I have a Uni-Steer in my current 32 Ford 3W project. Sadly :( , I have not yet driven it. I have the Vega in my 32 Ford roadster ... and it has done well for me over the years but I drove a friends 32 coupe with the Uni-Steer and it was much easier to park and navigate at under 5 MPH. Above that ... it was no better than my Vega box.

You can go here ... http://hotrodders.com/journal_photos...1456602170.jpg to see more of the project.

Again ... WELCOME

I have the system installed on my 1925 Chevy and replaced a vega box I love it and have had no problems it is very responsive and the install was easy other than making a new mouting bracket to get it in position for the Chevy.

I've got it in my 29 Coupe. Switched from a Vega box. I LOVE IT !!!

If your Vega box is mounted correctly, it should only take a short time to change over. By "short time " I mean less than an hour.

Good luck !

unisteer x rack
 
just finished installing one of these, units. Very smooth install. Feels like a different car, handling is awesome. No bump steer. and very positive feel.
Turning radius also increased. It's on a 30 2 dr sedan.
