Did you finish the body work or are you running the stick-out style?

Actually I am getting ready to do some bodywork this Saturday...it will most likely not be finished completelly but should be enough so somewhat cover the tires. It will stick out in the rear. I went with a bit stiffer springs in the rear so rubbing should not be an issue. The front fenders will be cut around the edges and then "massaged" upward to accomodate lowering of the car and the wider tires. (the fender lip will be pushed out and upwards...) Hope this makes sense. Once everything is finished a fiberglass mold will be made from each fender to make new lightweight pieces....
As for the hood, I am getting ready to lay her up this evening. Just finished the mold last night so it should be done by this weekend also. I'll have pictures soon.

kinda offtopic, but kinda not, i was just looking around sccaforums a little and someone posted photos of an autox out in beaverun recently, and saw a photo of an ST185. so i inquired: http://sccaforums.com/forums/1/244980/S ... spx#244980

and then i come over here, not because i was looking for the SM autocross car, but i was looking for some info on wheels doing a search, and looks like i found the owner of that car here on alltrac.net: gtfour77. lol.

COOL, mucho respect to you for actually autocrossing the heavy celica in SM!! woot woot. i think once my suspension mods are all done and i get my car tight enough, i'm going to give STX a try. i don't plan on extensively autocrossing or modding this car, since that's what the MR2 toy is for.

anyway, to be on topic-- if you look at the sccaforums reply, it does mention you running 315 tires :shock: :shock: as you said in this thread...

Sportmax has some new wheels.

This is a cool design. Someone might want to see if you can order a 17x9 5x100 low et of this wheel.
