Looking for some suggestions guys... In the middle of purchasing some Rota RB's for my 4 door. 15x7 +12 offset. I know it's harder to fit them in the back because the 4DR isn't as easy as the coupe. Keep in mind the rear quarters have already been rolled. What do you guys think about the offset? too aggressive? running 280zx struts up front. also have slotted rear x member. Some help would be appreciated.

Dave Patten sells VTO wheels and he recommends a +18 in 15x7.

I ran a 15x6+12 ZXT wheel on my old wagon and everything fit with 195/50s.

Yea there's a lot more space on a coupe. That car Dave was talking about was running stock struts. From what I heard, the zx struts will bring it in 3/4"...

68 Wagon - I wish every one would have a list like you just made on the first page of their build threads. The only thing you left out was to ad a picture because I would love to see your cars stance. Thanks again for sharing 68 Wagon!

Here's a pic of the VG with the Boffenkamp air damb removed. I repainted it but am considering an Orange Line bre style from Futofab so I can run air cooled brakes like Bertvorgon's.

here is a pic with the Boffenkamp installed....decided that brake ducts like Keith has are not needed as track days here are unavailable.

General suggestion is to start with equal rates front-to-rear and tune from there. You've got way soft rear rate compared to front. 510 ride actually improves when you stiffen the rear, you don't get so much of the pogo action.

Just saw this message...sorry but no, actually takes quite a bit of time to build these, and do not have the time now, too many of my own silly projects going on.
