Power Rack & Pinion is Standard on all West Coast Cars
Our kits come with New Ford racks already installed
The new power assist rack & pinion we use gives you the road feel you need. Our power steering system is power assist steering rather than full power steering. Most of us do not like driving any car that does not give us feedback in the steerin wheel as to how far we are pushing it in a corner. We also like to be able to park or turn the steering at low speeds without being King Kong. This has a lot to do with having very wide front tires.
Do you realize a lot of race cars today are using power steering?
This picture above shows a good view of the entire front suspension
The bottom part of the frame under where the rad is mounted, is a removable sub-assembly so the radiatior can be removed easily anytime in the future. Just remove the bolts and everything can be dropped down at the same time.
You can see the round recepticals for where the front bumper is mounted to the frame
A very important feature of our chassis is the skid plate that is under the nose section of the body so if by chance you hit going up a steep driveway, there is no body damage. This skid plate not only protects the nose of the body but this is where the nose section of the body is mounted to. This makes the nose section of the body a lot stronger than any other car manufacture can give you.
|The steering shaft combined with the steering column makes it double collapsible. We also use OEM steering knuckles that hold up a lot longer than aftermarket ones we have tried in the past.|
