is designed by French : CHAURE Jérome.

The baja is a very good rc but the direction is not very good : it is floating and vague,
So we had an idea : create a new servo saver : new system of direction

The prototype has been realized and the tests are very successful, this parts who consists of :



New aluminium plate
Top aluminium plate
Horn right pivot aluminium 7075
Horn left pivot aluminium 7075
Chock steering servo/batterie
Chock steering servo
Servo saver baja 4x4
Ball and socket joint for M6
Steel ball
Ball linkage
Linkage
Radio box
Screwed and nuts












The product has already been tested, there were no breaks and various prototype.

This product will be available in about 1 month in DDM

Thank
Pierre-Olivier

looks very similar to the older bergonzoni type steering mechanisms. or much like is on the FGs.

Is it possible to see a bit more of the hook up to the servo location?

im guessing this will need the topplate setup to hold the servo in its location?

Pierre, I agree the baja's handling is very wishy-washy. So, If this steering/servo saver mod allows the HPI Baja to have steer crispness like an FG, then I am all for it. Kudos
Good work.

more torque thru the servo saver into the tie rods. ie, better turning when moving and when stopped.

Hello

Thank you for your reply.

I forgot to say that with this product, you can only mount servos type: Rhino Digi4, Hitec 5745, 5755 HPI Digital SFL-30MG

For people who have not understand the advantage with this product : the direction is not vague, she becomes more accurate and runs better.

With this there is no need to shrink your chassis.

For the batteries, if you have a chassis "normal", the battery is positioned between the plate and the tank, but we must slightly change the battery, I put pictures on the type of battery it takes obtain.

nice setup. does this require a new top plate, or does the carbon fiber part work on the stock front end?
