    Hmmm...a little more work on the rear pillars and spoiler/tail and I think you've got it! I like the way the roof flows into the rear section...nice and modern. reminds me of a Ferrari...but with a cooler cockpit! 8)

    Yes it flows and with the upsweep at the end, which so many cars are shaped so as not to have a spoiler.

    Looks nice, I look forward to seeing it 'in the flesh' shortly.

    If that is your chassis tuning tool lying in the foreground of the picture - you need to talk to Lauren :lol:

    Can't be for the chassis...it's too small to be a BFH :lol: What's the transaxle again, Jon?

    I'm sorry Jon, I can't keep biting my tongue any longer, but for this to work you do need to have bigger wheels

    Jon, If the tyre to arch dims is all that people are worried about then you could use a slightly bigger profile tyre, not massive as that would upset the cornering characteristics but a bigger profile would fill the arches a bit more, but still utilising 15" rims. If you do go up in rim size don't use 16" as tyres for those work out far more expensive than 15's or 17's especially if you want a more well known manufacturer.
