Default GC w/ GD track width?

I remember seeing a few cars that basically used the full GD STI suspension setup. I understand it widens the track of the car quite a bit. For those who have had it done or know about it, what are your opinions?? I remember seein a silver one recently that had STI control arms and all the subframes...it put alot of negative camber which is something I really don't want to do in the long run (tires = $$).

Somebody want to chime in on this one?

some have GDB everything, it seems the isue is the top strut mounting point.

others have a hybrid of GDB everything besides for control arms. you get a bit of the widetrack, but not as crazy as to cause severe camber issues.

I built a RS using all GDB subframes,arms,ect. I didnt use the GDB struts but instead went with GC spec coil-overs.
Using USDM STi wheels and stock tires it would rub the sidewalls bad in the corners.
Switching over to Pirrelli Nero M&S (stock size) and there was no rubbing issues.
Although I never did it, rolling the fenders should eliminate rubbing with the stock STi tires

I've got stock STI wheels and tires now, rolled the fenders and the side rubbing went away..its the rubbing up top that annoys me. I'm raising the car up so it should be alright.

Do you have pictures of this build?

I saw a silver one that had all the work done..I knew I should have saved it. I know this has been done before, I just want to see what kind of issues I'll run into.
