My EPA's are set up to get full steering, but no more. But it is not only at full steering it happens. And since it has been working before, I don't think that is the problem.

Update from the track:
I just had one of the best drivers in Denmark to look at my car, and fiddle around with it. We tried renovating the spool with new spool cups, bearings and all of that. Same problem.

He said that it is probably the driveshafts, so I am going to get some completely new driveshafts, or borrowing some I know is working. If that doesn't help, I will probably just buy a new car

They fit the steering block. You will have to dremel some of the pass-through hole for the c-hub.

As for the spool cup/gear diff outdrive - you will have to marginally drill out the outdrive to accept the wider Xray ECS ball end.

A little mod work but the outcome is great.
