    yes, ive got one of the new gen racks with 3 extra teeth cut in + a lock spacer
    Yeah I hear ya Dave, my. Current car is track only for drifting so the quiafe may be up for grabs, but totally agree for hill climb or grip racing it is awesome

    Are you running super dishy wheels? Sounds like excessive scrub radius could be one of your issues.

    Everyone whos driven my car with the Quaife rack tries to run it up gutters on the entry to corners. It takes a long while to feel comfortable with it, especially correcting slides and turning in, but once you get the nack its incredibly precise and fun.

    For drifing Id also reccoment ps arms instead, just purely for the lock.

    Quaife rack is terrific for grip and I really enjoy it on dirt aswell.

    I've had a quaife rack fitted for years, infact my brother(working in UK at the time) got it for me hot of the machines back when they did their first run and promptly air freighted to me very first corner I went around I felt right at home with it, just a little heavy.

    Yeah Frak, but the heavyness is tempered with a good deal of stability.

    I dont find it suffers from bump steer worse than a normal rack and pinion. In theory it will reduce the noticeable effects of bump steer since the steering deflects less for the same relative deflection of the wheel as it compresses.

    Defend the throne then. ahaha. Im agreeing with you and building on what you say.

    Noticing a trend here, you cant post in a thread without making reference to being the original Australian AE86 guru who did everything before the rest of us. When i grow up I wanna be just like Uncle Frak Frak. Hahaha.















    No seriously, Im sick of reading about it.

    Dude, and I'm seriously sick of reading about your BS aswell. but I guess on a forum I'll just have to put up with it.

    The reason I usually mention how long I've had mine is due to people like YOU constantly bringing up how AE86's are a current fad/initial D etc.

    but you keep it up, your the man
