That car looks menacing, in a good way. I love the stance.
Can you REALLY turn the front wheels without catching the fenders while going over a bump?

Johan,
You would be surprised how easily the fronts clear with rolled fenders, a little offset magic, and properly sized tires. I drive mine like a rental and have yet to rub.


Joe,
Your car is impeccable as always.

I love the look, but honestly, I just don't see how you are able to drive this car hard, really loading the suspension and not get rub. What are your suspension specs? I know you said you don't catch the front fenders when turning hard and in a bump, but I just don't see how with that little amount of clearance. I assume the fender lips are folded pretty flat on the inside? Don't misunderstand my post, I love it, I just am curious about how you pull it off.

In the first pic you quoted, notice the ~1" (25mm) shadow between the fender lip and tire.
This does two things.
1. It gives the illusion that the fender and tire are closer than they really are.
2. It proves that they are not close. If the tire were right up to the edge of the fender, there would be no shadow. Case in point: Look at the rear wheel in the same picture. At 9 o'clock, there is no shadow between fender and tire as they are in nearly the same plane.

Assuming this car has any roll/bump correction, then there will be camber-gain on compression and the top of the wheel will move in under compression.

When you combine all these things with a reasonable scrub-radius, the wheel/tire will twist/pivot instead of swing when the wheels are turned. This also helps keep the tires off the arches.

I will assume the fenders are rolled as the car looks to be very well put together. This also contributes ~1/2" (13mm) of clearance.

None of this is sorcery. It's a little math and a little trial and error.

While at the shop today, a delivery truck pulled in and parked behind me. It was close to perfect. I wanted to share this pic because you folks are probably the only people who care.

7" & 8" x 15" wrapped in 195/65 and 205/60 with 21mm spacers in the rear. I measure 25 ⅝" to the lip on the drivers side rear and 25" on the passenger side rear. Is that normal? Also, the mechanic that I know and love doesn't really want me to drop the car any lower, but I see so many that seem lower.

I recently pulled the chin spoiler and tail, as I'm sure many will notice from the lack of wrap where the footprint of the chin resided. I also plasti dipped the wheels to try something different. I'm into it. Anyway, thought it was a cool pic.

They must be really good at photoshop, because the video looks to be the same height.
