Flyin' Miata Mod

I guess alot of people are starting to do this in the auto world. Miata guys love it, and mr2 spyders are getting there. Im pulling a motor out this weekend and ill pull the rack out and see if its possible with ours.

any other thoughts or ideas? Might be a cheap alternative to the Manual rack for 1g guys and a good option for 2g guys.

I'm sure it will increase it.

Drive a Lotus Elise... hitting road reflectors wrenches the wheel from your hands lol.

Honestly it isn't that big of a deal unless you are a total tard.

I depowered my 1g rack after I saw that site a while ago. It is definately easier to steer than just looping the power steering lines.

I'm in a 1g and my ps rack has been de-powered by a previous owner. It's a bitch sometimes, but there's no power steering setup that can communicate to you like this...

My friend who has a mr2 spyder did this and he's big into autox and he was telling me that in a turn he can feel when the tires are starting to give so he can steer back into the turn, in other words he loves it lol

Any updates on this? I've been researching this quite a bit lately, and I am looking forward to any information you've got.

Damn, looks like a good idea, Won't this increase "Bump steering"?
Nope.

Bump steer is a result of steering geometry which is unaltered during a "de-power". You might feel more bumps, but it won't actually be bump steer.

Read this. :cool:

The extra rack should be out of the parts car by wed and I'll prolly try to do a vfaq on this for a 1g rack...

One of the guys from a DSM site that I mod on has already done this to his 1G, so it's definitely a possibility:

I plan on doing the same to my 2G rack when I have time as I just have the lines looped right now.

Would love to see a full write up for DSM'ers swade that we can all reference too! :D
Looks like you need to register, any way you can copy and paste here, or is there too much stuff?
