Sunbeam Tiger New Steering Rack's

Post by vanhool1 » Sat Jan 15, 2011 11:43 am


For anyone interested we are currently casting a batch of RHD Sunbeam Tiger Steering rack's to the original specification. As there seemed to be a shortage of genuine racks we thought it was a good idea to commision a specialist to produce a batch of racks to exacting specifications. They will come ready to bolt on. The first batch will be about 20 racks and depending on interest we will produce more. We have also had some interest for LHD rack's and again if there is enough demand we will produce these as well.

We are currently at the casting stage so it will be a little while before they are finished but the earlier I can guage the interest will give me a steer as to production levels.

To register your interest please e-mail me and when I have further details I can advise.

Have you thought about offering one with a quicker ratio. While it might be a little heavier it could be better, also i see there would be a market for them within the race community where you have to run original components and cant do the MG rack mod.. this way would look stock but give better performance.

I guess the other issue is the mounting of the stock racks inherantly create all the geometry issues that make the tigers handling a little dubious which is why the MG conversion has become so popular. Still would be nice to have the oringal option.
