In this post, we show you how to convert your R31 House Grk Global to a rwd drift car.



Main Items required in this conversion:

Wrap Up Next Upper Arm: http://goo.gl/lYX7q4

Wrap Up Next 12mm Extension: http://goo.gl/xPPOhP

Wrap Up Next 2.5mm Lower Arm: http://goo.gl/m7Xifr

Wrap Up Next Short Axle: http://goo.gl/jxwiyZ

Active Steering Knuckle: http://goo.gl/56qYvv



First remove all suspension components from the front end of the car. Then remove the center shaft and front ball diff.

Install the long ballstud from the suspension components you just took off the car onto the 12mm extension piece. This will be our steering linkage.

Install ball studs onto the steering knuckle. Note that the bottom outter hole and on the top, the inside hole was used. This is called a kpi effect which allows a more stable control through the corner.

Nothing special about this lower arm installation, but note the amount of spacers used as this gives the same wheelbase setting as the kit setting.

For testing this RWD converison, we decided to use the least amount of caster as possible. This dulls the car down throughout the corner and will allow for easier drifting.

Now we can take a look at the assembled items.

Due to the spacers used on the steering knuckle, we need to use one upper hole on the camberlink to keep the rollcenter settings the same. Assembly is straightforward here as you just screw the 2.5mm screw on the arm kingpin through the camberlink holes.

The final step will be to install everything back onto the car. Once again, very straightforward as everything fits into place.

Now repeat the same thing for the other side. Now you can see in this photo the large amount of steering angle that is possible with this car.
