He has been very hands-on with the building and preparation of his drift cars. He built his current Formula D RHD S13 by himself with some help from friends and some assistance from PSI. He offers custom modified S13/S14 drift knuckles that he personally builds himself. Kyle runs the same setup on his FD S13 to give him more angle. These knuckles allow for reverse entries and have Akerman and bump steer correction. Formula D driver, Walker Wilkerson, also used these knuckles on his S13 at the Palm Beach FD event. Here are some photos of the build process.
