I train my passengers to push as hard as they can with there legs. 2000 foot drop seat belt not a factor.

The road is shale and cuts tires like crazy, plus its very rough and washed out. I have three sets of wheels and tires ready to rock. I always match per axle.

Damn Son, What if you met one of those loggers on the way up, or hung one of those trees with a front rim... OH WAIT, I do the same thing...If you had Wicked Built Steering you can do the same thing with one hand! nice run..."When in doubt, Throttle out!" EIFINO!

If this is the type of riding you do most of the time, I wouldn't worry about power steering. At the speeds you are running power steering is not needed. Slow technical driving is were I see the true benefits of the uni-steer.
Nice video !!!

Sorry, but i would have to disagree some.

It keeps you from Dieing , in a high speed crash , caused by a rut,rock,or any smaller obstruction that could jerk the steering out of your hand without power steering . IMO

EPS high speed

You guys are both right, its easier to steer at high speed but I have to keep a loose grip as the road is cut from rock with lots of ruts and potholes, the wheel jerks hard often.

I would agree as long as you upgrade the rest of the components when you add power steering. I think that if you do the power steering you need to go ahead and do the Rackzilla and HD tie rods along with it. If you "just" have power steering and hit one of those "steering wheel jerker" ruts or bumps and don't upgrade the other components, the force will be transferred into your tie rods and steering rack, busting that instead. That to me would be a much more catastrophic event at high speeds than having the wheel jerked out of your hands. You can at least recover from that as opposed to the other. I think with small bumps and ruts you would be fine with just the power steering, but if we're talking about "ripping" your hand off the steering wheel where you can die, than I think adding all the components together will be the only thing that saves you.
