Just a short video showing my mod to my WPL c14. The 4-wheel steering is pretty sweet! It wasn't a hard modification it just required enough stuff to justify buying two kits if you wanted to make a 4-wheel steering rig of one of these. Hope you enjoy and I will have a how to video on this soon. Now go RunThatRc!

      Gonna do this too. Just finished it on my HG or Heng Guen P402 Crawling Car ( yep, thats what they call it), LPL. It was NOT as straight foreward as this WPL. But....
      ......off the subject if ya dont mind. Anyone else is welcome to help out if can.
      I have the C24, Toyota with topper. Stock so far. But...it acts odd. It has twice the power in reverse as foreward. Is the RTR model, not the kit. Nothing has been touched. It just has 2X the speed and torque in reverse than foreward gear. Single speed stock, plastic trans. The smaller motor I think? 130, not 180. Any ideas? Anyone?

      a replacement front axle is just under 5 bucks, with a Y harness it's pretty easy/cheap to make full time 4WS (done it, and 4 mode is MUCH nicer!). my experiment was simpler, just using shorter position on the rear servo arm so rear steers half as much. kinda tricky shape but made the pull-rod+shock+servo mount from fairly thick sheet metal, the plate over the pumpkins are almost touching them (and thin!) giving the place to axle mount the steering servos, no bump steer. funny looking until it got some flat black paint thrown at it lol.

      suspension softening: check out HobbyDaddy, he drilled holes in frame rails to mount the tops of the shocks further inboard (about 3/4" worth). kinda looks more "normal" than being tipped outwards too.

      a step beyond? eBay some half threaded 50 mm M3 cap head machine screws. cutting the threads off to be 5/16" length, then grinding+polishing the diameter of the caps down a little to fit the shock bodies. you do have to CA the threads into the stock shock bottoms (they're 3 mm not 4), and use a cutoff wheel to remove about half the "solid" (both ends) of the springs (because the cap screw heads are thicker), but you gain about 5 mm of negative suspension travel at the shock, means 8-9 mm more further outboard at the wheels. now about double that number for total end to end twist/flex value... oh hey now! you get 10 of those cap screws for just 3-4 bucks, enough to do 2 of the C-series.

      after that of course, the Fayee wider offset wheels/tires for gaining sideways stability. 5 bucks a set of 4, the tires do soften up some when bag soaked a day in WD-40, they also expand slightly so you're wrapping the tire bead slots with paper and CA to get them centered and tight again (aka make them f'n work!).

      while at eBay, couple 100 gram rolls of 2 mm solder for wrapping front rims up for some wheel weight, really easy fit for anything. 2 rolls was enough to double wrap 2 Fayee rims for MK-D90, triple wrap 2 WPL rims, and a single wrap to a 1/22 size Subotech "Brave" fronts (modded it into a mini crawler/bouncer with a slower 180 torque motor, locked up diffs, softened suspension with spring cutting and positioning, WPL kit tires, minor wheel well trimming, filling all light buckets LED's, cute little chit I'm tellin ya). very low cost mods can get these cheap things performing a whole lot better. know you saw the notes about a "Siamese gearbox" (oh yeah!).

      JJRC axles arrived yesterday, WPL compatible enough with much larger plastic bevel gears in them. 11 bucks the set, rear axle diff may have some debris in a tooth but gonna lock them up anyway so no biggie. if (when) stock (shimmed!) bevel gears fail in the C-24 got something to slap in that should put up with the Siamese gearbox idea better.

      with all 4 modes, definitely! for toy class (bang bang 4 mode 4WS) YYplay's YY300 for 30 bucks is a hoot, and its a WPL size wheelbase, conveniently. edit: the flex is REALLY good too btw.
