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.


wow.. can&#39;t say I&#39;ve ever done that..




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

I don&#39;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&#39;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.
