Recommended Posts

Just about finished now, got some pics for people to have a look at

Sorry about the picture quality , I`ll get some better ones posted up!

It`s full gravel spec and should be out on a couple of Welsh events in the next month or two and then I`ll be trying to win the ANCRO clubmans championship next year!

Yep that looks bloody brilliant [:D][8D]

Couple for questions for you, if you would be so kind.

What offset are the wheels you're running?

and what spacers (i think i see some in one pic)

Would love to build my rally project with arches but getting wheels/ tyres to make them look right will be the problem. Whereas unarched i have loads, and loads, and loads [:P]


OMOC no:3325

The wheels are ET35 which is the original 400 gravel offset, however as you probably know cars have got a lot wider in track since the Grp B/4 days. I need to keep my car in the ruts that the WRC cars make as we run just behind them normally and that means I have to run spacers of between 5mm - 20mm. This depends again on tryes and conditions! The ones in the picture are on 20mm but even this leaves a bit of wheel inset to the arch. I don`t really care about the wheels sticking right into the arch, but unless you are building a gravel spec car you might have to do something about it!

However I do know that my tarmac whels are ET23 front and ET15 rear! Now they do the buisness.
