Has anyone put the xrv rack in a taipan?

Do you see better performance than a car rack with the xrv rack and what did you have to do to allow it to fit. (Extending front axle, cutting steering rods) any help would be awesome.

My build so far
Have the frame probably 80% done, now just all the little bits that take a bit more time and I am about ready to order some parts for it. So far it has taken since the end of December last year to get this far whilst just very slowly doing a little bit on the weekends or a bit after school, first buggy build and surprisingly not to many mistakes.

We have built a Taipan in the past & fitted it with the XRV rack & pinion.
We made the axle beam longer & some short stubby tie rods to suit.
The actual dimensions of this I'm not sure as we didn't document it.
We just put it together in the workshop.
