Power steering question

Where does the electric pump get its feed from? Is it linked in with engine revs?

I noticed on my rally car on tight bends or around a chicane where there is low revs
that the steering gets very heavy.

Is there any way around this? Direct feed from battery or something.

I was thinking about a quick rack and Corsa setup myself.

The last day I was out I had a civic cought on the stage, we came into a sq right,sq left around
bales and he was gone off up the road when I was still hanging out of my steering wheel and swearing.

I've noticed recently when i've borrowed my brothers saxo for auto tests that when you turn from lock to lock (S'ing around the cones) when you turn back from full lock it goes really stiff and then after that initial stiffness the power steering is back. I think it is all with the fluid changing direction and having to travel a long way through the pipes myself. In a word it's pants! No pas all the way used to love my rallyes steering.

I don't know what spec the guy is running as the spec hasn't been given. I was just saying that the non pas set up was the right set up for me.

I think corsa b power steering would be the way forward Dave. Much lighter item too and adjustable on the switch, this is certainly what I'll be doing!

Yea, I'm going to gather steering and suspension bits and do a little stage 2 build over the winter.

I never liked the big pump hanging out over the front and the two pipes going across the gearbox
are always in the way and look untidy.
