Just read this whole thread and my mind is blown.

I'd love to check this car out if I'm ever up towards Charlotte and shake your hand, sir. Amazing.

Phenomenal build. Absolutely awesome. Was hoping to find more information so I could put something like this together and it honestly seems a bit daunting though. As I have no fab skills. Mechanics and electrical are no problem.

When you did your hub conversion/brake upgrade, do you think your wheel mounting surface changed (hub to fender/hub to strut dimensions)? Also, with this wheel setup, how much clearance do you have to the fender liners and the strut bodies?

Sweet build!

204fozzy, hub conversion kept the same as stock ( at least stock with sti suspension) hub location. wheel setup is 18x10-0 offset, compared to the 17x8 stock sti wheel there is 28mm more clearance to the strut, and 78mm closer to the fender, hence why then fender flares were needed.

Nice work man! Just about to pick up a fozzy that looks almost identical to where you started. The suspension half of your build is going to help immensely!
