Built with pride in the USA, Strange lightweight Door Car Drag Racing Steering Rack is manufactured using only heat-treated high strength hardened steel and aircraft grade billet aluminum. Combine the best parts available with uncompromising standards in the manufacturing process and you produce a Drag Race Steering Rack with a silky-smooth turning radius and almost zero backlash.

The hardened 4140 chrome moly pinion rides on a system of ball-bearings that deliver a seamless feel in the driver’s hand with the confidence of durability and longevity.  The steering box housing is CNC machined from 6061-T6511 billet aluminum to be lightweight and extremely strong.

Everything that goes into Strange Drag Race Steering Racks – from the self-lubricating bronze bushings that allow the unit to move and flex smoothly to the dual lip pinion seal and heavy-duty, nylon reinforced neoprene boots that keep debris and moisture at bay – is top quality. Not only are the manufacturing specs very tight but assembly tolerances are exceptionally close. Stringent testing and active quality control keep Strange Drag Race Steering Racks smooth and durable with almost no backlash.
