    Motor finally made its way in and actually had no issues with interference of the rack and pinion or the mid plate. Something finally went easy.

    Sorry for the delay in responding.
    Rack is set up to slope downward toward tie rod. 3/4-1" if I remember.

    Thanks NP, So was that at ride height or race height like how it sits going down the track? I was told to set it up at race height?

    Below are the instructions right off TRZ site. Mine were set at ride height before adding installing the motor.

    11. When adjusting for ‘bump steer’, you want to adjust the rod-end height to be as parallel as possible with the working angle of the control arms at race-weight and at ride height as a starting point. The working angle of the control arm is an imaginary line drawn between the pivot bolt in the frame and the ball portion of the ball joint. This is accomplished by adjusting which spacers are above and below the rod -end. Small changes from this location, either up or down, will effectively eliminate the ‘bump steer’. You will need to run the suspension through its entire travel for best results when doing this.
