About Steering Rack Powers
A steering rack is an up to date version of the steering gearbox that was popularly used in older models of motor vehicle. This rack, through its co-ordination with the pinion, interprets the directional input from the steering wheel and uses it to either pull or push the vehicle’s front wheels into the driver’s desired direction. In simple terms, the steering rack is responsible for converting the steering wheel's rotational movement into linear movement in order to turn the vehicle’s wheels.
Although manual steering racks are effective, even greater steering assistance can be provided by a Audipower steering rack. The power steering rack is of a similar construction to the manual version but, to accommodate the hydraulic power assisted steering system there is one important modification. To help drive the power assisted steering it is necessary to deliver hydraulic fluid, under pressure, to the Audipower steering rack. This is achieved by part of the Audipower steering rack being connected to a cylinder which has a piston in the centre. There is a fluid port on each side of the cylinder. The hydraulic fluid is sent to either side of the piston, which causes the Audipower steering rack to move in accordance with the driver’s operation of the steering wheel, producing the power assisted steering.
A fault in the Audipower steering rack will result in the steering becoming more difficult and will require early investigation.
- The Audi Type K was the first car with left-hand steering as standard. This was one of Audi’s most popular cars, especially in Germany.
- Audi has been responsible for many firsts in car design. One of the most impactful was the introduction of the dual-clutch gearbox, first seen in the Quattro S1 E2. Now, of course, they are commonplace.
- Not happy with just making one of the first automated cars, Audi even built and raced one in the Pikes Peak Hill race, setting records for speed even without a driver.
- The Audi R8 is made very unusually, and only 20 are rolled out of their factory on any given day. That’s because it's considered an honour to work on this model, and only the top 120 Audi employees are qualified enough.
- If you’ve ever looked at an Audi RS and mistaken it for a Porsche, you haven’t gone mad. The car was actually a collaboration with Porsche, and the RS has the distinctive grille and tailgate of the famous sports car.
