When I see some one seat speedsters, the steering wheel appears to be in the middle of the car, directly behind the engine.
Am I seeing this wrong and the wheel is off to the side?
Or is there a process to have a steering wheel directly behind the engine?
Back in the day different center steering gears for single seat racers could be bought, but nowadays they may have to be fabricated from other parts - here's a thread showing how Mark Herdman in Australia builds his twin engine single seated racer: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/506218/513865.html?1422564948
And, it seems to me that the steering wheels are lower to fit a seat mounted almost directly on the frame, with the gas tank behind the seat, not the seat over the tank as in a street T.
Was everntyg just shortened? Or am I not seeing these correctly.
Thank you for posting that link Roger. I'd forgotten all about that beast
Many of them used a steering box out of a Franklin and modified them for center steer. I have 3 of these, all modified differently for the same purpose.
