      15 X 9's fit easy.

      The car is back together. I need to wait until I get a new fastback and boot so I can paint it to match. But otherwise it's pretty much a useable car.
      I am looking forward to finding out the final weight.

        And a pic outside. Should look ok when it gets its stickers and stripes and the new roof and boot get painted to match. And the spoiler is not staying.

          Looks great, will be interesting to see final weight. Why no spoiler? Going with a wing instead?

            had them on my Soarer mainly as street wheels, but also did some hillclimb/gymkhana stuff with them. Just bought a set for my Levin too. They're OK.

              The wing gives much less drag, and more downforce. Top speed was 197.
              With a wing on my old car top speed was 206. That was on the limiter in 6th gear using 4.3 diff gears. This car has 4.1 gears, but it's lighter by 50kg's.

                I am throwing on the aero that has been laying around for the last 2 years, it's not ideal, but it's quick to bolt in as its already made. May as well do a track day over the long weekend. And when I get time I will get a nice aero package together for it. This works, so it's going to stay on for now. I might bring the flogged out A050's up to Winton with me (3 of them still grip well), just incase the RS3's don't feel grippy enough. I need to do a sub 1:36 to be happy. The tall diff ratio is going to hurt at Winton.

                    Yep. I plan on going to Phillip island Friday night for the p.i classic. Then Saturday night to Shepparton to do some renovations at the in laws, Monday morning to Winton for the track day. Then back to Melbourne Monday night. It's a long weekend of driving and cars. Plus the Reno work :/

                        I saw that, he spent some time on it. I don't get why you wouldn't out a turbo on it, so much cheaper, and you get more power. But I bet it's fun as is.

                              The car is loaded up and ready to go. I think I will struggle to get a 1:36 with the RS4's and tall diff ratio. But as always will give it my best shot. I bought some alloy flexible duct so I can make it a bit cooler inside while driving. Will just poke it out the side window and point the other end at me.
