Thanks! My car was already dialed in with the old setup but it would almost drift itself which was still fun but the predictability made me look for more...power, or so I thought. Now with the new quicker, lower ackerman knuckles and the reduction of caster with the new LCA / pro coil over top plate, the car wants to accept my input more instead of having it's own happy trajectory. Being able to throw it so much harder and sustain the drift down the straights longer means that I am using wide open throttle so much longer than ever before, so I am drifting with more speed, angle and smoke. Bottom line is the car is more exciting to drive.

In the video I am just getting to know it again but Kado gave me backwards entry training, and it's way out of my comfort zone. I can throw 90 degree entry intuitively but to do what kado does, it's counter intuitive. It feels like your falling off a cliff to me right now so with the new setup I have a lot of work to do to bring my driving level up to the cars capability. Initially it felt very different, but it is growing on me quickly and I can tell there is way more room to push the limits of my car and it's little stock turbo.

$400 for the knuckle mod only.

You should use our tubular LCA with these IMO

This is why I love everything you guys make. You are always making mods that everyone wishes someone would make. I think learning how to do backwards entries is like when you first learn to drift, you try to correct at the first sign of losing traction which can cause you to understeer and plow into a wall.

I think a few more runs and you will have it down in no time since your car is setup so well. It's probably going to take me a lot longer especially with no e-brake :/

hey dan how much faster dose this mod make the rack in relation to the old mod. thinking road racing on this and less hand passes would be beneficial to more than just drifting along with all the other suspension mods you have on the market... know what im getting at here??

4:36 until the rest of the vid....... I need this.


I know you said your S15 with stock power has no trouble working with angle like this, but what about a stock powered Z? Angle like that looks like a whole lot of fun.
