What is Rack Travel?

Applied to steering, this term refers to the distance that the rack moves in a horizontal plane when the pinion is turned. Specifically, it correlates to the amount of area in which the teeth are cut on the rack. The rack can travel only as far as there are teeth cut on the rack, keep in mind that the rack does not have to travel that full distance.
