Steering rack and Turbo fitted to fit rotary hillclimb racing car

The steering rack did not come with the chassis when I purchased it so I had to get a steering rack to fit the chassis. The steering rack is available from Van-dieman but the cost was a bit out of my budget so I did some research and found a steering rack that would do the job. The only thing was that it had to be modified to fit the chassis, the main rack shaft needed to be shortened and the main housing needed to be lengthened to fit into the area on the front of the chassis. The photos show the modified rack bolted into the chassis, this was a major component that I needed that had to be modified correctly so the steering geometry was not compromised.
