Okay, just 31 days after buying my car, I got my track wheels to fit.

Wuhoo. I just got back from TC Design and I'm very very happy. My car was sitting at 25" on all 4 corners and even with 7mm spacers, my track wheels wouldn't fit. I was concerned that with 14's (the next size up) they'd rub on the outside.

The first thing Tony did was raise the rear of my car to 25.5". This is very close to the stock rake of the car. From the factory, the car comes with about 3/8" of rake so it's pretty close. This works out to ~3/4" drop on all four corners.

Now, my track wheels fit even with 7's. Anybody want to buy some 14mm spacers? Used approximately 30 minutes and going cheap.

He got my car corner weighted and aligned perfectly. Now I just have to go out and drive it. Thanks, Tony. You da man.

Will this break-in period ever end?!!!

I'll be at Robyn's on the 8th.

Perhaps someone there will get some snapshots of it.

My primary goals are as follows:
1) Figure out how to get my trackwheels home from Tony's.
2) Take my newly acquired knowledge of fitment and spacer compatibility and order up some street wheels that I like. I'm not a big fan of the Sport Classics that came with the car.
3) Once the new street wheels come in, likely 2 to 4 months down the road, install them and go out for a nice tour of some scenic roads.
4) Stop along the way to get good pics and post them on the board.
5) Finish updating my website which, btw, will be a lot of work. :/

By then, my Profil 13's will be my street wheels, I'll have new FM5's for the track, and everybody will have already lost interest in seeing the pics. But, they will be spectacular so it'll be your loss. hehe

Ya that is a shame. Maybe you wanna bring it down here and visit me in Mexico? You can race me in the dune buggy. I bet I win when we go to the sand track.
