I'm compiling parts for my first mini-rail project and I'm trying figure out how I'm going to mount the steering shaft to the chassis. I like the billet mounts but the only manufacturer I've found that makes one for 1 1/4" tubing is Gear One. Are there any other manufacturer's? Or are there any other type of mounts that function good and also look good?

Maybe some of the other guys know of alternates. What are you mounting it to (frame type)?

Or, you can just make a sleeve for the cross tube to increase the diameter to 1.5".

My frame will be a custom design that I'm trying to finishing up at the moment on AutoCAD. I was hoping to be done designing by now but I keep on changing things! :roll:

I run the Gear-One billet steering shaft on my mini. It fits great unlike a lot of the other cheaper models and they are the only ones that make one for 1.25". I would definately spend the money on it again if I built another car.
