I remember him saying that, just wondering if Joseph can confirm for me.

Hebiki,

From translating the text for the steering rack, it gives maximum steering that the suspension geometry allows for. If you look, right now on the r3, when you turn the steering knuckle, it does not touch the castor block like it used to with the R2. The aluminum rack from Pal will give it the full steering throw again (at least that's what I get out of the text and picture they shown)

Hmm, don't see any point in bearings for the rack, what they should do is add another couple of posts set either further forwards or back to mount a second set of bearings so that each side of the rack has it's own bearings to run on. Would add extra weight though and you'd need some small bearings for it to work with the current rack. I still prefer the old style steering, a lot less hassle

Anyone want to buy a top spec Cuda? chassis is in great shape and all you could want for it are high spec bearings and ceramic diff balls....
Just kind of remotely tempted by the Pro 4 or X-Ray factory team partly just for the ease and cost of parts but also for setup help for wooden floors. But then again my Cuda is so darn pretty
