Cool. At least, now you'll have some chance of winning the race.

Hope it does not rain tomorrow on your side !

Are you sure it's only a week or so that you have to wait for good weather?

They fit fine. You only need the zero offset ones in the rear. Just that the stock Serpent flanged wheel nuts would not fit. You need to dremel where the flanges of the wheel nut sits and locks on to the rims.

If you want to save yourself the trouble of dremelling, use other smaller types of wheel nuts.

If you want other types of rims, Ellegi and the other types of GRP varients (FAST, POWER etc) should fit.

Perhaps you may want to attach a diagram or a sample picture of how the receiver pack should look like. That would be the best to explain to them how they should custom assemble your receiver pack.

It's really great ! I'm trying to play with the conventional settings at the moment. Sway bars, springs, caster, droop, camber etc.

With the stock roll centers for the front and rear, the car really handles and behaves well on the track. Sure footing at all corners and sweepers. Acceleration is simply ballastic ! When 2nd gear hits in, the car just continues to accelerate. It's really scary.
