    Steering Lock Spacers MX5/S13/S14/S15 increased Steering Angle For Drifting. - Steering Lock Spacers MX5/S13/S14/S15 increased Steering Angle For Drifting. | eBay

    Basically I've read a few threads about increased lock now and its next on my long list of things to do. I wad just wondering if anybody is using these spacer that are for sale on eBay and if so how are they fitted and are they any good?
    Thanks guys

    Never used them myself, however if you search for 'Seaside Alliance' on here, Glyn is the guy who makes them and ran them on his mx5 (the one in the pic); from what I understand a decent guy :)

    I wouldnt hesitate to buy them when i eventually get round to doing mine.

    Same as the ones you can buy from the Driftworks shop, and about the same price too.

    Running more than 1 washer per side will fuck your power steering up in no time, which is what I did to both mine, you need to de-power the rack once that happens, but I like it de-powered.

    Only 1 washer per side isn't really worth it IMO though.

    Fits between inner and outer tie rod, pretty easy.

    Nowhere near as good as knuckles, but way way cheaper, esp as stock Mk1 MX5 lock is dogshit.

    my MX5 hasn't got power steering anyway so should i go for spacers each side? and yeah the lock is shockingly poor and I run out of talent alot so need extra lock to avoid facing the wrong way lol

    yes. if you think you spin to much, you need to practise more, not add lock. thats allmost cheating. Learn to you feel the car is holding you back, THEN modify
