    The 1M should be 1500 kg. In any event, the W201 is substantially lighter.

    It's currently on hold as I'm travelling Europe for a while.

    My research is telling me a w210* rack is needed. My brother suggested using an electric steering pump for pressure, his friends have used an astra's steering pump for drift cars with success. When I get back I think I will try and source some parts and test things out.

    *Edit: wrong model

    i'm using a nissan s13 rack and an mr2 electric pump. you might want to consider a w210 rack instead of a w212 due to the width.

    Yeah, that was a typo. w210 was the suggested rack.
    Why did you use a s15 SecretMachine, and not the w210?

    i went with it because of aftermarket bits selection for extra steering angle.

    UPDATE: Purchased a w210 steering rack for $100 AUD just waiting to pick it up and then the car will be delivered for fabrication to fit the engine, gearbox and new steering system.

    The fab shop will be busy for the next few weeks, but I will ask they take photos as they go. I might even see if they will allow me to hang around the shop whilst they work on the car to take pictures and learn a few things.

    I'm so excited, but still have to wait a few weeks. I'm considering trying to find a diff in the next few weeks and hopefully I can get most of the driveline done at once. I guess I have a bunch of research to do. Happy to accept suggestions, I'm obviously looking for a LSD that can handle the m113k.

    I'll keep everyone posted
