The 8mm steering plate was developed to improve the cornering speed. This steering plate has less steering response and is recommended for large asphalt tracks with long sweepers to improve cornering speed or very technical carpet tracks to eliminate oversteering in the chicanes. The bearings are factory pressed into the steering plate which eliminates play in the assembly.
When using 8mm steering plate, remove
a bit of material from the ball joints so
they do not touch each other.
