    That is not drifting and will get you disqualified from competition. Ask Mike Peters.

    Tires blow when they're not stretched too. I don't understand your question.

    how do steering angle spacers work?

    its seems that when you put then on your tirerod ends that it pushes the wheels out but then when you would get an alighmnet you would just correct it with the inner tie rod end.

    it confuses me and are then even worth it?

    Right, you are dialing in your tow but when the rack pushes left or right, it is still moving more because of the spacer. It's hard to explain and I thought the same as you until I put mine in and saw it first-hand.

    the stock tie rod hits ON the steering rack. the steering spacers or washers push the tie rod outward a little so your rack can move about 5- 7mm further either way you turn the steering wheel.

    aftermarket tie rods do the trick aswell.

    modifying your knuckle is a whole different story. lol

    all aftermarket arms on our cars use either solid or close to solid joints. gets rid of your rubber mushy un responsive nasty stock bushings.

    but individually. the rucas give you rear camber adjustment. which alows you to align your car to the spec you want while at the same ride height you want. stock arms only give like a half degree adjustment.

    if you go too low in the rear and wish for less than a degree of camber. youre going to need rear toe arms aswell to get the car aligned.

    front toe rods give you more steering angle for our cars, also, typically they use a better ball joint and a pillowball joint on the knuckle side. so youre going to feel less *play* and feel the road a little bit better. since its a harder arm.

    front tension rods control caster on our cars. you cant change caster stock, so upgrading to aftermarket arms gives you some caster adjustability. also, you have about a 4 inch rubber bushing in the stock tension rods. and even stock, that bushing will alow nearly an inch of movement. going with a solid bushing here will keep your wheel from moving forward and backwards on braking and cornering.

    the only drawback ive seen from tension rods is that it makes it easier to lock the wheels up in the rain. not really a drawback just learn how to brake better lol.

    I'm in my near bone-stock S13 and "KILLIN' IT"... how is this even possible?
    Physics and 240-Law states that near bone-stock S13s can not drift. Am I breaking the time-space continuum?
