4 pot multi throttled engines sound better than that VR6!...

Off topic, but what the are you doing in Crowdy Head?? There's nothing there isn't there.

 

I stayed at the campsite at Diamond head in the Crowdy Bay national park a few years back - awesome place waking up next to kangaroos and Goannas!

Sods law btw, it appears nobody makes a diff any more so an used quaife unicorn poo type unit is required, or roughly £1200 for grippper to make a one off.

 

Unless there is a non uk factory lsd used, which appears to be the case for the be boxes, not shown for us lot as it seems the country chosen does more than alter currency shown.

A guy got a attacked by a shark at Diamond head a few weeks ago! I'm lifeguarding Crowdy Head Beach, actually gets quite busy, last day on Tuesday though :(

 

That is a sod WP, was looking to do this long term. The chassis is already fairly well sorted to be honest, as are the brakes!

Have been to doing some digging today as the wheels where a bit unknown, all i knew was they looked cool and I wanted them!

Turns out they are OZ Rally Race - that's their actual name! Only in motorsport application where they made in Magnesium - and generally only to order too :o The new cost of these was £600 a wheel. Will have the man refurbing them to go over them to be certain they are healthy.

If they're magnesium be very careful and have them checked out properly as they have a 5yr recommended use, but there is companies out there that can check them out & refurb them properly.

 

& If they're ford fit they'll be the wrong centre bore unfortunately!

Yer I am aware about treating them really carefully. I have a chap local to me, recommended by Edd Cherry actually, he refurbs magnesium wheels - he's done some F1 stuff! So he will give them a good check over.

 

The brake clearance on them is epic as well so that won't be a problem. Offset if still unknown, it is not stamped on the wheel, however he has measure it and said

 

'its about 15cm from hub face to outside of rim' struggling to work what the offset would be from that?

If you get the measurement of the wheel width, it will be easy to work out the offset.

Thanks wes, I may well pop down when I'm back. I think they are roughly ET35 so using 20mm spacers will mean I loose 9mm on the inside, so the wheel is 9mm closer to the strut, hopefully this won't be a problem on the back either.

et 35 with 20mm spacer will take it to et15 which is what both sets of my 15x7's have been so should fit with no problems.

Got the wheels on, also gave it a wash and wax today and its looking bloody lovely.

 

So if you want to fit group A wheels you'll need this little lot.

It is a little low for my liking and will raise it, down pipe clearance is minimal

Salisbury plain?

Looks epic. A friend has a 406 V6 coupe that goes very nicely, with 400kg less I'm sure yours is very swift :-)
