Looks great. Love the colour and wheels. Are those wheels the forged magnesium CTR2 wheels? Large spacers are needed to fit them right? Damn they would look good on my silver car

Thanks for the compliments people, i'm glad you all like it. I'll try and answer all your questions.

Firstly it's a BMW colour called Estoril blue which was available on E36 M3 Evo's here in europe. Don't think that car was available over in the U.S. I've added some pearl to it just to make it a little bit different though.

Yes the wheels are the same as the CTR2 wheels but they're made of aluminium rather than magnesium.

All the arch/fender lips have been rolled flat (like the RS Cup cars) for more clearance.

Yeah the suspension is very stiff, running hollow T-bars all round. Might switch to Coil-overs later when funds allow!

Brakes not fitted in the picture as we were just trial fitting the wheels/suspension to check clearance. Running 380x32 and 320x28 disks with GT2 Evo calipers front and rear. Separate Wilwood caliper for parking brake.

Just trying to make it a bit more individual than your normal SC!

So the wheels are replicas? Do you know what brand name? Are they as heavy as the usual replica wheels? Just curious - I think I'll keep my cup1s

A little more individual Depending on the engine you plan on fitting the SCWDP may not accept you as a genuine SC man

No they're not replica wheels, they're genuine Ruf's', just the new aluminium version of the older magnesium type.
I couldn't justify spending 8000 on a set of magnesium rims on an '83 SC!
Plus as i'm sure many of you are aware, magnesium age hardens and becomes brittle, especially when subjected to high temperatures like racing. Most racing wheels aren't used for more than one season before they're destroyed.

The wheels as they came with the car when I bought it 9/02.

Turbo Tie Rods just installed, new Bilstein strut inserts arrive Fri, after they're installed I'll have the car lowered, balanced and alligned.

Here`s a few of mine. I especially like the classy look of the old chromes with caps. They are so classy. And yes the ride hieght on the 76`(with the BBS) has been lowered . The yellow 69` has strange wheels and I dont know there origin . Also there`s a pic of a 15x7 american racing torque thrust.

scuffing

has anyone like me gone to the expense of fitting expensive wheels and tyres swearing to never damage them only to scuff or kerb them by some weird quirk of fate (not your fault........ the rim God doesn't like you) after stopping crying and kicking the cat a lot how much does it cost to get slight scuffs out?....ones that can't be polished by hand

I'll add these 16 x 9 & 7 factory Fuchs with polished lips that live on my 88 911 turbo. They're only happy under boost!

I like them; why are so many Porsche owners ranting about the Fuchs? I've read numerous posts about changing to Fuchs and don't understand why? I prefer the more modern look?
See Mikkel's posting on Pg.2 of this thread dated 10-29-02: Now those I like!!!
Here's mine for the thread count:

Here is a before and after pic of the circa 1968 magnesium American mags that I recently bought for my 1970"S". I am going to have a huge amount of elbow grease in these wheels before I am done, but I love the retro race look
