Default AWESOME steering knuckle mod

alex pfeiffer is the man!! battle version baby!! OK so i have been trying to learn how to drift. I think i have been doing ok considering i am a beginner. problem was i have an sc300 and 0 angle. so i would have to be really careful with how hard i push the car. well that is no longer a problem! check out the drifts i am doing now compared to before.

before:

after:

got to say best money i ever spent. this made drifting a lot easier for me.

it shortens the swing and gives you a bigger angle when you turn.


Nice drifting.

Thats what I was wondering... From which car did the shorter knuckle came from? drewdizzle said it was cut and I doubt you can just cut it and weld it back together. It will not be strong for drifting application.

Would still like to see how his look. It does not feel safe to cut and weld. Thats 1000+ lbs pressure you are putting on those knuckles
