The MILD Mantis kit for the IS300 / JZX90 / JZX100 is the first of its kind and is very unique in how we came up with the solution. Using the OEM control arm as a base, we have made a Control arm adaptor that bolts to the end of the arm, and converts the arm into housing the ball joint, instead of the knuckle. By doing this, we are able to improve roll center more effectively. The next component is the knuckle adaptor itself, which includes a 40mm drop, adjustable ackermann, and adjustable bump stop. It connects in the factory ball joint location on the knuckle but also grabs one of the brake caliper ears for additional strength. The 3rd component is the high clearance compression arm. This part is ON-CAR adjustable to dial in your caster, and attaches underneath the control arm for tierod clearance and wheel clearance. These 3 pieces are what will give your chassis better track width, handling and steering angle. This kit must use adjustable upper control arms, (they can be any manufacture including FDF). The uppers will be an added option for the MILD Mantis Kit.
-Angle, 65 degrees+ depending on your steering rack offset and wheel setup
-Tie-rods, the kit includes tierod adaptors to connect to the knuckle
-Ackermann, adjustable ackermann (other settings offered upon request)
-Roll Center, optimized handling by adding 40mm of roll centre correction
-Bump steer, corrected bump steer for a lowered ride height
-Caster, optimized caster and trail for the best alignment torque feedback
-Camber, optimized camber ranging from -3 to -6
-Track Width, 50mm 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.
