The Mantis Kit for the BMW is the most relevant angle kit in today's drift society, and here's why:
-Angle, 65+ degrees depending on wheel size and arm length
-Ackerman, zero, plus 2 and plus 4 degrees ackerman available as options.
To understand ackerman, with plus 2 degrees of ackerman, your lead wheel would be at 70* and your trail wheel would be at 66*. that is 2 degrees per side resulting in a 4 degree overall difference at full lock. same applies for the 4 degree option.
-Roll Center, optimized handling by adding 30mm of roll centre correction
-Bump steer, minimal bump steer in drift by perfecting tie-rod pitch angle
-Caster, factory caster can be changed using both the arm and the additional caster plates for better steering return
-Camber, optimized camber ranging from -3 to -6
-Track Width, 50-75mm wider per side creating a stable and high clearance front end
-Suspension Travel, long travel range, full lock to full lock at any point throughout suspension travel for increased grip
-Joints, Chromoly heim joints and spherical bearings with self lubricating nylon race, easily replaceable
-Weight Reduction, compact drop knuckle design makes for a lighter and stronger design, scissor frame constructed arms with crumble zone to save mounting points from failing under impact, 7075 aluminum used where possible which provides steel like strength at 40% weight reduction.
Caster plates - these will relocate the strut further outward on the strut tower. maintaining the factory KPI angle and slightly reducing the caster. the BMW chassis has very high caster/kpi values from factory. These caster plates should only be added if you are running the mega mantis kit.
Tierod Upgrade- these replace the factory inner tierod with a shackle and heim joint. it is more durable and will last longer than the factory socket style.
Sway bar link - these will come with an adaptor bracket and adjustable links to connect your mantis kit to any sway bar (OEM or after market)
*If you have an E36-M3 please choose the E36-M3 product, the knuckles are different to suit the M3 calipers and rotors.
