High steer knuckles might fix that....
I've had it on there for about a month now, 4 days out of the week I normally go for a solo trip normally about 2 hours long around the lake never had any issues. Time and money wise I probably used less then $1 in Plexiglas, tiny bit of superglue, and about 1 hour of my time.

High clearance knuckles would do anythng to help, it's hard to explain but because of the physics there's no such thing as a cms kit that allows for a fully functional suspension without bumpsteer

Newbie here, but arent the chassis for the honcho and dingo the same thing? Why would they be different? I thought the only thing seperating the two was the length of the links to the axles?

I think you're right about the rails.
The longer links places the front diff further forward.
So I imagine the difference in the CMS would be the location of the panhard mount on the servo plate.


Looks like slightly different hardware kit to.
After looking at the photos it seems the panhard and servo mounts are further forward on the Honcho kit.

Mark, you're spot on.
All Honcho and Dingo drive train parts are the same (within reason) except for the links lengths.

Honchos have a longer rear link set-up hence the 317mm wheelbase...

Anyone else think it's funny that it's a chassis mounted steering steering kit Just thought that was kinda funny.

Don't forget ABS brakes!?... Same idea as generis but by moving the servo back to the "firewall" -there is room enough for a front mounted battery as well. Requires an extra link and has more potential for slop.
