Here's mine with only hpi 6 degree c-hubs. Waiting for my jet racing 8 degree to come in. I drilled out the holes to mount the steering rack and installed the flange bearings too.

Let me know how the durability is with the bearings installed. I had originally thought there would be inssuficient material around the bearings to hold up to repetitive crashes. If it lasts, I may make a running change and just have them cut to accept the bearings.

Its cutting it pretty close having the holes drilled out for the bearing. I did resealed the edges for insurance, so far they are holding up and I try as much to avoid crashing into a wall at full steering lock.

Hi everybody!

I'm quite new here but I do have a TCFD and it seems that your steering plates are a MUST HAVE !

Did you produce them in small series? How could I buy one?

Thanks...

Since I keep getting PM's about this steering rack, I am going to try having a second batch cut mid to end of next week.

This is sooooooo nice! :up: :up: :up:

Excellent, because I just complete my countersteer transmission mode, this modded steering plate will be perfect!!!

Once done, only FBD will remain :mrgreen:

I broke my steering rack :( but modified it to fit with the stock steering system...... I guess drilling the holes bigger for the flange bearing to fit thinned out the integrity.

Well, I have another batch en route from the machinist and expect them in hand next week, so if you need a replacement, let me know.

Also, I think the flange bearing is too big a hole, BUT I think there is sufficent material to have the rack drilled out to accept the "top hat bushing" that are used on the C hub and steering block kingpin. The CF will rotate really smoothly on those little bushings and should show no wear in the long run.

Great news! All of the last batch has SOLD OUT and is shipping today and tomorrow :up:

Even better news is for those of you who missed out, I have another 2 batches on order (16 pieces total) and i will hopefully see them in a week or two.

Thanks for all your support guys! Please be sure to post up your setups and feedback when you have the chance.

I got a trip coming up and need to clear these out.

$22 USD each shipped in the USA. Get them while you can as I don't think I will be having these made anymore.

Please PM for more info. Thanks
