We’ve never owned an R/C truck that had so many servos on it! Due to the multiple servos and to have the ability to control the transmission range and differential locking directly from the controller means this sucker is outfitted with a five channel receiver (something you’d normally see in an R/C airplane) to control it all. The metal rods you see are the servo’s linkages that turn the rotary motion of the servo into a linear one to engage or disengage the differentials and transmission. The two large servos that are mounted upside down (black bottoms) are the high torque steering servos and their linkages are under the truck’s main chassis.
