Corvette C6 Pro Angle Kit

Achieve Unparalleled Drifting Performance

Introducing the FDF Pro Kit, the pinnacle of engineering for the C6 Corvette's front suspension. Designed with the demands of professional drifting in mind, this kit delivers unrivaled steering angles and precision control, thanks to its innovative rack relocation. The Pro Kit's debut on Josiah's C6 Corvette led to a spectacular victory, winning both the first competitive event and the high-roller series championship on its first outing.

Features and Components:

Steering Angle: Up to 72 degrees of lead and trail wheel angle, made possible only by our rack relocation design.

Self-Steering Dynamics: Tailored for lightning-fast transitions and effortless control, this kit endows your Corvette with the quickest self-steer capabilities Josiah has ever experienced, especially when combined with the rear grip kit also being run on Josiahs Corvette.

Optimized Grip: The speed of a drift is determined by how well the front can guide the rear. To do this, you need grip. This is a combination of perfecting the camber gain, the KPI, caster and contact patch of the tire while at high angle. It has been perfected to allow for a speed advantage without understeering and showed this well during trials and competition.

Adjustable Ackerman: The ackerman is tunable thanks to the precision Billet knuckle and shim design. Josiah’s setup with zero ackerman and a slight static toe exemplifies perfect control and steering response.

Minimized Bump Steer:  The Pro Kit has been optimized at angle, to have minimal bump steer and maintain control no matter the terrain,  the kit comes with specially machined spacers that go on the steering rack, to extend the racks ram. This part is included with the kit 

Extended Travel Range: The kit supports 2 inches more travel than stock suspensions design, demanding a minimum spring rate of 18k with sway bars or 22k without, due to the modified motion ratio.

Steering Rack Conversion: The Steering rack has been changed to now use an E46 steering rack. On Josiah's car he uses the silver/grey tag rack. The racks location uses a unique bracket that fixates it in to the factory leaf spring Pocket of the subframe, mounting it here has relocated the steering rack 4.75” back and 5.5” down. A dramatic move but a very necessary one as the factory C6 racks are infront of the engines crank pulley. The factory rack is compromised at high angle and will often result in wrecking the racks seals within a year of competitive driving. This kit resolves this problem by aligning the forces and keeping them linear with the steering rack. The steering rack relocation comes with a rack adaptor to connect it to the factory steering column. The only modification required is the the left side header will need to be custom made or modified to clear the new steer wheel shaft location. Keep this in mind when considering this angle kit. The subframe will also need a couple of spots ground for the E46 power steering lines and rack fitment (this is minor modifications)

Premium Articulation Joints: We use Chromoly heim joints and spherical bearings with self-lubricating nylon races for durability and ease of maintenance.

Weight-Optimized Design: Crafted from Aerospace grade aluminum, our compact drop knuckle design reduces weight without compromising strength.

Please Note: Installation requires minor modifications to the subframe and potentially to the left side header to accommodate the new steering wheel shaft location.

- A normal coilover will contact the upper control arm where the spring passes through the arm. This kit has been tested with both BC racing and Feal coilovers, these 2 coilovers work when installed inverted (with the spring at the bottom of the coilover instead of the top). The upper control arm is designed this way to maximize steering angle and it is necessary.

- The OEM steering shaft fire wall boot must be removed, and the fire wall needs a slight notch in it. The reason is the bmw steering rack is narrower, and the steering shaft angle increases towards the center of the car.

- The bmw steering rack also requires the factory steering rack gwebo. We have machined an adapter to connect to the e46 gwebo. The gwebo comea with a rubber dampener installed, this can be run as is, or the rubber damper can be drilled out, and the 2 halves of the qwebo bolted together. 

*Wheel Bearing not included*
