crawlster®BTA – the unique BTA steering system for all serial AXIAL®SCX10 (I) front axles.


crawlster®BTA – SteeringSystem – SCX10 (I)

 Fixes negative steering angles and improves the steering geometry / performance by positive Ackerman-effect. Maneuverability and off-road ability are clearly optimized:

  • universal application with standard- and hi-clearance knuckles fits also SSD D60 axles
  • no steering bar in front of the axle – optimized banking angle
  • easy installation – no complicated reconstruction
  • up to 100% drop deployable – allows 4-link suspension
  • 30 parts all inclusive complete set
  • not suitable for SCX10 II  (AX90046 SCX10 II)

crawlster®BTA – Application · Features · Benefits

overview-of-all-crawlster-bta-steering-system-features

Welcome to the crawlster®BTA steering system – the only BTA-steering system for AX-SCX-1/10 vehicles with which the benefits of a behind-the-axle articulation can be easily and perfectly realized both with standard knuckles (plastic) as well as Hi-clearance knuckles (aluminum).

The crawlster®BTA steering system gives your AX-SCX-1/10 crawl, trail or scale model a completely new cornering
performance – with dramatically improved off-road maneuverability and mobility!

The crawlster®BTA steering system provides optimized steering geometry and dramatically improved off-road maneuverability:

  • Unique BTA steering system – innovative concept to realize a „behind-the-axle“ articulation
    for all AX-SCX-1/10 serial front axles
  • Immediate & dramatic improvement of steering geometry / performance
  • Fixes negative steering angles – now the inner wheel steers ≥ zero / more than the outside wheel
  • Universal application also with standard knuckles – optimizes the steering geometry ≥ zero Ackerman
  • Positive Ackerman steering geometry with Hi-clearance knuckles

The crawlster®BTA steering system can quickly and easily be installed by anyone:

  • No complicated reconstruction
    such as lifting the servos necessary
  • The centre of gravity does not get raised
  • 29 parts all inclusive complete set
  • Standard + hi-clearance options included
    in the set can be updated at any time
  • Easy assembly:
