Engine Cage, Front Suspension and Rear Wheels/Spacers...

So after coming down numerous "home stretches" (roll cage home stretch, fiberglass home stretch, paint home stretch, interior home stretch, vinyl home stretch, etc.) it appears as if the NISMO Stuff "Retro-Runner" is coming down its final 2011 home stretch.  After this it will be ready to run (pretty much) in whatever events I can manage during the remainder of the year.

The full on desert setup will wait for the winter of '11-'12 and will include the fuel cell, race radio, locker for the rearend, etc.

With the completion of the wheels, tires, spacers and long travel front suspension and engine cage, she should be ready for any hill climb, rally cross and maybe even a stage rally event in the remaining six months of '11.

These pictures are take at Cyrus House's shop in South Burlington, VT and reflect the new wheels, tires, spacers for the rear, beginning of the engine cage and parts of the long travel front suspension.  The rate at which this is moving now, I hope to see it completed by the end of the week and begin testing immediately thereafter...

i had this one with a test fit of the newly-painted body and with some different wheels and tires. It was starting to look like it would turn out nice and with a good "stance." Wheels And Tires

Hi,

Very good information in this blog! wheel spacers are used merely to extend the wheels outward to give it a more interesting look than function - analogous to installing skirting and spoilers. I found more information in customadeonly.com and you also get more information about wheel spacers..
