Default 5mm spacers?

Does anyone have some that I can borrow? I know where to buy them but I want to try them out first to see if it look better before I buy. I was going to get new wheels but priorities have changed. Thanks

For a DD I would run no bigger than 5mm for a track car DO NOT RUN SPACERS, unless you have extended studs.

I have been told by race engineers that you need to have usable threads equal to or greater than 1.5 X the width of the bolt. The amount of turns differs with different types of threads.

so say the stud is 1/2 inch, you need 3/4 of an inch threaded on to the lug correct? BTW where are the pics of your new kicks?

Ya, the camber gain will tuck the rim in once there is a tire on it and the weight of the car removes the droop. But until then, all the stretched tire retards will think it is all Epic and ish.

Yep...

These wheels are nice because they have Rays Wheels, Monoblock, Forged and Volk Racing molded in. Just a quick glance will tell you these aren't Rota Grids. The normal TE37 are easy to tell if you know what you are looking for, but it is a lot harder to see the machined lip of the TE compared to the Grid in a small photo. The fact these 18X11 are 5 pounds lighter than my old 18X9.5 Rotas is a big plus too.

Not yet, I only ordered two wheels. They fit on the back of the 240, so if there were any issues with fitment on the EVO I was just going to run them on Thunderdome.

The EVO has been neglected do mainly to a lack of time. Most of my efforts are going towards the 240 right now. The NASA National Championships start in 23 days at MMP and the Thunderdome is nowhere near ready. Last night I picked up the majority of parts going into the engine rebuild, but there are still some that haven't arrived yet. We machined some new parts for the front suspension to help drop the car down another inch or more, only one side is installed so far. The list goes on and on and on and on.

Needles to say, no time for the EVO until the end of September. That's when the massive fuel system gets installed. Hopefully the new AWD Dyno will be up and running by then. If/when it comes online, I'm flying a tuner in from Cali to get the EVO running smooth on e85.

Then there are parts for the Yaris that have been sitting in my garage for 2 years now. It's getting the Biggie treatment with flares and 15X9 wheels among the long list of modifications.

So, having a full time job, random graphic projects on the side, running the Lap Battle events and basically managing a race team/tuner shop...time is obviously not on my side. I just do what I can.

Livin the dream. So, you do graphic design in addition to illustration? I've viewed [some of] your auto vectors.

Yep, my official title at work is "Art Director". Along with illustration, I'm responsible for all print ads and web design along with some video production, product photography, software and hardware GUI, etc.

wheels look good biggie



spacers u can track with are h&r spacers
I use a set on my car because unfortunately pickens are slim for 5x100 wheel selection for wide wheels and impossible to get really low offsets without paying a ton for customs
