The quickest steering car that I ever drove (didn't own) was an 87 Dodge Lancer ES Turbo, which had a 103" wb like our Foci, and 2 turns lock to lock. Not only insanely quick steering, but the most comfortable and supportive bucket seats of any car I've ever driven. A true American 4 dr sport sedan.

My idea is not just a good car to race, but a fun car to drive everyday, so whatever I do it'll be permanent.

I saw basically the same unit someplace on line that's 1:1 1/2. That'd be more like it.
