Current working's X8 Knuckles

Recommended Posts

So as some of you on here know i run Ciscokids and as of late i have been rather lazy to produce my own parts, I have been working with other companies to produce item's for X8's

Like Superpro and now Acostal. The reason for this is why reinvent the wheel and why should i design something when i can get a specialist to. AKA im the Supreme of the car world :P JK i dont vape.

 

anyway just drumming up interest as i have kept this pretty hush hush and only told a couple of the aussies about this and even less have seen this picture.

here is the adjustable knuckles for X8's acostal are working on. these are just the 1st design, plan on adding a couple other features to this.

 

for people who dont know acostal, the company is run by Stewry Bryant, probobly not the most biggest name in drifting even here in aust, but known for his suspension design and just going big/sending it

the design is adjustable akerman

anyway, i will keep you in the loop if you are interested. also looking at other item's like LCA's and Castor arm's but starting off with knuckles 1st as i need them.

God I'm so hype on this. I have absolutely no need for it, but will probably end up buying for the sole reason of supporting a company that finally cared enough to release something for these stupid cars.

My biggest question is, given that I drive my car A LOT, longevity is a huge determining factor for me. The main lower ball joint on the LCA looks welded in place. Are the heims serviceable? Does Acostal use universal joints or will I have to contact Acostal any time the joints start to wear out?

Pretty sure there clipped in there like his others and universal item. but will double-check

Also the same thought, I was going to stick with stock arms extended and just average knuckles with akerman. but now thinking i might just go there and be done with it. as to be honest i CBF developing new front tension rods to use stock items LOL.
