Looks like an error in the PDF - the online version looks more sensible.

If you're very, very rich and need to spend a lot of money on driveshafts?

And also to get a bit more steering. But mostly just to burn cash.

Hagberg's response to running ecs in the rear

The ECS shaft doesn't bind up the suspension as much during cornering which allows the rear to work more freely. The rotation and on-power steering will be increased. Forward traction will be decreased, also as a result of the larger rotating mass on the rear axle.

Here you go Matt

Using the lower hole in the servo saver I get 24-25deg steering on both sides, despite the fact I had to increase the EPA to increase the motion.

Ran the car for the last few weeks now and I think im finally getting to grips with it. Been trying different things and finally got my base car setup. Have to running the car a fair bit stiffer than stock and dial out alot of initial steering. For the first time last night I felt I could drive it how I wanted and was very happy, never really got the same out of last years car.
