  • Handling modifications for drifting?

    Other than coilovers, what could one do to improve handling and lock?

    Stupid question probably but it would be interesting to see what you guys have done and how those parts/mods have helped.

    Cheers

      Sway bars? Do Whiteline do them for a gz20? If anyone has part numbers it would be much appreciated

      2 and 3 i'm a bit vague on, i will do some research. I have 6 down, and a couple of 8's in the shed, 5 is also on my list.

      That sounds odd.

              Only really need a rear sway bar for a GZ, pineapples arent "really" required either, and JIC no longer make their adj upper arms.... Havent been able to find the cusco arms though.

              Coils, diff, rear sway, and more lock are really the essentials, Although if you have cash to spend you might as well buy it all.

              GP Sports and SuperNow both make tie rod kits for the GZ.


              Although as stated, Tofu shop sticker works wonders.....

                I tried it out, didn't work.

                Then i plastered the door with 'em, all good i can slide better than all of the d1 drivers now

                On a more serious note:

                How hard will it to be drive "normally" with a locked diff?

                  I drive with one every day..... Have one in the 31 as well. (well a spooled diff, but same principal)

                  Quick question... will any other toyota parts fit a Z20 apart from the JZA70? Like from the newer soarers, JZA80 supra any of the celsior range etc

                  There's heaps of adj. arms for them.... but SFA for z20/A70 models...

                    I would like to know too!

                    Ok, i'll get wheelworx to weld the diff up, they did a dandy job of the KE70's numerous diffs:

                    Sitting on the RB20DET:


                    The "Just in case of defect" diffs, with the locker:


                    We were more than impressed with their monster welds for a price of fuck-all.

                      6 is unnesseciary in my opinion...unless u want to be the next boldger learn to drift on small amounts of power..u will learn alot more..

                      I guess seven as i CBF typing have a look at my mods in my members ride thread then u will get an idea of wats required..

                        Not alot really mate..

                        U can actually do a whole z30 subframe conversion from wat i believe.. but nah majority of stuff is just A70 stuff..

                        the good thing is you can get plenty of adjustment from stock arms (unlike nissan) so u dont really need it

                          does anyone use those offset nolathane bushes which have a ma70 part number? I assume all that stuff is interchangable.
                          Im looking at doing all the bushes but cant find much info online
