Woodward CF series,
Power Steering Racks for Road Racing.
The Woodward CF series is the revolutionary answer for racing applications where packaging requirements previously dictated a reliance on power racks of the passenger-car type, with their limited potential for performance at the level required in professionally built race cars.
pure racing design based on our more than 30 years experience and
manufactured entirely in our own plant, the CF group constitutes
the broadest selection of racing power steering racks offered
anywhere in the world.
Several models are currently FIA homologated as original equipment.
The CF design platform encompasses THREE PINION ANGLES, SEVEN GEAR RATIOS, TWO PISTON SIZES, and a PRACTICALLY UNLIMITED RANGE OF PINION LOCATION. All combinations of these are available in LEFT or RIGHT HAND and in FRONT STEER (rack ahead of the front wheels) or REAR STEER (rack behind the front wheels).
All utilize the high-capacity, hyper-responsive Woodward servovalve, proven for decades in winning cars all over the world from Eldora to Le Mans. CF power racks are custom designed using 3D CAD modeling to conform to your chassis geometry and available space.
basic layouts listed on pages 4, 5 and 6 are starting points.
