Right, I had a chance to test fit these and here are the problems that I came across from my point of view.

Image

Image

You have at least 3 things stopping you from getting more lock.

First is the coilover support bracket, which as you can see I have filed away to get more clearance.

After that you have the droplink nut and the tension rod getting in the way.

My plan is to try and flip the rod ends left to right, so you have the kink to clear the lower arm. Then tap the inside of the lca that the droplink goes though and you should gain a bit more clearance.

Dave, possible alter the design to have more clearance

Image

Also if you can drop the tie rod lower, you can also gain more clearance and reduce bump steer

Image

Not too bad for a first run though. Car feels bloody awesome. All of you guys who aren't after too much lock can safely go with these for daily driving. The handling is pretty damn good. For drifters....more work is definitely needed

well pete good to see you have them fitted. thanks for the pm letting me know of the issues you were having before posting here. :) rite ..... they are made to the drawing spec you sent to me with 100% compliance. ive checked every dimension. if you give me a drawing to make a part ill make it to the exact size. so maybe alter your drawing and i can make exactly what you want. im kind of puzzled here.how did the russian lads use them knuckles from figs without having to alter them? have had feedback from 2 lads drifting tezzas and they have had no problem whatsoever and didnt have to touch the knuckle with a file. maybe you could let me know what you want to do. i think you are getting confused with their purpose. they are quick steer knuckles not extra lock knuckles. as ive said previously the extra lock is next to work with. any redesigning and altering of part i will gladly do. just let me know what it is that you want me to do.

Haha. I think you misunderstood. The knuckles are fine and awesome. No work required to the current ones. :wink: Leave them as they are.

I am already jumping ahead and thinking of ideas for ones to get more lock, hence the little explanation above to keep you in the loop. Ive got a pretty different suspension setup from standard ;) hence some filing was needed.

I will start working on a new design over winter and get you to make them up

I got a set from Daveo about 3 months ago, try contact him via Facebook https://www.facebook.com/lexi.break.3
Failing that, pm me for his email address.

They're absolutley awesome and coupled with a 'wheels in motion' geometry settings, the handling and turning is sharp like a sports car should be!
Main thing I found when fitting them:
It's necessary to have height-adjustable suspension as the effect of putting these on will push the hub further up into the wheel arch. ie. The car is going to sit lower after installation; I had to raise the height of the springs on my coilovers to get the car back to the pre-installation height.

Looks like I'm not the only one two years too late to the party... Does this guy still make the knuckles? Interested in the second set that reduces/eliminates Ackerman.
