welcome
can you used the steering mechanism from an automobile on your RC..??

you can but it would be pretty heavy..

seriously .. the linkage principles can be applied ( these were derived from horse and buggy designs as a matter of fact)

there are numerous RC racers on this post..just ask them

You could of course use a rack and pinion arrangemnt. Getting something the correct size might be tricky. There has to be manufacturers who make RC steering arrangements. I would have thought that a go cart type steering would be better.

The acutaly physical mechanism for turning the wheels is the easy bit.

How are you actuating the system?
