The Hot Racing Axial SCX10 II AR44 Aluminum Servo On Axle SOA Mount is an aluminum servo on axle conversion for the Axial AR44 axle housing. This moves the servo off the chassis and on to the axle and is recommended for performance and competition oriented builds.
- Mounts directly to axle
- Better steering Link geometry
- Stiffens servo mount
- CNC machined aluminum, anodized black
- (1) aluminum steering servo mount
- (1) Aluminum axle brace
- (1) steering link
Just a couple heads up...
Using this kit means you will have to remove the stock servo mount and battery tray. You will need to make/buy a new battery tray and relocate it. I re-purposed a quad-copter frame plate and mounted it horizontally on the rear battery tray cross member just ahead of the motor. This is a popular mounting location.
Using this kit changes the front end from a 3 link to a 4 link. You will remove the pan-hard bar and will have to cut the bar mount off of your shock tower.
They provide the necessary links in the kit but you will need a extra long servo horn to make the steering geometry work. Also the 4 link bar looks nothing like the axial bar, so if you're someone that cares about all your parts matching you wont be happy with it.
Had to modify a bit for it to work. Tried every way to avoid but was off about 1/32 on each side
Given the axle and servo position you would think the steering link would be correct- nope
2.5 inches short. Would not recommend
