Yes the KCR stiffners have been excellent , but this hop up is far simpler for those who want
to firm up the steering from now on or just like the design and neatness .
Good Job Joe  :D :D

Nice work. I bought myself some steering stiffeners so will see how they go to start with. Probably get some of these as well when they hit the shelves though  :-[

Just spoken to Joe ,the parts will be available in 2-3 weeks ,next week they are on Hols till the 5th of june ,
then they start production , Other colours available to match your servo trays , and Retail price
will be around $69 for the pair  8) 8) 8)
One other big plus with this is the M3 connection on top only needs a M3 16-20mm cap head
and fixes into solid alloy ,not those stupid Inserts ,always filling with muck,and coming loose ,
I  will order some more for my other MCD's . ;) ;) ;)

Thanks guys. 8)
As they say the kcr is doing the work also, smart idea, simple and economical solution
The Jofer is a different option for those who want something more simple without adding compenentes and that match with the rest of our parts servo tray ect.
But both do the job.
I add Some pictures, and also the new servo tray system, BeatsMe asked for this and is completed now
Is lighter and stiffer than the original, easier to remove the electronics from the car.
The complete set will cost 24 dollars more than the original.
The original is still available for those who do not want spend the additional 24 dollars and do not care need remove more screws
Will also be available the steering plate along to convert the original system to the new one as a upgrade.
