I got the manual rack. I would order the same way again!
got manual, and it's much easier to steer than the factory setup

Same here...

Power Rack here, love it. It drives great...
CFster. why are you switching to power??
Well, the manual rack is 4 turns lock to lock. The power is 2.25.

I find that with 4 turns that I have to do a lot of "steering" - not sure what other way to put it. I'm also afraid that if I got it crossed up on the highway I'd be in trouble - I'd have to do a lot of sawing of the wheel to save it. Bear in mind this is a street car only. I've also found that to run the caster I want to run, the steering gets pretty heavy and jarring.

With power steering (especially with the Heidts adjustable valve), I should be able to dial in how heavy my steering is, and crank up the caster as much as possible (caster is desirable).
