Quick rack
« skrivet: juni 15, 2014, 22:41:33 »
Is there any interest in a higher geared rack and pinion to fit into the original 300 series rack? The gearing would reduce the number of turns of the steering wheel to 2.5 turns lock to lock.

 These kits will be ideal for track cars especially drifting or autotest and rally cars

 Price is £300+ delivery (Buyers in Sweden could have all the kits sent to a single address to save on shipping)

 The kit does need to be assembled into your existing steering rack as I do not have any LHD cores to offer an exchange on

I would ideally need at least 10 confirmed orders to get these produced. If there was a lot of interest to make a bigger production run then the price might come down a little bit.

Reply if you are interested

I'm sure it will take a while to get ten together. Should give you a reasonable amount of time to save up :)

Not such good news, I have had the pricing back and its a lot more than expected as the bearing needs to be changed for a bigger one and when the give me a rough estimate had not allowed for making the T flange  :(

I will discuss things further with them and get a 100% accurate price

Is this for power steering or the manual version? ;)

This is only for manual steering cars. There is no place for power steering on a race car  :P

Price has worked out a fair bit more than expected at £300 per kit

I will give it another month or so before knocking the idea on the head. In the UK higher geared steering is very common for competition cars. I assume these are not already available?

OK!

In Sweden the higher geared steering is very common in rallying, but have never seen one for Volvo 3-series.

It is very common in the UK also but the only way that you can do it at the moment is to bodge a rack from another car on.

I'm sure these racks kits will sell but I need at least a few firm orders before I can invest more money into the project. At the moment I only have 1 confirmed order for a LHD kit and 1 for a RHD kit.
