Do you have lock spacers fitted too?
The picture of e30 with mental lock is the wisefab kit by the looks of it.. It's fully awesome but tbh you don't need that much lock, it won't make you any faster... Daigo Saito only uses modified knuckles on his D1, FormulaD cars and he usually wins, so you don't 'need' that much lock..
Your picture of the new knuckle is ok, they exist already exactly like you've designed, can't remember where iv seen them though.
Regarding spacing the steering rack.. You've got the wrong end on the stick with WHY they do this..
It doesn't give more lock just moving the rack.
The reason it's done is to overcome the issues caused by going 'over centre'.. This is where the track rod goes all the way to its full throw and goes the other way, so that when you go to steer back the other way the track rod is effectively locked.
Google search 'Over Centre' and I'm sure you'll find a better explanation, probilly on driftworks.
All the kits like DW geomasters and wisefab kits alter all the mounting mounts and pivot points etc.. Clever stuff..
The geomasters are a copy of a discontinued part originally made by GP Sports Japan.. They went bust and DW got a pair and copied them..
The wisefab kits are mental.. They Completly replace the whole hub and subframe assembly.. Most of it is handmade and very high quality, Really is a work of art, but jeez does it cost...
