This truck was originally run by CORR veteran Art Schmitt. As delivered to Casey, the Howe steering rack had a 2.8:1 ratio. "It drove me nuts. I had to turn the wheel like crazy around the corners," comments Casey. "When we asked Howe for a 1:1-ratio rack, they were kind of surprised. Howe had no trouble building the rack; they just hadn't been asked to use that ratio before." The new rack makes for ultraquick steering, and Casey can steer lock-to-lock with less than one full turn of the wheel.
