I don't know why this turns into a fight. instead, we should make it happen.
it's unfair to ask for R&D contributions from customers and then dump the project.
We have requested MVO to provide a quote for qty of 100, 200, 300 so we know the price range but have yet heard from them(maybe they are at PRI in Indy).
In the mean time, if MVO responds, we will post more info here.
Maybe I missed it with all the back-forth the past few posts, but why is this declared dead when your post partially quoted above clearly outlines the next step?
Before requesting additional funds, it seems prudent to clearly understand the next fundraising goal.
Also, why does the Service Manual say the overall steering ratio is 18.2-20:1? To my naked eye, I can see a bit of change in thread pitch at the extremes. Do we really have a VR OEM rack?
When MVO CMM the donated oem rack by Coz, the delta between 18 and 20 was "insignificant", "unmeasured-able" thus that rack is more of a 20:1 rack than a VR. They did say there is minor wear of the rack so maybe that's the reason?? The history of this rack is unknown. Looks fine through naked eyes.
Finally, if MVO can't do this for a reasonable price, I know a guy in Lithuania that can do this for you real cheap :smile:
I warned you about the numbers, remember? .........
I didn't even realize you could sign up for phase 2 yet.
Add me to phase 2 Tim. Let's get this rolling again. A little cash for this from everyone and we can have a great product. What's $25-$50 anyways? I'm not made of money but this could potentially be huge for us down the road.
I too did not receive the pm until today and had not tracked the progress of this until having been PM'ed today about these updates. I'm in for phase 2, and would have been from the getgo. Please let me know what is needed from me.
Add me to phase 2.
I honestly think you didn't hit the send button on phase 2 or a few were forgotten about, myself included haha.
