thx for posting the picture.
I am sure the new rack will be much better than the old one but I still would prefere something like Dustin uses. It will give a 100% chance of not getting stuck

Yup I stand corrected ball studs are mounted just like my Exotek rack.

That will spark some curiosity!

to me it doesnt look like a exotek rack, and to me it doesnt look like any rack that was already released or seen. ball studs are more inwards on the exotek..

Hop elex300 is right

My guess on that. Team drivers don't always build or run new kits just because it's coming out. They've been testing and running the updated performance parts on their current cars. His car is basically the new 2.0, except maybe for the battery hold down. Which most likely is more of a convenience item than performance. Pro's don't build new kits as often as some people would think.

pictures are worth a thousand words, not hard to visualize a bell crank style steering set up in their. nice catch.

option parts for your still unavailable 22 2.0 coming soon

Or he just doesn't like battery braces and like the straps instead.

I would think Pro's build kits more than you or I think but what would that matter?

That brings up the question, rack vs. bell crank. Is one better than the other? Steering geometry is different between the two isn't it...?

rack simply slides, bell crank is on a pendulum..
