Untill this 100% going ahead, then you would be better off waiting than sending me your pinion. If you decide to strip the rack, make sure the 4 rings on the pinion are not damaged. Do not wipe off all the fluid from the pinion, but do store it sealed well with something like bubble-wrap.

1/3 of the cost of the product will be needed as a deposit.

Where ever the customer lives depends on the shipping costs.

I am now taking deposits of €87.00 for the 15 – 19 units range.

Currently there are 9 people that have expressed interest in the Quick Steer power steering pinion.

When I have received deposits for 10 units the pinions will go into production.

You will be contacted to send your pinion to be upgraded.

Once the upgraded pinion is ready to be shipped, I will require the rest of the payment which is €172.00 + shipping cost.

Payments to be sent to PayPal account : martinjpod@eircom.net

Please leave your user name along with your full name, address, email address and phone number so I know who has made the deposit.

Once at least ten deposits have been received I estimate about a week turnaround, but don't hold me to that because this is first for me. It would depend on if the manufacturer was busy.

Harper you are in a good posistion because you have a spare pinion, you could send the pinion near the start of manufacture and not worry about having the MR2 off the road.

Are you still interested in the quick steer pinion anto300zx ? The more deposits are paid the quicker these pinions can go into production.

I'm still looking for more MR2 owners to join in on this group buy.

This is the only rhd quick steer pinion for the SW20 power steering rack in the world. A very rare performance part for your MR2's steering.

Re: Quick steer pinion 11 Years, 3 Months ago Karma: 141
Yesterday I asked Mr2boost who is in the US if he had any video footage of his converted lhd MR2 with a quick steer pinion. Here's what he had to say.

"I am sorry, but I do not.

BUT, my son-in-law has a stock 1991 MR2 turbo that is exactly like my 1991 MR2 turbo (well his is SMG & mine is CR & his has a slightly different stereo & his has fog lights - other than that all the same options).

We auto-cross regularly & the benefits of the pinion in AX is dramatic. I know I prefer to drive mine over his because it is easier to slalom with mine (& he agrees). It takes the lock to lock turn from around 3.5 turns to around 2.6 turns & the steering "feel" is better too.

Also, I hope to get a GoPro camera soon & I will then post up some video showing me in the AX & then him & show how the steering wheel is moved back & forth. So, thanks for the idea.

But, sorry I don't know of any videos off hand & mine will have to wait till around Christmas probably for me to get the GoPro.

Daniel".

This is what Blue Bomber had to say on mr2oc.com about his lhd quick steer pinion.

"I've got a quick ratio pinion, too, and it's one of the best mods I've done to my car. Makes the car feel so much more agile and responsive. If you've ever driven a Mazda3 or 00+ Celica, they're very similar in ratio."

Again I would like to thank the people who have paid their deposits and in full for the upgraded pinion. Also for being patient with this group buy. I have not forgotten about you.

Come on the rest of you people that are sitting on the fence. We only need a few more to make this happen.
