How power steering works

I’ve decided that a little bit of discussion on mechanics could be interesting so to start things off here is a very good video detailing how power steering works.

Obviously we are unlikely to get anything this complex in a 1:32 scale model tractor but it could give you something to think about and maybe figure out a different problem as a result.

If you work with 1:16 or 1:10 models you could possibly add some form of hydraulic steering but realistically it would be more for show than as a practical steering solution. 

If anybody has a question about something in the video or has an idea they want to bounce off someone then pop over to the RC Tractors Forum and we’ll try to help.

As usual don’t forget to keep an eye on the website and like us on Facebook to spread the word.
