the car sits level...it is to be exact 5mm lower at the rear than the front since the stereo gear went in

350mm front from centre of rim to guard
345mm rear from centre of rim to guard

dont like the whole dump the ass and have the front in the air...
I spoke to Sonny from Marrano's in Sydney today... Looking at just over $4,200 drive in - drive out for cam, valve springs, OTRCAI and tune. Once I have that done, I'll get a small chrome sticker made up that fits neatly under the 307 on the boot lid: "rwkw" :D
should be an animal then mate...look forward to results :D
deano, how long till the wheels arrive?
rims not sure yet...there was some issue with the manufacturer in the US and also i havent really been ready for the rims with paying the other mods....so dont know yet...

will call him this week to find out

My opinion, drop the rear more. The overall lines of the car make it appear to be higher at the rear. Who cares what the rim to guard measurements are if the sill at the bottom of the doors doesn't sit level... that's my indication for a car sitting level.

Do love the no spoiler look though.

So you're one of the morons who thinks driving a boat (higher in the front than the rear) is cool? When was the last time you saw any kind of race car with a higher front end than rear end? The car IS level when you check ground clearance of the sill pan just in front of the rear wheels and just behind the front wheels.

"Boats" look and drive like pooh!

You can't tell me that in these photo's that the car looks level. The body kit raises much higher at the rear wheel than at the front.

Don't get me wrong, the car looks great but if it were mine (which I know it ain't), I would have it looking level.

Who gives a toss - when was the last time we all drove race cars on the road?
