Since yours is a track car... Id be most worried about the ackerman, b/c your front wheels are what is gonna be crucial for drifting and staying in control.

But I don't know how much different the 240 rack is... and how much you have dropped your rack.. theres a lot to think about on your setup... Thats the reason I tossed the first cradle I built, I got the geometry off when i was mocking up. But I'll post on your thread, don't want to jack my build thread up too much.

Got a few things out of the way on the car.
All the brake lines are 100% complete
Wilwood Clutch master cylinder mounted.
Steering extension fully finished and installed.
Front knuckles are off, one is fully braced, and 100% welded up. 1 to go.

Front Knuckles braced and finished.



3/16" steel plate






The welds to the Cast were done in two passes, First was fusion weld ( no filler added) mainly to get heat into the cast metal and to burn the impurities out) second pass was with filler rod. The it was wrapped in a welding blanket to allow a slow cool down to keep the strength to the max on cast metal. Also got a nice piece of cast metal that popped and hit me in my eye... lucky enough it burnt my contact and not my eye.

Base/clear like the exterior. notch on the frame rail to allow a little more clearance for the 4" downpipe. Had to cut a section out and replate it. Want to do an fittings on my heater hose outlets on the firewall. Need to clearance the firewall cowl some for my clutch master cylinder reservoir. On my ls-1 harness its going to have a mil-spec connector on it so it will disconnect at the firewall. Have to weld up the big hole where the oem harness came through. Also have to install 2 more bulkheads for the fuel setup. Mainly just cleaning the bay up.

Man, those front knuckles look completely factory after you painted them. Shame it hides the beautiful welds.

its the design of the knuckle... theres a dust seal that the axle slides up into. The 350z axle is just too big (diameter wise) Either have to machine the axle or the knuckle... either or, not worth trying or making work.
Also my stock calipers will not bolt back onto the jdm sti knuckle.. unlike i was told by the seller.. told me they would swap with no issues. not the case... so it would have to be a ton of work and machine time, hub redrilled for correct lug pattern, caliper bracket modified or changed, then the ebrakes, depending on which caliper bracket i went with. then still have to machine the hubs so they would fit. Yea i'll just save the headache and do it the right way the first time.
