Struggling again with my lap top so apologies for multiple posts. I\'ve now reverted to my phone!
We\'ve decided to junk the RX8 steering rack after connecting it up to a battery and seeing it go straight onto right full lock. Our plan was to use a stand alone electric power steering controller but in my eyes trusting one of these is something I decided I couldn\'t do. We\'re now fitting a Mk3 MX5 rack which is a conventional hydronic type.
I\'ve enjoyed making dash and I\'m really happy with the results, just need the wiring sorting now and I can get it flocked/painted.
Dry sump wasn\'t straight forward as well. We expect the std pump to pump a lot less than a conventional pump but when tested it pumped double which limited our dry sump pump choice. We opted for a big pace twin scavenge pump which meant we could use the std pressure pump.
More pictures to follow soon.
Cheers Martin

Looking great, good work :)
Power is nothing without control. Weight is enemy of performance, handling and braking.
