  • Does anyone have anymore information on these front knuckles?

    GP SPORTS SUPER KNUCKLE Kit


    A user from Australia posted them on NICO

    Asking him for more information I got this:

    "As much as I know they are the second best items on the market being made from a mould and not cut and shut like other knuckles that are out there. Mine have a 20mm spacer built in to lower the Roll Centre. Ill get better steering agility and lock over all. Ill post heaps of picks when the time comes when im installing them etc."

    I will obviously do more research on them, but I'm hoping someone else has more information to share.

    Tanks you're the bomb.

    Have a look at Freshalloy. There is a review on there.

          Shorter steering arm = change in ackerman.... fine for drifting, but I wouldn't mess with it for a racecar.

            didnt mmdb have a thread on here in the roll center thread about this? He tracks his car both road race/autox... he had good success with it. Correct me if im wrong.

                I have 'em on my car... yeah... worries me bout the ackerman change. Though the car feels very responsive during a turn etc... it'd probably be best to modify the front knuckles (take a look at my post in the roll center thread).

                  It could change the Ackerman wrt steering angle change due to the steering arm change, but if the angle the same on the knuckle, wouldn't it be "very close?"

                          I've spoken to Brian @ MA motorsports previously. Those arms are geared towards drifting for sure.

                          I was hoping the knuckles addressed more roll center than anything else.

                          I'm keeping my knuckles stock.

                            Yeah the MA knuckles only change the steering angle, they do not affect the roll center at all (which is why his car is so high off the ground, haha).

                              I wonder what bump is like with these knuckles compared to stock? Anyone checked yet?
