They are very real. When the tyre slips behind the fender, they look huge. Before they looked big, but not too big.

Like I said, it need some small adjustments. Ordered my DNA racing camberplates just yet, hope they will be here soon. Then the wheels in the back will tuck in a bit more, allowing more travel and the refitting of the Airrex dampers. Can't wait, because at the moment, the alignment is off. Steeringwheel is slightly off to the right and pulls a little. But don't want to do it twice in 2 weeks. ;)

    Do you have any pics of what the car looks like on the 16" Team Dynamics on moderately lowered (see ~2-3cm lower than stock) ride height?

    This is a setup I am interested in hence the question. Thanks.

    I want bigger brakes in the future and 16" is a nogo then.

    Just came back from reallignment. Car was way off in the tracking, which resulted in very unpredictable behaviour. Now she drive like it should be again.  :) Very happy now. The camberplates have some leadtime, have to be patient. But for now, I can drive and enjoy my 500 again. :)

    Nice one.

    Just fitted DNA Rear camber plates myself. Nice little bit of kit.

    Question: Do these plates come instead of a normal plate or do they add to the total package? If the latter, the thickness of the plates will reduce the space I will win in terms of clearance. I calculated that the edge of the rim will come in 7.5mms, but without taking in account the thickness of the plate.

    They literally slide in behind the stub axle so technically they do add to the width but it will be very minimal, there is nothing to them.

    I am running 17 x 8 et30.

    Few week ago, had another photoshoot.










    Next project will be the carbon dash. Already have it at home, but need an exchange because the panel has a scratch around the 3 buttons. Exterior alterations will come to make all chrome gold and respray the wheels to gold/gold-black.

    Normally I would, but since the reactions here are almost non-existent, I will not take the trouble to start a complete new thread and keep it up to date.

    A few new photos of the Black Beast. First one is taken on the 9th of April at Midlake Pre Summer Show 2017. The other 2 were made during Automaxx Streetpower 2017 at Zandvoort Circuit.

    The Photographer is great and the photos are superb.  :thumb:
