I did a video of the quaife rack to show the lock to lock or rather the turn to make a full lock turn.

Edit, the car is on axle stands while i work on it underneath

Looks pretty easy to turn too. I'll assume your car is on the ground with good tires?
I will edit the post but its currently on axle stands while i work under the car. Im not able to drive it yet but pushing the car around and steering is fine and no issues

Ok I inquired about a update, and a question about machining the rack like Bobby's. It

Even with this bug running rampant you would think this would be a fast turnaround but somthing to think about. With everyone on lock down and racing coming to a halt, that now is the time put the car in the shop for repairs,or upgrades or both. I thought it would be easier to get motor machine work done, but nope thier is a longer line than if it were a covid free world.

The whole world is struggling. In the UK im struggling to buy parts and those who i do talk to have delays or just playing catch up. It took over a week to get some spray paint when normally its next day delivery.

Its not ideal but it has messed everyone up.

As for the machine work for the cover he was looking at offering it as an extra.

What do you mean machining the rack like Bobby's? Like with the cover? I thought that would be done with all depowered racks. Guess we will see next year LOL
The normal way is plug welding them like he normally does. This process is more involved and time consuming so would likely be offered as an extra ontop of the regular job

I am glad you were able to make that happen... it was all you!

Check out the attached. The column tube needs to be trimmed back to allow the space shown between lines (roughy). This is a safety feature in the event of a crash. The column will collapse, instead of becoming an impaling spear.... Check out a stock column, and leave at least as much gap as the stock one (trim back the length of the tube on the stock column housing. If you remember the splined portion of the steering shaft is setup this way (able to collapse some distance) as well.

Otherwise, kick ass man!

When’s the next group buy?
A while away yet. I have to have 30 to do minimum order or they wont produce the batch. Once these are out and being used then i might get more people wanting them so it might be a yearly thing maybe. Who knows

Finally cut it down to size so that it can be safe.

Is there any news about our order?
Is Brandon modifying the Housings for the Quaife Racks already?

Not yet no. Last speaking to him and what i have told a few others he was wanting to finish up a project he had started before he received these units. So that took priority since he did not know when the rack were going to arrive.
He wants to make sure nothing else is in the way so he can do these one after the other and not stop on them. Once i have a rough date of starting i shall let everyone know here them details for you all to see.

Considering that we have prepaid for a product and services last year, and considering the amount of people in the group buy. The amount of time to have finished said product hasn't been satisfactory to that in the group buy purchase heading. It would be nice if we could get updates in this group from Brandon at Eaton Motorworks. No offense Bobby but you have your own project and other items that you are currently making for the dsm platform.

OBTW I'm venting in the best possible way I can..

I understand how some people may be frustrated by the time its taking on this but personally when I got into this group buy I had the expectation that it would take awhile and I am not in any dire need of these parts immediately. I am just looking forward to seeing a well put together final product.

The latest update I got from brandon was this: "Currently, the only update I have is that the fixture for the CNC to machine the steering rack housings is 85% complete. I've been slammed with the summer rush & have been dealing with a scheduled workload that had been set in place prior to the rack & pinions being completed. The COVID -19 situation has interrupted part/material orders for other projects which have effected my overall schedule which has had me backed up. I would like to have an update for everyone in the next 2-3 weeks with 85% of the work completed. Once the main housing is machined I will be sending out a mass email for every order asking if they would like the pinion housing machined as well which would get rid of the upper fluid ports completely & save a little weight off the housing. There would be a $35 charge for that option if wanted.

Sorry, I do not have a better update to give you but I promise they will be done as soon as I possibly can get them done."
