Hydraulic Steering Scorpion Tuber

Frame was built by John Boyer from 1/8 in steel rod (not tube)
Has TXT axles with full bearings
Super Rooster ESC
55 turn lathe motor mounted to GD-600 which is mounted to a TXT transmission
Maximizer solid black beadlocks with rock rings I cut on a manual mill
HPI Savage tires
Full hydraulic steering system (pump/reservoir, valves w/ Futaba micro servos, and four cylinders). System is rated at 12lbs of linear force per axle@150psi but actual pressures and steering forces vary with the load placed on the steering system.
Two cylinders per axle in a push/pull configuration.







$2,000. Shipping extra - it's a heavy fuker.

No trades. If it doesn't sell here it'll go to eBay.

I saw the steering a long time ago it has a bunch of super small shit in it, way cool though. I remember it having a potentiometer for some type of return to center I think?

Yeah, the rear can be set up for a return to center.

Using that gives you a full left/center/full right steering option on the rear.

Otherwise you're driving the rear just like the front...only on different channels.
