Since 1989, Woodward steering universal joints have been the preferred choice of race car builders everywhere, and have won every major race and series championship in North America many times over, including the NASCAR championship. Woodward pioneered the use of caged needle rollers with a slight preload to create a joint without backlash and with noticeably lower reversing inertia than conventional automotive designs. That means enhanced sensitivity at the steering wheel, and makes even the smallest steering input more effective—whether on a superspeedway at 200MPH or sideways on a dirt bull ring.
