I don't know why but they do. Don't do it.

I have S13 LCA's with Xcessive knuckles + tie rod extenders. You could chop and extend your stock LCA for the same effect.
I'm running 9's up front. +18 offset AFTER 20mm spacer. No rub. If they were a true +18 wheel with no spacer they would rub tension rod.

No frame mods, lots of hammering. Only rubs top of fender arch at full lock.

I can't find any pics at FULL lock but this setup has helped me go big on entries and saved me from spinning quite a bit.

Pretty sure I had some room to turn them further in this pic. I'll try and get a better one soon.

i don't know what my car has. But i can pretty much do a u turn in my driveway as well.

I know i don't have any angle kit stuff. I don't appear to have s13 LCA's cause otherwise i would see other bolt holes on it right?



If this is stock angle, im totally stoked at that.


But then again i don't think stock angle would have the tie rod hit the LCA at full lock. Or is that right? CAuse thats what mine does


NO rubbing.

18x9 +28 with a 15mm spacer. So +13 UP front

This is for a x8 right? Hmm... I'm gonna take some shit apart at the junkyard and see if the s13 lower control arms work on the x7.

This is all for x8 as far as i know. iirc, the x7 uses a different LCA. But don't fucking quote me on that

x7 rack, knuckles, no tie rod spacers needed
XM tension rods would be fucking nice
Bang the fuck out of the inner fender towards firewall and bang the frame rails a bit.

def need to work on the LCA before you'll need to work over the frame.

xm knuckles and 88 x7 rack with x8 inners will be more than enough to get you that far.

thats wayyyy too much angle. with excessive angle you lose too much speed. angle is sick, but slow is gay....

IIRC, most D1 cars are only ~45deg. you can run more to have more gangster angle, but that gives you some perspective on angle vs. speed.

ya you drop speed with more angle but the way i see it is that you just need to go faster problem solved!!! i have the excessive knuckles and am on a 16x8-10 and it holds dam near 90 degrees on manjis at sandia speedways back straight.

some practice and skill will get you backwards. i bet that D1 drivers who go "backwards" don't have ghetto rigged steering racks like that. go out and drive.
