More About Appleton Rack and Pinion
Pit Stop USA is The Online Motorsports Superstore! In 1978 George Appleton founded the company Appleton Chassis. After building chassis for many years for both dirt and asphalt he decided to build a rack and pinion that would meet his high standards. He wanted to make the best possible rack and pinion but still keep the price down. He sold more than expected and started to concentrate more on the rack and pinion assembly than the whole chassis. Soon, he changed his business name to Appleton Rack and Pinion, Inc. The basic Appleton rack and pinion design is still used today. The all-in-one design makes it very compact, because the servo and cylinder are connected to the main unit. With this set up there is no need to run extra hoses and mount the servo and cylinder. Most all major rack and pinion manufacturers have began to use this configuration because of its neatness. Appleton Rack & Pinion also uses a l-1/4" hardened rack shaft and pinion gear. Appleton offers 6 different ratios ranging from 1.8 to 3.9 inches per turn. Appleton offers 5 different servo feels including double extra light, extra light, light, medium, and heavy. The driver can customize the rack to their liking or to track conditions. The rack housings Appleton offers are super light cast aluminum or tougher billet aluminum. If lighter is what you want to try, and aluminum shaft and cast housing would be great for you. The total weight of this unit is 10 pounds, which is 7 pounds lighter than the standard steel shafted unit.
