Matt at East Coast Supercharging has done me right on a set of Weld RT-S 17 in. wheels with a black face and polished barrel.

17 x 10 for the rear, and 17 X 5 for the fronts... with polished Gorilla Lug nuts...

I am ordering a set of adjustable lower control arms, probably BMR, and 28 x 10 x 17 Inch Hoosier Slicks, and M&H Skinnies for the front.

These tires will not see the street as they are race only tires...
Very nice. Weld makes some great racing wheels...
Didn't someone on here say that BMR was coming out with lower control arms that will fit a 15" rim?

yea - it was after someone posted a thread about the BMR LCA not fitting their 17"s. I don't think BMR gave a release date though :(

Like Stieger said, there is sometihng in the works...and I considered it due to the availability of tires Icould choose from with that set-up, but I decided to go ahead with this for now... It'll certainly serve my needs and capabilities...

Brandi is already so much faster than her pilot, I need a chance to catch up...

Tires and rims yea, I'm not a wheels guy but apparently it's all about the offsets.

Agreed, I'm nothing of a suspension person, which I why I ask the experts... and the set-up I'm going with is supposed to be fine for what I need right now...

If any problems crop up, I'll deal with them as they come....

That was me and they are. The current BMR LCAs have worse fitment than the stock LCAs do.

There is a 17" Bogart wheel that fits the Brembos and stock LCAs. If I was going with 17" rims, I'd get those. (PTS was selling them, but they must have let their sponsorship lapse because the thread has expired.)

However, I want to go with 16s because there are many more tire options for 16s. I will have to put the V6 rear brakes on it to fit 16s. Also, the stock LCAs will have to be modified OR I'll wait to see if the soon-to-be released BMR LCAs will fit.

Do you mind if I ask what LCA's you are running. I ordered the adjustable ones... and also, how wide are your rear wheels... Mine are a ten inch wheel. I could have gotten an 11 inch wheel but that throws the inner barrel closer to the LCA's if I'm thinking this through correctly...

Ok, I can't stand it...

Here is some car porn for the hardcore fanatics...

This is a true racing transmission....

Built by RSG, (Rockland Standard Gear)

SFI rated steel bell housing, mid plate, and fully enclosed tail shaft housing... As mentioned before, with the internal shifter components, there will not be any torque or flex pressures applied to the shifting mechanism...

With the Corvette triple cone synchros and upgraded blockers, 9310 Gears and Shafts... It ought to be ready to turn and burn...

I have also ordered the BMR Adjustable Lower Control Arms for the back of Brandi...

I'll have to have these to keep from striking the inner barrel of the wheel against the LCA's during launches...

Thanks Apex-Chase...
