Ok I have a 74 pinto that I am going to be running on a 1/4 mile track should I buy a quick steer my cousin has one but it makes it harder to turn I have a 2.0
I also would like to know what gear you would prefer for a 1/4 mile with a 2.0 I have a 700 in second gear that should be good shouldn't it

if your running a power steering pump i probably wouldnt run a quick steer, the o-rings wont hold the pressure, but if your not running a power steering pump i would. once you get out of the pits its not that hard to turn.

I agree.. No pump and quicksteer. You need to drive one and get the feel of it. It really isn't hard once your up to speed. Plus, when you have the pump on it, you loose some of the feel of the track through the weel.

Oh by the way, I run on a 1/4 mile track and my final is 7.40. I run a 2.3 and about 72" tires on the rear. What trans do you have and what gear are you using.

If you do run a quickner be sure and use a 1.5 to 1, because 2 to1 will make it a lot harder to turn. I run a 1.5 to 1 and have no trouble with it.

When I had my mini, I ran no quickner, and no power steering. I had a built 2300 and ran a stock tranny,(the one where the shifter threads into the case) in second gear, with 4.11 rear gear in a ford 8" rearend. I ran 235/60/14's on the rear square up and pulled 7600revs at the highest. My team mate and I ran the exact setup and between him and I we took home all but 2(two)trophies in the "99" season, for both the local trackes we ran. sideways
