Is the photography or is the car running with quite a high setup? Tall tyres, big wheels?

Nice looking car by the way....:thumbsup:
 
Paul,

may I suggest, as Keith has mentioned, that the car is running very high.

If nothing else get the car running with a nose down attitude or you will have a light steering and lift problem at speed !!!!!!
 
Thanks for the info . I will go get the tires sizes and the hight of the nose from the ground . I drove well for me on the track but I am a novice .

Paul,

The car definitely is flying! :laugh:

Here's a shot of mine with the original GTD wheels before I re-worked the suspension, along with an "after" when I switched to pin-drive wheels, better-sized (IMO) tires (295/50-15 rear, 225/50-15 fronts) and a properly set-up suspension. We removed all of the GTD bushings, converted everything to heim-joints and corrected the bad geometry. The car was completely transformed after Ian went through it. The best money I've ever spent on a car.

But it is VERY low and scrapes pretty much everything bigger than a post card.

I do think my front end is sitting a little high your tires are more in the fender I could adjust the shocks setting down a bit I think

Paul,

The good news is that you only need to buy two front tires.
The bad news is that the correct size is hard to find. Your front tires are over 26" tall and they should be closer to 24.5". Your rears are good, so hopefully you can make some adjustments to lower the car.

Good luck!

Mark
