Default Quick Ratio Steering Rack

Is there a quick ratio steering rack available for the 04 STI? Something similar to the ratio of the EVO?

Rev-labs makes/made one. That's a grand I think. There are also quickeners you can get. I've only seen 1.5 and 2.0. A 1.5x quickener gives you I think a 10:1, which is really quick. The rev-labs racks are 12.5 and 11.5:1.

I don't know if you can get them still though. google gets me nothing.

I knew you could get something somewhere like that. I checked primitive, rallitek, vtsc, and some other places before I realized I should be studying. Oh wait.

another company made a wrx steering column that changed the ratio to evo standards, but made the wheel much stiffer. It was not the full rack just the steering column and i saw it about a year ago on these boards. I think it was only around 500 with a core change. I would search the vendor announcements because i think thats where I saw it.

Alas, Crucial no longer sells them... Mostly because they weren't selling. There's another place to get the steering columns though, Lands End LLC or something. Or you might be able to get Crucial to do it for a single order if you e-mail them.

The quickeners are made by L&E Fabrication out of Colorado. Last I heard they didn't reccomend they are used with the STi becuase the modifier on the already faster STi rack makes it too quick.

The reason I asked is I drove my brothers EVO and did a lot better time on his car and the only real big difference I think is the ratio of the steering rack.

Yeah the big difference is the rack, oh, and the motor, and the turbo, and the suspension, and the differentials. Didn't Subaru used to make the EVO, no that was the Justy

Usually I avoid such flippancy, but geez.

hmmmm,

The question is, when will someone release a quick rack for the '05+ STi?

Rev-lab ain't no more. Rocket Rally in Canada sells the quick steering rack for $1,800 U.S. Dollars. You might find them cheaper used on the forums but they go quickly.

I purchased the L&E fabrication quick steering column which is 11:1 and goes for $724 (you get $200 off if you send them your stock column). This unit is for WRXs only and not the STI, though.

Hmm, Rev-lab states that Patrick Richard (of Rocket Rally up here in B.C.) used their steering rack in his rally car...but one can assume that since Rev-lab is no more...Patrick and Rocket Rally have found another supplier.
