    nope, just front steering.

    i used to have 4 wheel steering on it, but it makes it more difficult to make it up steep terrain.

    using aftermarket knuckles and CV joints on the front allows for a greater steering angle. so it makes up for not having 4 wheel steering.

    sweet.

    ya, i did the same thing. i added about 4 oz of lead weights in each wheel so now they each weight about 1/2 pound. that makes a huge difference in traction.
