a rack mod I do here in shop, I had to take a rack apart to figure it out, now its just really modifying the inner tie rods that I charge a hundred bucks to do, this will give almost a half inch of additional side to side rack travel. then I shorten the steering arm for the real increase in angle, I found playing the steering arm off center a bit will help or hurt akerman. In drifting zero akerman I have found works the best but it makes the car really fast. the trick stuff really was the a arm to clear all that travel. I teamed up with a guy equally interested in this sport on the fox,s and he had made some prototypes of a arms that where 4 steps ahead of me so I came up with a plan, we stuck our heads together an until finally last week I think we found the perfect a arm for the most angle possible that is full adjustable, and isn't so strong its gona brake the k member but strong enough to not break on its own. coil over of course, extended bumpsteer kit my a arm buddy came up with to match his arms, an we sell this as a kit. still handle amazing on the track and enough angle to catch your self if you do spin out, then if you just wana drive dumb sideways you can as the picture above.
