Gerry who drives this car had me sit in it and try out their system. You can see a lever to the right of the seat by the fan. The side rest. is hed in place with a spring loaded pin. Pull the lever, tip your head into it and roll out. Works slick. You can see the add-ons required to make it big enough to pass tech. The inside has the SFI sheet padding.

That's a great idea and something I will incorporate into the coupe.  I didn't realize he was a Rod Rider till I noticed the sticker on the window.   Trent, thanks for bringing this idea to my attention.   :cheers: Tony

Not much to add, other than we received the power steering pump (20.1 ratio) back after the changes we requested from CJR.  They also ran it on their steering dyno and gave us some valuable information on the changes we made. This will be hooked up to an electric power steering pump  and will be controlled by a wheel speed sensor and some programed logic that is adjustable from the drivers compartment.  At low speed it will have power steering and at speed it will be similar to manual steering.  The hard part was trying to get the correct torsion bar set up for the box first time around.  Tony

You have done too much road racing Tony. That is a lot of stuff for a 200 MPH LSR car.

DW, I agree its a little overkill,  but I always wanted to try and incorporate electric assisted power steering on to a race car.  The logic is done and now I need to build a small box for the board. The four small buttons on the board control the settings  Tony

Crazy! In a good way. But I assure you somebody will blame you Tony for escalating LSR into the realm of F1 :roll: :-D
