Looks like your Dad will have to drive the rental. Most rental car companies require you to be 25 years old.

Default New Horizontal Steering Lever

Now have the new horizontal lever with the ball studs mounted 5mm from the lever. Not too thrilled about this arrangement...wish the new lever was longer (a lot longer).

I use 36T pulleys; so, there is a lot of useable room from the stock lever to the pulley.

Has anyone tried moving the center steering lever forward by drilling a new hole in the top deck? That seems to be a better alternative than using spacers to get the steering geometry right.

Are you also using the new steering blocks?
I can't see why you'ld want to move the post forward otherwise?
I haven't seen anyone yet making that mod.

In combination with the new blocks the geometry is better then the orginal version.

Do you mean the narrow steering blocks?

Well I've to double check but the original ones have 2 holes (for the ball/steering link) next to eachother (left to right).
While the new ones have 2 holes in the length.
If you use the rear hole the geometry works like a charm.

Hope this helps.

The diff in the rear fits the front with out and problems. Only thing you need to do is make sure the holders are the right way.
