Looks great Brian I love the looks of fat rubber on a wide body car.

If and when you break those loose on a hot day on hot asphalt you're are going to be seriously launching forward at an incredible rate of acceleration.

I only have 275's but when they don't loose traction it feels like a carnival thrill ride.

I've run huge tires on all my cars through the years. Typically a little spin is needed to get things going or the engine is pulled down. The big tires are heavy and make the car less nimble but at the same time lift throttle oversteer is all but erased.

Brian, just saw the picture of the wheel on the car. We are totally on the same page in this. Looks totally awesome. Makes mine look like stilts used for crop dusting

Hey Brian,
Is that a pic of your car? What muffler is that? Looks like super traps. Looks awesome from here. How about a few more pics?

I am giddy like a little school girl Jesper. I've been out in the shop all day test fitting headers and building heater boxes and every time I look over at the car a big grin comes. I just love that look!

Diggin' the 4spd Rod. I suspect this Euro engine may have SC cams as it is very responsive. Don't have a stock gearing chart handy to see but she runs about 2600rpm at 70mph, SWEET!

TDI that picture above is the first 911 I ever owned, a 1973 2.4L/Sporto 911T. It was total junk when I bought it. I gave away the functioning MFI (they were worth nothing at the time) and Paul Ross rebuilt the engine and added the Webers. I added a weltmiester suspension and supertrapps. We ditched the Sporto for a 915 with airport gears. Man that was the most wicked sounding car I had ever owned up to that time (the red rocket now has that title). A (dumbass) guy bought that car for his 21 year old son who promptly blew the engine and left it sitting behind a shed for 6 months with the Targa top out. What a waste. I ran into what was left of the car in the mid 90's at a swap meet in Effingham IL (Tweaks). Wilhoit had bought the car and was selling the leftovers which I recognized. He painted it yellow. A few years ago a fellow looking to buy it called me here in Alabama. Apparently another parent with more money than brains had bought it from Wilhoit for her son, who promptly destroyed it (again). Don't know if that fellow bought it but we had a nice chat. Is there a moral to this story?

I haven't really done much with the rubber yet but did wipe the tail down with vaseline which seemed to help some. I'll look into the Gummi stuff as well, thanks!

Got the wheels and a few odds and ends back from the paint guy this evening. New paint always looks so good. I had a set of caps laying around that I had painted body color to match. Don't know if I'll use them but now was the time to paint.

Which caps do you guys like best?

I think the bottom ones match the wheels and current paint on your car better. Nice to have the choice.

black caps for me. I think the color-caps would be distracting from the overall look of the car.

Wow, split camps!
I may put colored caps on one side and gray caps on the other, ha!
Actually there is one more option and that is the caps that came on the car. They are actually painted crests with gray background that matches the car. I'll have to remove them from the OEM wheels and see how that looks as compared to the black caps with painted crests.
The crests on this car have me scratching my head. They all match the car's gray color. The hood crest is gray/silver. Was that an option?

On a side note, I just realized the wheels I am using on the "new" slant are the same ones picture above on my old '73 911 widebody! I also ran them on the red rocket for a few years. Sure got my use out of 'em.

Never seen a gray hood crest, only gold or silver. Call me anal...but they should all match.

My OCD .02 worth.

I'll put the OEM gray caps with colored crests on and see how that looks. I'll bet it will be a nice compromise.
