It's like ridding a bike lol
Conversion is a drift must have.
Drifting an altezza is like drifting a ae86, full speed opposite lock and hope you have enough power to see you through the corner.
If you want to drift welded diff is a must

I had no problem on the West track of Anglesey in the dry mate.... It really surprised me. Once your carrying enough speed you'l be ok

Also the standard tez lsd works just fine!

Ahh thats good to know mate. Have to be up on the revs to get the power on but il air the tires right up and try pick up the speed abit more. Thanks.

Also does anyone know what is envolved in getting a better lock on the tezz?

Trust me welder is a must if you want to learn fast, I can drift the torsion but the welder makes it feel more natural, when power is limited.
Lower the suspension put the rear camber as close to 0 as possible.
If your running standard wheels 25-30mm spacers on the front to clear lower arms.
Spring washers between tie rod and rack is all I have at the moment.
Japspeed are running a jz powered is200 next year tried finding out what they using.
check my build thread if ur handy with a welder you can mod the knuckles

Yeah iv heard it makes it alot more comfetable and its easyer to feel the car. Iv just changed all mine to two degrees all round but can soon drop the backs to 0 :). Iv got rotas on there atm 8.5 wide on the front with 20mm spacers. I will let my mate know this and see what he can do:). Yeah would be intresting to know if you find out:). Thats great thankyou mate :)
