View Full Version : JDI Performance Cut & Shut Knuckles

12th September 2012, 11:06 AM
Have been getting Jake to do mine and all my friends knuckles for ages now. Very well known in the VIC scene and have even had a couple of people on here contact me about them so i though why not sell them. I will start off by saying these are super strong, can say this myself as i hit a gutter in the MA61 with these which led to a snapped tie rod end and it bend the knuckle about 45 degrees without the weld showing any signs of breaking. Jake has also previously had these x-rayed. We are also looking into cams approved bolt in cages but this probably won't happen till next year i'd say. If anyone has any other fabrication work needed feel free to message me. From cooler piping to exhaust. Cages, as extensive as you want them (this is what Jake specialises in). Custom engine fitting can also be arranged. All knuckles come with akerman correction for even further improved lock. Another feature is steering ratio is greatly improved, steering inputs are reduced severely.

These are for 'track only'. All Knuckles are change over

Possible to do 86 steering arms without the ackerman taken out? Just want something shorter than ps arms basically.

James, Jake also has that overlap there so there's more to weld together so he doesn't want to butt them together for safety reasons. I daily drive these and i doubt you'd notice the difference, as with normal daily driving you're only turning the wheels half a turn at max, you don't really get into that offset too much. In regards to pricing it's all in the name of being competitive. Needs to be the same price if not cheaper than ps arms otherwise people won't bother, though for drift seriously these are ridiculous, in all the wet roads/hairpins i've encountered i've never looped.

Nah that's fair enough. I'm going to be doing a few circuit sprints and am more after the quicker steering rather than the extra lock, and don't have the option of having a quick rack and keeping the p/s unfortunately.

Do you need a spacer to run these with 14's? I fitted these up and having problems with rack end hitting rim, anyone shed some light?

^^ would like to know the same thing, I'm running ps knuckles and a lock spacer atm and am almost hitting now.

Wouldn't mind upgrading to these eventually, also would I have to run longer rack ends as I'm almost out of adjustment on the passenger side now.

Apologies for the late replies guys, finally back and will be on here regularly again.

I would go as far as removing the lock spacer and just running the knuckles, i can't really confirm on whether it will hit or not though. I run a 14x8-15 so the offset is pretty damn low, i haven't had problems. Would really depend on what offsets you are currently running.

Sam what rack ends are you currently running?

I'm running stock rack ends with 86 tie rods, also have a pair of ra60 rackends which were to long with the rackspacer.
