Oh interesting, I rarely ever rub up front at my current set up, rears i rub a lot, especially the passenger side. I've had issues with rubbing on that passenger rear for the longest time now, i think the gas cap/tank area makes it more difficult to roll the fenders? idk i still to figure it out but its not terrible, just rubber peels and occasionally burn smell...

So i am thinking to maybe lower the fronts some more haha.

Thanks for saving me from making a costly mistake.
Glad i could help out lol. I know when I was debating set ups that it was kinda hard to research and really the only person i saw with full specs is TEE's amazing car...his car immediately showed me how aggressive these cars can go.

You know, i've been thinking about that (sigh $$$$$) but i've always loved this front set up...and i just got mtech rears so won't have any cash for a new front end (mtech probably if i do).

Thanks for the kind words!

Interesting, I rub a lot more on the passenger rear than the driver rear too.
