There is also a very large "dead center spot" where you can move the steering wheel left or right but it doesn't move the wheels.
The power steering is fine at lower speeds, but there seems to be way too much boost at higher speeds. Do you have any ideas how to change that? I've read some different ideas, from lowering the voltage that goes to the power steering using a resistor, to putting a thickening agent into your power steering fluid (that sounds dangerous / could damage the power steering) - but I've also heard it is relatively easy to swap in a power steering rack from a different car.
Ahhh, I'm tracking. I agree it is fairly non responsive steering; for me it still doesn't warrant that level of a change. If there was a quick, bolt-on solution I'd be interested but not that much of an involved solution. Again, I'm not tacking my ES to the track every weekend.
