Hi, does anybody know anywhere provide the power steering kit for Elise? I's too hard to turn the steering wheel especially when parking.
Thanks.

You might be able to put a bigger diameter steering wheel on it for more leverage using a hub adapter. But really, it's one of the lightest steering cars ever.

No such thing

Try two things though - make sure your tyre pressures are correct (low tyre pressure is bad for a lot of reasons but also impacts steering effort) and also don't try to turn the steering wheel when stationary - by this I mean always have some movement (forward or backward) as this will significantly reduce steering effort.

Hehe, Actually, we're investigating it for our XP car! Blasphemy you say? Well, 11inch slicks don't turn very easily, esp with alot of caster. Actually, the problem is steering speed for auto-x. If you watch any of my videos, I shuffle steer to get the car around the course. The elise has a relatively slow rack. Our car has the sport rack, but it still is slow side-to-side. Curious to see if an S2000 rack will fit, then shorten the steering arms to make it faster.

This can´t be real, you posted this to pull our leg, right? Right???

ooh ooh ooh, I wanna play! ...perhaps you're also interested in:

-a heated/cooled seat kit
-Electric Sunroof Kit (but only for the Hardtop, because let's be honest....it just doesn't make sense on the soft top). Wireless Remote control optional
-Headlight Wipers
-Cruise Control Kit
-Smoke Screen and Oil Slick dispensers (alla James Bond) from the rear. Ok, this one may be a gimmie, some people have already done it, although unintentionally.

Mmmm...freshly brewed sarcasm to start the morning off right.

well, I do not mind my Elise has no power steering, I can cope with it. It would be better if it has power steering, especially when I hear the complaint when some girl try my car.

My 5 ' 2" girlfriend can handle it! Hopefully you don't let any girl drive your car. Think of it as a way to keep it all to yourself.
