Steering - I want to go backwards
Posted 02 June 2011 - 02:30 PM
I want ridiculous steering angle so im ordering knuckles this check but was wondering do the s14 inner tie rod spacers work on x8? From the looks of jeffs car I will also have to
A.bang my frame in
B. Notch the frame
Even with zero offset wheels I was rubbing frame in x8ofdeaths car

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

XM tension rods would be fucking nice
Bang the fuck out of the inner fender towards firewall and bang the frame rails a bit.

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

I'm wanting like 64 degrees
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.
