Default Enclosed Trailer People - Tiedowns for race cars

I just purchased an enclosed trailer. I'm looking for sugestions on how best to secure my race car inside. On the open trailer I had run straps through the knuckle in the rear, and holes in the control arm in the front. I won't be able to do this on the enclosed model as I can't reach that far under the front of the car to get to the arm and it would be very tricky to do it reaching behind the wheel. Car has a front splitter that extends all the way back to the tranny in the front, and a diffuser from the diff back in the rear.

I had looked at wheel nets, however because of the ride height I would have to have a roller in the front so the rachect strap cleared the fender wheel. The car has CCW Classic wheels, so axle straps won't fit through the spokes.

Ideas, thoughts?

Thanks,

Duncan

sounds like somebody needs a couple tow eyes on front of his race car

try to find tieback or axle straps with sewn loops on the end (as opposed to metal snaps or buckles), I bet you could thread them thru the wheel spokes

if all else fails, wedge that baby in there with extra tires!

After talking to the nice people at Mac's Custom Tie downs, I'm doing over the wheel straps with idler's to get the rachet out of the wheel well.
