Thanks guys. It turned out exactly how I hoped it would. I ended up going 205/50 in the end and the tread sits directly below the guard, should be sweet after a quick roll for clearance. I'd like to drop the car about an inch up front, and maybe 2 inches at the back (basically get it sitting level, rather than wheelbarrow stance). Don't want to go toooooo low, but i'd like to get rid of some of the guard gap. Gonna have to get coilovers in it sometime soon I guess!

So when your ready to sell it let me know. :D I think I speak for many people one this board when I say that this is the best looking car we've got on here. Im curious on what your suspension set up is though. I've got 15x7 +38 offset Enkei 92 meshes with b&g lowering spring on replacement gr2's and mine doesn't sit as low as yours. Of course im running a 195 tire too.

Best looking car? I don't know about that haha. I run b&g springs too. My shocks and rubbish, there may be a bit of sag there? Other than that, the weight of the 4WD gear could make it sit a bit lower.

Got pics of your car? I love Enkei 92's :D

Im still rocking the 4g15 and fwd so I think that's why yours sits about an inch lower. Ill take pics of it this weekend after I clean it up. For now here this link http://www.4g61t.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=35934. :D

Front coilovers are in, BC Golds (BR type), Evo 3 coilovers. Had some custom camber plates laser cut, gave them a lick of paint, all went together perfect. Rears are on order, 360mm BC struts with 160mm springs, Evo upper and lower mounts.

It's lower than it looks in the pics for some reason, can't even get my pinky finger in there. As much as I don't want to, I think I might wind it up a bit, can't imagine the cv's being too happy right about now haha

I've entered the car into an event this Sunday, so i've only got a few days to get it going again.

At the moment it looks something like this

Got a friend building some short route intercooler piping. Had a new windscreen installed yesterday to replace the old cracked one.

Somehow have to get a custom rear panhard rod made, roll the fenders, get a wheel alignment, refit dash/interior, fix drivers side axle which keeps popping out of the gearbox, and get it legal. All before Saturday :lol:

Also just put my new rear coilovers together. BC BR series, bit of a frankenstein. Mazda MX5 shocks/inserts, Nissan Maxima springs, and Evo 1-3 mounts. All went together like lego, i'm about to go install them now!

Aaaaand it's done! With not a day to spare.

Couldn't resist taking it out for a little boost. So much faster than it used to be to the point where I thought it was free-boosting, but nah, still on 1 bar solid, guess the old TD05 turbine was really choking down the potential of this turbo. TD06SL2 ftw!

Lots of crazy clunking/knocking/rubbing noises which I guess I'll work my way through over time. Needs a guard roll and wheel alignment, dial out some of that front camber, and it feels like it's toe'ing in pretty bad. And my alarm siren doesn't work any more for some reason. Also raised the front up about 10mm cause I didn't like the idea of my gearbox sitting 65mm from the ground :|

First wash it's had in about a year :D
