The 240SX/Silvia is an amazing platform in all it s generations. The FR-Drive-train and it s light weight offer a perfect balance between speed and agility. Used in a wide range of motor-sports such as drag, drift, autocross, road race and even rally the 240SX has proven it s worth time and time again.
As a street car, it s refined and well mannered, comfortable to drive in and stylish with a bit of aggression in it s curves. Although it s initial design was sporty and aggressive it was still designed as a street car.
Those who seek the most from their car know that in the rigors of competition you need to extract every ounce of performance from your machine. You need the capability to have every degree of adjustment above and beyond that of a street driven vehicle. You need the strength to withstands the stresses and strains of hard corners, a rough course and brutal weight transfer and chassis flex.
It s within this understanding that Megan Racing has unveiled our line of reinforced suspension arms that offer the strength and adjustment that any competition vehicle will ever need. Constructed of high-strength steel alloys that offer durability, strength and yet remain light-weight, these control arms have been track tested for months in road race, autocross and drift events to assure quality and performance.
These rear traction rods available for the S13/S14 chassis are an excellent upgrade. With it s adjust-ability you are able to carefully tune the vehicle s rear suspension to your specifications. The pillow-ball ends replace the stock rubber bushings on the chassis and offers you a more direct and predictable feel that you require in competition. The adjust-ability and feel is also backed with the comfort that your stock thin tension rods are now replaced with thick steel constructed arms that can withstand the stresses of competition.
These Traction rods also allow for fine-tuned adjustments to the rear suspension geometry. By changing the length of the traction rod you change the position and pitch of which the suspension rotates upon and you change the amount of "Anti-Squat" of the rear. Although the adjustment is minimal, it can change the behavior or the vehicle during weight transfer.
Traction rods: Determine caster (or thrust angle) on the rear suspension. As with the front, this helps determine the camber curve of the rear suspension.
Tip: On an aggressively lowered car, these should be lengthened (to about 8.5in) for a less aggressive toe curve and less bumpsteer.
- Will fit Nissan 240SX (S13/S14), 300ZX (Z32), and Skyline (R32)
- Thread pitch on the nuts are 16MM x P1.50
- Adjustable lengths to tune Rear Suspension and Reduce Bump-Steer.
- Pillowball bearing replaces OEM rubber bushing.
- Durable Steel construction to withstand high-stresses of competition.
- Powdercoated with brilliant blue finish for years of performance.
