I seem to remember this being a quicker ratio upgrade. Am I remembering right?

The A-10(HL510) is the closer ratio steering box, the pitman arm needs to be drilled out(if memory serves)

I gave an A10 box to Jacob not too long back.

Almost wishing I would kept it for the 210.




The A10 I had spun on a dime. Really quick to flip a bitch.

Thanks for the clarification. Not sure how I got it in my head it was B310.

How about this; I kind of remember someone saying ZX steering arms are shorter and give quicker response. True or false?

Knuckles. And they have another issue that can be a problem but can also be overcome... I don't remember the issue though.

The knuckles will work(if memory serves),but you will need to mod(the knuckle is tapered or something)
