    The SLR kit dose look more fitted, to what I want. plus it is cheaper. It is just a thought for now as my car is years away from running again.
    Solution:

    Hire driving coach to teach you how to hill climb without using much steering wheel.
    Add enough power to steer with right foot


    If a aftermarket steering rack is desired for ridiculous short ratio its smart to just buy one/have one made: there are companies that produce racing ratio racks for other manufactures applications: ask them. Popular with rally cars: evolution/STi. 1.2 turns lock to lock is avail to bolt on to those cars; some money would be able to procure a flaming river u joint setup to connect from any chassis to any rack and some more money would let you mount the rack to x member and setup the tie rods to work

      I just searched around and found that SLR also sell spherical ball joints for E30/E36/E46 arms. The SLR website kinda sucks, but it looks like these bearings might be the ticket for affordable roll center correction. No price on their website though.

            With something like this on my 95 m3 rack I'd be roughly 1.5T lock to lock. get a z3 with a quickener and you'd be at around 1.35T LTL...........I might buy one of these hahaha
            how difficult would it be to put one of these in-line with your steering rack?

            sounds like a load of fun to drive LOL

              Not sure, you'd probably need a new shaft to replace the stock one and some flaming river splined sleeve to match. Just metal......haha

                The wisefab kit is awesome for drifting, best part is the zero Ackerman. I wouldn't recommend it for anything but drifting, pm me if you want more info about it. My brother 4ce30 and I bought the kit a couple years ago and both love it.

                  I can't see why in a hillclimb you would ever need to cross your hands over. Which you should really never do any how, you should be shuffling your hands.

                  Get the e36 rack first and see how that is for you. Though it's only like a 20% actual change (IIRC) from the e30 rack, it feels MUCH quicker. I suspect it will satisfy you (in combination with a smaller wheel). If it doesn't, THEN look at more extreme options.
