Here's mine, low but not too low. 25.25 in the front and 25 inches in the rear.

more pics in the ducktail thread, page one. http://forums.pelicanparts.com/showt...ight=duck+tail

What's up with the wheels on Jack's car? Is it an optical illusion or is it 17's in front, 15's in back? If so, does it work? Yikes!
i think the rears have a deeper dish. this may be why the front one looks a little bigger - they're not as wide as the rears. just a theory

Wow I cant believe some of these dont rub...look awesome.

Here is my former car. It looked great but was a bit too low and was little "bump steery" as a result. I discovered you have a lot more room to play with with the turbo fenders.

I've always had good luck following a recommendation I got close to 20 years ago- regardless of height, for track use you should have between 3/4 and 1 degree of rake on the rocker panels. It's worked well for me all these years.

Here's my favorite stance- staying in front of my BIL at MidOhio:


And one more, though the camera angle and the track terrain make it look like I have more than 1 degree of angle:

What are the specs on this setup? I need to have my suspension adjusted and this car has always impressed me.

FWIW I think part of the key to that stance is the 7,9 fuchs. With out those you cant re-create.

That thing looks loooow in the back. Looks great.

I will guess.

- 7 and 9 fuchs
- 225/45 in front
- 235/40 rear
- Aggressive fender role front and rear
- A touch below euro ride ht in the front, with bump steer spacers and maybe Bump steer tie rods ??
- An inch lower than euro in the back with max camber dialed in.

The right stance depends on the car...

In a 78 this is it for me - 205/50/17 & 245/40/17



In a 69S - 185/70/15



I could go on....................

I'm going to go against the grain a little here (and please friends, its just an opinion) but I think cars that have the tires tucked under the fenders are too low and look... unnatural. To me the perfect stance has the fenders just over or barely touching the tops of the tires. Mine is a good example of that. (..and before you think I'm bragging, please note the previous owner is the one who lowered it this way, and its part of the reason I bought the car...I had nothing to do with it other than loving it..)
