    I missed all of this.
    Thoes knuckles aren't going to work well. You're going to go over center and wierd **** will happen at lock.
    Test these in a parking lot if you run them.

    You're going about it the wrong way.
    The longer LCAs are right, but you need manual rack. Manual arms too, they keep the swing arc of the rod and knuckle further out and they won't go over centre. You can use spacers on the rack if you need more travel. Rack travel is the way to do it, not short pivots. Things will just get twitchy becasue nothing has any leverage.

    When you have big angle... Big sway bar will get in the way, and so will T3 tension rods. BV rods, or similar (not beefy). Maybe a TRD sway bar.

    Insaino angle in 86 is not really possible. Like Paul said before, so much stuff in the way.

    What you've done will work, but it's kinda sketchy.

    The diamonds are 15x10 with 4.5 inch back spacing ( same as supra wheels). So I'm not exactly sure what offset that makes it... Is there some formula somewhere??? Hope that helps.

    Wow, a bunch of people are making their own hoods now, I started a trend!

    I really like your vent, except for the back part, it should slant down and go into the hood instead of being raised at the back.

    All my own opinions and 2 cents'es obviously.

    ya drader.. im thinkin a bit more slanty would be better.. but this drop vent is friggin HUGE

    ~3.5 inches from the bottom of the front face to the top

    ps drop vent was made becuz of hood clearance issues with motor.. soo hood is gettin cut out and folded up so that the vent can be rivitted onto it..

    Ha ha man oh man I like the way you guys work! It's amazing what 20 cutoff disks and a BFH can do. Can't wait to check it all out - maybe at the end of April? I'll be in Vic on the 27th/28th for my son's doc appt, so hopefully there will be time to visit!
