The Mantis Kit for the FRS/BRZ is the most relevant angle kit in today's drift society, and here's why:
-Angle, 65 degrees depending on your steering rack type, location, and wheel size.
-Ackerman, Adjustable ackerman
-Roll Center, optimized handling by adding 50mm of roll centre correction
-Bump steer, minimal bump steer in drift by perfecting tie-rod pitch angle
-Castor, added trail and reduced caster which adds more grip by increasing tire contact patch, causes less bump steer, less jacking from lock to lock, increase transition speed, effortless transition while on throttle
-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, 2024 aluminum used where possible which provides steel like strength at 40% weight reduction.
The "BASE KIT" includes the following
-Custom knuckles (50mm roll centre corrected, adjustable ackerman, 40%weight reduction, double shear spherical bearing pick up and added trail to work with the reduced caster) - Lower control arms (adjustable in length and caster, these lower control arms reach out to +75mm over stock length) - Outer Tie-rods (spherical bearing outer ball joint with 2024 aluminum adjuster) -All hardware required for install
The "FULL KIT" includes these additional pieces to the base kit
-adjustable offset rack spacer (an offset rack spacer that allows for a spherical bearing to be used, and offers adjustable setting for rack offset)
-weld on plates for subframe (instructions included in purchase of kit)
-Caster plates (new plates for your coilover top that moves the top of the coilover out as far as legally possible, and reduces caster for less bind, less camber gain through lock, and better contact patch during drift)
The "POWER KIT" includes these additional pieces
This kit is in development to implement the S-chassis power steering rack for hydraulic power steering.
-Steering rack weld in mounts -Subframe braces -Different knuckles to suit the changed rack location
