Hahahaha.

On a side note to my previous post from the other day. Steven had a terrific idea to the "get the tie rods forward closer to the xmember" issue. I forgot I have a parts s14 back at my rents house that has a front subframe that I can modify and swap out so I can have zero downtime (not that it matters currently but it will be less time the engine is held up in the air by the crank pulley). Either way I am pretty pumped to get the subframe and do work. I will say it again that the parts car is the most handy investment I have ever made since owning s chassis'. So go out a buy a parts car if you have the room and money to do so. Haha.

I made KA specific engine hoist tabs. You should be able to bolt those on then lift the engine with the hoist. No need to jack on the pulley. They are probably still with the chains on the engine leveler.

Steve and I will be putting them through their paces at the October 6th event, but sadly not yet. I haven't had as much time on a track or driving on them period to release them for purchase. They have made the 6 hour trip from Lincoln, NE to Bartlesville, OK in one piece and look just as good as the day I made them. They steer just a speck heavier than stock at low speed but 20 mph and up they steer like stock. I need to relocate my rack to get max angle out of them. This is why I want to make another set that is without ackerman angle. A lot of Japanese drifters like the no ackerman knuckles, but apparently less ackerman results in less feedback. Bonus to no ackerman is more steering angle without need for rack relocation or Driftworks Geomaster Offset Rack Spacers.

Thanks for the follow up though!
