Nissan C33 — Josh Smith (Pro-Sport)
An example of competing with minimal budget and the support of friends as crew, Josh’s set-up keeps it fairly simple. He runs a GKtech super lock kit that encompases a knuckle, LCA, and rack ends. It previously ran a C’s Garage 555 knuckle set up, but the change to the GKtech pieces suit his style of driving better, allowing for a smoother switch.
“It doesn’t have any bump steer and all that now, just lots more lock,” Josh told us.
For struts he runs whatever was handy at the time, being the entry-level goto option of BC Gold coilovers up front and D2 coilovers in the rear.
“It is what it is really — I just f*cking drive it hard. Don’t mess around with spring rates, just chuck ’em in there and leave ’em be.” The rear is equally as simple, with Hardrace camber and toe arms. “I’m pretty happy with it at the moment, eh. It gets power to the ground well, and we’ll change tyre pressures to suit. Today it’s sitting around 26psi with a good squat.”
The rear sway bar is a factory option, while the front has been binned to allow for better lock.
