Rick,I did a similar front end including the rack & pinion. I realize bump-steer is only a minor consideration, however ... Did you consider putting the rack on the axle, rather than the frame? The steering shaft can float. Also, the track bar goes away, if one torsion arm attaches to a fixed bracket welded to the axle - a floating link on one side only. Not being critical, just following openwheel midget practice dating back to WWII.

Thanks for the input Gregg. Somebody pointed out that I could do the torsion bar arm arrangement you describe, but I already had the parts made, so I did it this way. I never thought about putting the rack on the axle. It seems a little odd. I don't think there's going to be a lot of suspension travel, so bump-steer shouldn't be a problem. We'll see.
