Terrafirma RTC Damper

Has anyone on here used this? Is it worth the money? Any good writeups on it yet?
Thanks in advance.

FWIW it's cheaper through Lucky 8.

I got one for my 110 with 255/85s and 2" lift. I have been running it for probably about a year now. I do like how it aids in getting back to center. My major issue with it is that I don't have power steering so it takes more effort to get the steering wheel around. Might not be great for non power steering applications. Overall it seems to be a good product though.

I thought that the general consensus was that if you needed a RTC there was something wrong with your steering, that is unless you are running giant tires.

I put one on my 90 about 2 months ago and I like it. There isn't too much resistance against turning and it comes back to center. I don't feel to much power added, if anything it just feels smoother.

The more highway travel I do the more I consider fitting one. The flex in my tire sidewall makes steering feel a little loose (and I've eliminated every other potential cause) and when spending long times on the highway for days in a row having a small amount of centre bias could reduce driving fatigue. For low speed/offroad use I wouldn't consider one; but when driving 10-14h a day it is one of three modifications I'm considering. Another is a remote clutch booster (knee pain is a problem) and a throttle lock.
