Seems I opened Pandora's box here, so would just like to pose a few questions

Are we all suffering tall poppy syndrome here ?

Isn't this a forum of learning, exploration and much unlike many forums I have visited one where diversity of thought has delivered innovation and solutions?

Are a BMW or Subaru rack the last word and everything else just wishful thinking?

I agree with Tai, loosen up people, if it fails it fails, and there wont be any need to say "I told you so" rather step up and say "Good F*cking Try"

I will take my shirt off now and you can all aim those knives at the calluses on my back, I'm pretty thick skinned.

John

I reckon it's great for people to try new things. There may indeed be other or better solutions. But, the Subie solution works. If you want a proven solution, use it. If not, pioneer something else. It's all cool.

I don't think my Z needs power steering at speed....it doesn't. I run about a degree neg camber and a couple or so pos caster. Not crazy alignment by any stretch, but with 235/40R17 tyres, it is heavy to park. That was about the only problem I wanted to cure, as it made the car less fun at low speeds and parking...that's about it. The subie rack did the job I wanted done.

Cheers boys....modifying cars is a bit like leggo...you can make whatever ya fink of!

Wow, Kato, $700 is a pretty good price! I had been told that it would be much closer to the 2k region so I had rules it out until i read this thread.

Well I've said my bit, I'll be keeping an eye on here just on the off chance that someone figures out something amazing.

I hadn't really considered PS for my Z but after the weekends Gymkhana having it would have been nice.

I have not looked at the dimensions for comparison but I did have these links in my Z folder.
Maybe one of you guys with the required measurements could check if they are usable
