Looking good James. Whats the story with the steering spacers? I would have thought that with the car height lowered and arms spaced upward you would increase bump steer.

I will have to play with ride height when it has weight in it but the steering arms move it back aswell as up so it all depends on what it is like when i am driving as i have quite abit of suspension set up to do

True. Loving the Nardi steering wheels by the way, particularly the silver one!
