Not to be a dick but I think the rest of us are done patiently waiting "slacker". I think you should stop working on your shit and work on our shit now. I want electric steer and I want it now.

Excuse me Psycho, I think you have a brilliant idea. I would be so grateful if you would share your infinite wisdom on any progress on this matter. ps your an fn genius!

All joking aside, any progress?

LMAO...... Really!
Now that rear end is done and buggy is drivable. I will be starting on front.
My buddy has started his EPS, I'm going to check it out 2mrw.
Judging by your buggy, you are not looking for any fab tips! ..... More like feed back on how well it works?

Now that my new buggy is almost done I am getting ready to start updating the old buggy for the kids. I wanted to put in as many safety items as I can before I turn a 2332 over to a 16 year old. I cant tell you how many times I thought I broke my wrist or hand on having the wheel rip out of my hand.

My brother finished his tonight and you can grab the steering shaft with your hand and turn the wheels with ease.
$50 for electric steering from junk yard
$70 for control
$15 for miscellaneous parts

It is slick

First time posting on your forum. check out www.epowersteering.com. I have helped many from the DIY kind to full blown installations.

I would like to make 1 comment from the various pictures I have seen here. You should serious think about removing the ECU from the EPS. The way it is mounted a couple of drops of water can ruin your day. The ECU is not sealed around the edges and water can pool in the metal cover and short out the ECU. Don't just add sealant, the ECU will over heat.

Feel free to PM me.
