Yeah the 8s rack is a beast.
I stripped mine apart for 3 reasons, eliminating all the potential electrical gremlins that I had for months on my 8, save a few lbs and I just don’t think I need power steering on a lightweight lotus.
I’ll be honest when I fixed the steering on the 8, I didn’t like it, it felt too light, definitely lost feel. Somewhere in between working and not working would be spot on.
Now, obviously we’ve not met, so I don’t want to sound condescending here or judge your abilities with an angle grinder..... but don’t be scared of being brutal.
Just keep cutting, you’ll get lots of smoke and dust from the resin, and copper fragments everywhere. You’ll know when to stop going deeper as when you hit the steel tube you’ll get pretty orange sparks.
I wasted hours being conservative with it. Don’t waste time chiselling and beating the crap out of it. You’ll get no where
The resin touches the steel tube, almost bonds onto it. So until you see sparks just keep going
Hope that helps
