steering quickner

Can you use a steering quickner without power steering, or would it kill you trying to make a low speed turn?

Re: steering quickner

A steering quickner will increase your steering effort roughly proportional the amount of ratio change. On my Riot, with the steering box only being 1.5 turns lock-to-lock (perhaps the same on a Revolt?) my steering is quite tough at low speeds. I'm actually in the process of installing a 2:1 steering quickner backwards (now a steering reducer) which will give me 3 turns lock-to-lock and greatly reduce the steering effort. I'll post pics and actual results when finished.

If you want to quicken your steering on the Revolt, I wouldn't go more than 1.5:1, but even then I would expect low speed steering to be very difficult.
