    Whats wrong with that.?? You could redrill the castor rod holes futher in if posible.. Won't make a masive difference though, I would imagine..

    And that was bound to happen any ways..
    Less ankerman means your outside wheel is gunna pull as much angle as you inside one..

    Get your car sorted man... I NEED FEED BACK...

    I want to make some for my car but waiting to see if i should alter the design a bit first..

    the only proper cure is less wheel offset or spacers, neither of which i can do at the moment. the design looks fine.

    seriously ive got more than enough on my plate atm, can barely even sort a fuel pump out, feel freee to try them in urs first if you want.

    Cars still getting built...
    And I just plowd up the arse of a pergoet on the way home so now I have to fix my daily.. So even less time/money to spend on my toy..

    I have two spare set of knuckles here.. Might make a pair the same as the ones I gave you and maybe a less corrected pair.. See how things go...

    Its AMAZING that no ones here has actually comented on the way there car drives with altered knuckles... Sorta pointless thread if no ones gives input..

    Added quote if your eyes are broken Redneck.

The difference in lock is that you'll get to max lock faster and have quicker steering.

    ^^^^^ My comment was aimed at the fact this thread is now 5 pages long and there has only been limited imformation on how this mod actually effects the way the car handels and drives...

    Matt.. your comment only indicates what altering the ankerman does at a mechanical level.. You don't say anything about the way car feels...

    That is what I was getting at.

    didn't really read all the pages but...

    0 ackermann means when drifting, the chasing wheel isn't dragging at lock. however, when you're driving around a roundabout, since your front wheels are traveling around a different radius (in much the same way we have open diffs), your outside wheels is going to be somewhat pushed around the corner... combined with your locked diff - FUN TIMES!!!

    also when you weld cast steel, the point at which the heat disperses into the cold zone the cast will fracture. make sure the ones you get are heat treated
