Thank You, Terry, Vince and Tom.
I just upgraded to the steering link + Tie Down Ring, I think it's a big improvement in steering stability on my RV-8. Slowing down thru 50 MPH is more stable, and I just like it better.
I can't imagine the steering link making tail wheel transition harder?
I always kept slack in the chains w/ springs to prevent ground loops when one side breaks off. I like Dan's cable upgrade too.
The tie down ring has been worth the price of admission.
