Yes, exactly what I mean. As he's doing a custom build, I will assume the rack's mounting points/style matters 0% because it will require custom fab to mount either way. Therefore, the style it appears he actually needs mounts the tierods to the center of the rack unit, because there is no end mounting style that could possibly work with such short play without much more major changes to the steering he probably does not want to do.

The downside of such a rack is that it is inevitably longer than a more "Traditional" end-mount rack, but since it can be mounted "out of the way" it should not matter as much, I would assume.
