Steering - I want to go backwards

Recommended Posts

Still searching but with no luck...shit I'm gonna get pwnd

 

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 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.

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.

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.

45 won't put me backwards

 

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.

Well sorry I can't afford d1 steering and suspension setups so I have to be ghetto.

You dont have to be rich to get angle, X7 rack, Xm angle kit, Good offset wheels and hammer is the key!

The XM Kit is 47 degrees the same as a Stock JZX81

 

Im getting knew knuckles on the way that will give me minimum of 52 Degrees,

 

Now to run these correctly im also getting Subaru Brumby Tie rod ends these have the same taper as stock but are 10MM longer

Now from what i have read on Knuckles im confused i believe i will need spacers like the below

Unsure if they will fit as there from a nissan but i have been told tie rods are all the same thickness but yeah unsure if true or not

 

But yeah still trying to work out everything atm
