My car is used chiefly for daily driving and road rallies so the function aspect is a little more important than form. With the drop the car is already very low and adding a lip is just too much. I like things simple and clean.

    As I said - good luck on the build, I happy someone else is modding their beast!
    Hmmmmm, let me know if u don't end up using the defusers. Would save me some down time getting them made.

    How much clearance do you have to the rear shock with the 6.5" inner barrel? I have a 6.5" inner on the rear and only had 4-6mm clearance. If I had to do it all over again I may have gone a bit more conservative with 3.5" lips all around instead of the 4" that I have now. Would have been able to tuck in rear without fender work.

    Look forward to seeing the finished product.

    When we were doing the final measurements the 6.5 inch barrels were pretty much maxing it out. There is a brake line I might have to flip backwards and maybe cut out some of the plastic liner but I won't know until I get the tire mounted and drop the car as low as I want to. The 3.5 lip should give me a fit that is flush with the fender. I dont like the whole poke look so thats why I waited to get the coilovers installed before measuring for the lip size. The whole process has taken about 4.5 months because it took so long to get the coilovers made. The suspense is killing me.

    KDMZilla I just want to confirm that you have the 5.0 and not the 5.0 Ultimate correct? I only ask because of the CDC considerations and the coilovers (if any).

    After a the real barrels being backordered (apparently 7.5 inch are rare) I got the call today that the wheels are ready. Need to swing by Megan Racing for one more tweak to the coilovers and I'm good to go.

    Oh, and apparently my car is going to be at Wekfest in May so I've gotta get my ass in gear.

    Little teaser:
