Roadster Knuckles   13 comments

This is our friend Nicks MX-5

Last weekend, while he was up north enjoying the sun, we hi-jacked it to make up some knuckles.

Getting it into the garage was easier said then done. Our driveway looks more like a rocky mountain path at the moment, so we loaded the car up onto the trailer, then unloaded it straight into the shed.

Here are the Knuckles all finished, we didn’t have any black spray paint handy, so we will let Nick spray them. Since its a street car, black helps come warrent time.

Comparison (excuse the backwards tread).

We couldn’t believe the difference the knuckles made on Monday. With the only changes to the car being; BC coilovers, a locked diff and the Billspeer knuckles, 2nd gear manji’s were no problem. With a bit of power, it would be awesome on a big track. It’s by far one of the most fun cars any of us have ever driven.

It was awesome to see Nick’s driving progress so fast throughout the day too.

Argh ….Must not buy MX5.
