    Default E30 track car

    Hi all have been building my track car the last while and just come across a little problem .I've a e46 rack and e30 inner and outer tie rods fitted .I got extended wishbone and modified knuckles made up so now my tie rod's are too short .abut 40mm.
    Inner rod is 200 mm is there any off the shelf ones that are longer to make up the difference besides welding and messing

    Can't remember exactly but at least 50mm. Fitted a set to an E36 recently that had some extended wishbones and had to shorten them a little as the wishbones weren't as wide as some people make them.

    Better shortening off the shelf rods than welding other ones together though
