Cheers sharrpy, It was actually bone dry it's just the pictures make it look a bit greasy. all tyres are 225/45/17 rsr's front wheels are 8.5j et35 and rears are 8j et48 with 3mm spacer [smilie=karls_thumb.gif] Do you own a certain red car now btw?

Mainly front but i think abit more camber will cure it, my problem is the wheel width and offset as i think on another wheel they'd be no problems. Rears just catch slightly when hitting dips in the road but i only half rolled the arches so would probably clear if fully done. Like i say i couldn't fault the Rsr's and thats coming from using r888s last. Rsr- £85 r888-£160 made my mind up :lol:

Prob just the atch liners on the front and if its owt like mine, it rubs on the rear where the bumper screws to the chassis after rolling the arches. What suspension you running as car looked real
composed through hall bends, apart from when a gt3rs was stalking you lol

Yea same man!!! Ill get in soon enough, just wanna get my brake kit sorted first as its a bit one off and then im good to go (hopefully)
I appreciate the whole keeping your car mint etc but i prefere to have it looking alright and throwing money and time at developing it into a weapon on the track instead :)
