    i like to go against the grain.......It’s not for everybody.... but when done properly they drive fine...... I’ve over 45g miles on this car since it was finished in 2014.... driven on many long high speed hauls... including 5 Virginia to Texas trips.... be an outlaw....

    For the haters of it...... to each there own...... I know how my stuff drives

    They aren't called The Friendly Suggestions of Physics.

    It isn't hate, it is knowledge.

    Cowl steering works just fine if you have very little suspension travel.

    60sracer has what appears to be a right side Schroeder steering listed in the for sale section? I had Schroeder cowl steering in a deuce roadster and I had a few problems but after I installed a steering stabilizer it drove good. I had the 8to1 box with a 17 inch wheel and 500-16 front tires and at low speeds it turned a little hard but on the highway it was fine.

    I have NEVER had any trouble with "cow" steering. As long as you remember GEE and HAW.

    My first thought; “Man, you old farts gotta get hip. “Sick Boy”. Great song by Social Distortion, man.”

    Second thought; “Wait a minute, that song is like 30 years old........I’m an old fart too......”
