High ratio or standard ratio steering rack?

Is anyone able to comment on the drivability of the high ratio v standard ratio steering rack? I'm used to the standard rack in my Type 2 and find it ok but need to decide what to go for in my Type 3.

Thanks

Type 4 Pedal Box in Type 3

I've modified the new Type 4 pedal box to fit in the Type 3 that I'm building. It's a well engineered item with pedals and shafts CNC machined out of aluminum billet. The pedals themselves are adjustable sideways and up and down and it's also cheaper than the existing Type 2/3 pedal box (which I hav...

Re: A Drive along the Columbia River

Very nice Eric, I fear if I tried the same thing on some of our rough Norfolk roads I'd need a gyroscopically stabilised camera. I'll try it when I've built the next Triking with the "comfort" suspension upgrade.. :lol:

Re: New Tail Section for Type 3

Having made the new tail section I've been trying to work out the best way of mounting the rear lights, which need to fit within a tube to look stylish. Having scoured the house and garage for inspiration I decided the only solution was to make some bespoke mounts out of fibreglass. The design cause...

Re: Need Advice

That's a tricky one but I would be inclined to go for the other cars section on the basis that they're likely to be more friendly than some of the Morgan owners I've met and you'll have a better day all round. The Triking engineering and quality speaks for itself so it will undoubtedly be the star o...

Re: New Tail Section for Type 3

Thanks for the kind comments Eric and Richard, I do have some photos of the various stages of the tail section build, I'll put some together over the next few days with a brief explanation of what went on. As regards the rear lights, I moulded those shapes in the tail specifically to fit in with the...

New Tail Section for Type 3

Having decided to embark on my second Triking build and being inspired somewhat by Oily and what could be done to a Triking, I thought it might be interesting to mould my own tail section. I wanted something reminiscent of pre war single seat racing cars with lots of curves although I was probably a...

Re: TRIKINGS in Yorkshire 2019

The meet is probably best described as a full Triking workout with no part left untested - even my windscreen wipers got a thorough thrashing! The phrase "up and down dale" is very apt with miles and miles of twisty roads then long straight runs, mega steep hills, rapid descents and even - for Mark ...
