We’ve spec’ed out the midget gear with a 10” input shaft, 14” output shaft and 40 servo valve.
Sleek, Black Anodize Finish:
The Black Series Gen2 utilizes black anodized finish on all billet components and a black hardcoat finish on the center section and reservoir casting for the utmost in a sleek, clean look for your car's cockpit. Who are we kidding...it looks awesome in any car...especially in Victory Lane.
The Black Series Gen2 utilizes a strong, gun-drilled cross shaft assembly which helps reduce the total weight of the steering gear by over a pound. A billet aluminum pitman arm retainer threads directly into the end of the gun-drilled cross shaft.
The reservoir is built into the live hub tube of the gear. This design eliminates turbulence, aeration, and provides the most cooling of any tank KSE has tested. The easy-fill 2” diameter cap is vented and has a built-in dipstick.Positive Feel:
The four-degree valve and 20% faster lead ball screw transfers quicker front wheel feedback to the hydraulic assist to improve front wheel stability. The inboard mount improves top steering gear mount rigidity, which reduces the rotation of the gear box in the chassis when steering.
The Black Series Gen2 has the same quality and durability as the original Gen2 which racers have come to trust. Solid-model design and structural analysis were utilized to design a casting that is considerably stronger. The cross shaft tooth form is 40% stronger. The inboard mount eliminates the steering gear as a structural member of the chassis.
A #10 line from the built-in reservoir to the pump inlet, and a #6 pressure line from the pump to the pressure port is all that is needed. The return to the reservoir is internally ported. The Gen2 also has standard #4 ORB wing slider ports
Easier and Cleaner Installation:
The inboard mount makes installation and removal quicker and easier. It also improves leg-room and minimizes throttle linkage issues. The built-in reservoir and internal plumbing eliminate hoses, fittings and a remote-mounted reservoir. The built-in wing slide ports eliminate fittings and hoses — further simplifying installation.
No "Tight” Spots:
Tight spots are caused by the steering load being greater than the pressure the pump can deliver. Output torque has been increased by 15% relative to pressure. The inboard mount also eliminates binding of the steering gear due to chassis flex.
