Title: Rack Width?
Post by: Supe on August 09, 2018, 09:17:30 AM
Does anyone know the width of the FC RX7 rack (manual, but PS should be the same) from inner tie rod to inner tie rod?

If it matters, I'm trying to figure out how the width compares to a Miata rack, ignoring the length of the tie rods themselves.

I see where you're going, and I hope you get there.  :D

I assume this is for an FD, with the unobtanium power rack???

Nope, just looking for options in regards to lowering the rack in an FC.

Thanks.

If you could post the critical dimensions of the Miata rack I'd really appreciate it.
It'd be great if it could replace the FD rack, as those seem to be no longer available.

I haven't confirmed, but I believe it is just a tick under 26 inches between tie rod centers.
