If the car is stock as a rock and low on power, like mine for example, then there
is no point. But if you've got more power then it obviously gives you more contact
with the road and therefore more grip.
As for the paint thing, no idea man, paint stripper???
IBLOWN, thanks for your camber idea. I was thinking about a VY or VZ rear cradle with my diff mounted in it. Only problem is they are still a bit hard to find at a reasonable price. I have an Acclaim wagon. Still trying to find out if the 2003 Statesman cradle will work as I know where there is one available.
accent, I will try stripper on the back of a wheel. Hydrochloric would get through an alloy wheel in about 45 seconds I guess, unless it was watered down to about 10%.
