    dont get me wrong this setup will work but i believe an ae86 setup would be better

    no i have not drive a car with this setup.... i was contemplating doing it.. i did research.....

    an as for the adverse effects of it just have a think about what has to bee done to make it work

    every action has an equal and opposite reaction[/b]
    This seems like an emotional arguement with no evidence. If you're not going to actually contribute, "I found I couldn't get the camber/caster settings I wanted!" "The Ackerman was way off and the wheels turned in bad ratio to eachother causing heavy oversteer!".. then..

    Dude i think you should shut ur mouth if you dont have anything to contirbute, no one wants to hear your pointless banter....[/b]
    Could be good to listen to.

    I am looking in to this conversion and have collected a couple of parts for it but now im considering other wise as I do not want to get these installed and then have to take them back out because of a defect note. As drilling the hole in a lca is still a modification.[/b]
    T3 have a product, a modified castor arm I believe. To work with the AE86 with an S13 LCA. So you don't need to drill the LCA. It's also adjustable.




    To quote:

    It bolts right up ....so all u have to do is narrow the s13 control arm bushing 1mm on each side

    the price should be around $200 bucks for the Hybrid Ae86/S13 tension rods

    here his contact info:

    That'd be $200 US I'd say.. so around $260.

    Grant.

    Im looking at the T3 arms now and they seem to have AE86 ends on them.... ie: curved instead of straight like the ones pictured above....

    I sent Gab an enquiry anyhow to see whats the go....

    Dxaqta, if its the angle on the controll arm your referring to caused by the original tension rod being "wrong" then this will fix that. If its the horisontal angle of the controll arm caused by the ride height (which can cause bump steer issues), then this wont fix it, and the only way to fix that is to relocate the inboard mounting point for the LCA. which means modifying....which means engineering....if this is important for you. A lot of people out there are happy to drive around on 86's without the RCA's, but most of these people are not serious racecar drivers, and the problem with the s13 LCA angle would not be an issue for them.

    the product isn't listed on the website.

    Half the stuff they do isn't on the website.

    Kind of the nature of a place that does some more er custom things.

    Speak to Gabriel Tyer of T3 about your concerns, I'm sure he can sort something out.

    What kind of ackerman are you after? What kind of steering angle are you after? It really depends on what you want hey..

    PS, i think the T3 arms are not an off the shelf item, they are the front of the AE86 tension rod, with the rest of the s13 tension rod making up the rest. They probably make these up to order.

    You could do this with locally available product if you want to.

    Ahh I see now, maybe Gab will have something else to offer me when he returns my email....

    Thats another thing I always wondered.... regarding this set-up and the use of RCA's as I didnt think AE86 ones would be compatible, and as you reckon there are none made for Nissan then thats pretty fucked.....
