    Club Outrun dudes have a JIG for AE86 PS arms, cut and shut a bit shorter with 5 degree ackerman, ive heard 0 ackerman is no good.

    I honestly cant see the need for any more lock than PS arms and a lock spacer if you have to.

    hey man knuckles...will be available for purchase for between $250 and $300 in coming weeks... being copied by nigel petrie of NP wonderknuckles fame few ppl already down for a pair...

    hibino knuckles are basically unobtainable...the black ones he runs are only sold to sponsored drivers of the company that makes them, while the red ones are a mirror copy of ps knuckles...already tried to purchase them myself....

    Is it just me or does the welding on those Garage Clear knuckles look dodge

    Wouldn't Hibino's be 'Sunrise' seeing as its his shop..

    I would be keen on a pair of NP Wonder 'Hey Man' copy knuckles when they're ready

    I guess the welds look shit but I reckon the penetration would be good. I'll let you know after I've done a few jumps and shit

    The top one in that picture looks shit, i agree. Mine are more like the bottom one.

    you of all ppl should be of the knowledge level to know its not all about the lock characteristics of modified knuckles...

    i own some "heyman" knuckles...am yet to drive on them and prolly wont for some time unless i put a pair in the ksev...

    but feedback from ken was that the knuckles changed the amount of lock by absolutely fuck all...but the change in the way it drove was mad...

    the worse looking welds are often the strongest

    are any of you that run really short arms moving your racks forward so you still have some mechcanial advantage and don't do the out of control flap at full lock?

    because on my ke70 with power steering arms and 4mm spacers each side at full lock i have no control over my wheels because the steering arm is straight with the steering rack, it took me a while to figure this out because when at full lock i get no rubbing but after some track work i have polished bit of my chassis rail from rubbing (when the wheel is flapping at full lock)

    for reference

    Power Steering Arms have a spacing (from balljoint to tie rod hole) of 115mm

    The updated T3 arms with 2 holes are: outer hole 115mm (same as power steer) and inner hole is 90mm. Super short.

    Not sure about the ackerman angle tho.. is that just the difference between the mounting surface and the tie rod mounting surface?

    Yer I know hey, when I did that and took the picture I was like. "Cool, both pretty much same angle"

    Also note, I am still running a KE70 steering rack, lol.
