Re: Test Drove a Riot....Oh Yeah!
The issue is the steering linkage angles are really steep from the steering wheel to the steering rack. You probably feel some smooth and then it seems to "stick" which you have to sort of force it through. right? And it gets tiring pretty quickly. That is the ujoints in the linkage near bind.
I solved this problem in my Revolt by lowering, slightly, the steering mounting point when I re-did my cage work. It turns like SILK now.
Others have solved it by adding steering assist to the linkage. It's expensive ($800 I think), but those on this list have shown it works well. 1 finger turning!
Since I race, I wanted HIGHLY reliable. So I chose to lower my steering mount.
The Riot doesn't appear to be as easy to modify like this. But we intend to modify it in some way while building the "Race Riot" which is in work.
