Looks like cast Al to me. cast anything is the suck, no matter what the metal.

Agreed...the question is: does anyone make a better piece? I have looked around and come up with nothing.

Awesome. Glad to hear there are some fellow sliders here. That Grand Prix looks like a beast, very cool.

I had an interesting event last weekend...

Snapped a lower control arm in the middle of a 50+mph drift.

*Guilty of going sideways more often than I probably should..

I've dabbled in it.

I don't know of any other maker. :(

Perhaps it was a simple fluke?? fwiw, in over 2 years of motor sport in the Z (including drifting) I've never encountered any stress on the front suspension like that.

Are you still on the stock suspension?

Actually the stock suspension pieces are indeed forged.

That break sure looks like a cast part to me, but then again it is just a crummy picture.
