Really appreciate the info Lane. I’ve always been unhappy with the vagueness of the Spyder steering. Old VW worm gear technology just doesn’t cut it. IM was better but still not great. These cars will have rack and pinion and will be much more direct. Thanks for the confirmation. I will have Carey set my car up with less aggressive suspension. My wife really liked my IM and her refusal to get in the Spyder makes me really sorry I got rid of the IM. Great info Lane. Thank you.
Phil, there is a solution to fix that. There is a rack kit available for the beam. I am awaiting arrival of this kit. It uses the European VW Polo rack. Michael McKelvey also purchased one. About 800 bucks with shipping as of now. There is a thread on this.
I'm happy that Lane is liking his coupe. It BETTER be better balanced. Welcome to the MEOC, Lane. Mid-Engine Owners Club, that is.
