    Can anyone give me some advise on how to set my car up with the 4 servos?? I need pics, not a description. The car Im using for now will be a tamiya ta02. A website or pics would be great!

    seperatly so I can hit all sides and 3 wheel and everything else. I do have a 4 channel remote for the system and Im going to have another 2 channel remote to drive it or if I can find a cheap 6 channel Ill use that instead

    you need at least 6 channels. i would suggest getting a plane systeme. every servo needs its own channel.they will need to be hi torqu servos to push down on the a arms.

    Man.. I've wanted to do this since before I bought my first RC car, just never thought it could be done. If anyone does find a way to get it done, a website or what have you, please post it!! That would be the best#@$% thing on this planet, 3 wheel motion around the office... LOL my boss would love me!
