Default 1990-97 NA8C RP speed Drift tie rods

Hello i have a set custom ordered from japan in my hands for the NA8C and NA6C miata...this is for both the right and left inner tie rods made by Racing Produce in japan. These will increase your steering angle greatly and they have higher quality ball joints which gives the driver a better feedback from the road when controlling the steering.
I have a set on my 99 mazda miata and they are freaking amazing i can't spin the car now at all and i compete in the nopi pro drift series in my 99 miata

please call me at 754 244 1755 or email at [email protected]

these are extremely rare they are the only
set for the 90-97 miatas in the US right now
price is 225 shipped to your door which is exactly what i paid
picture is below (ignore the paint marks on the photo)
I still have them in the original box and wrapping
thanks

The other photo is of my miata so you can see how much angle i can get with these tie rods on...i wasnt even at full lock in this photo
these tie rods rule!

How does this affect turning radius, cause I would love to be able to turn on a Kopek, right now I can only turn on a dime.

these tie rods increase your turning radius almost 2/3 turn

Perhaps I'm not reading that correctly, but to me that means the turning radius is larger than stock. Did you mean something along the lines of the turning radius is reduced to approximately 2/3 (67%) of stock?

How do tie rods increase turning? It seems to me if you make them longer or shorter the tires would either v in or out.

i think he means that you get more angle when you turn the wheel all the way, it turns more, i dont know how to explain it any better than that

i cant imagine it helping you by reducing %67 compared to factory, maybe 2/3 turn of the steering wheel...
