The 1.0 uses 1/2" offset rims. Don't the wheels rub on the body when turning?

the front's actually don't line up perfectly.(on the body at least) the holes on the tower are a mm or 2 off from the 2.0's therefor the pre cut body holes in the stock 2.0T body are slightly off using the 1.0 holes with 2.0 mounts.

proper offset will do wonder's for the handling of the vehicle......denying yourself of that is a real shame and your attitude doesn't help either....were only trying to help here.

you need 1/2" offset rims OR 1/2" extender's then you can run zero off but with the stock hexes you are supposed to run 1/2" offset.

I think the JC body doesn't come with pre-drilled holes.

I was looking at his avatar and noticed it was the JC body. If it wasn't for that quick glance I wouldn't have even noticed.
