Just the way an altezza should be. Low and wide :D Im more and more amazed by the build man! How wide was it before?

Also, you relocated the steering rack. Did you modify the hubs as well, or just swapped the ball joints around? Looking forward to seeing the finished result ;)

It was 30mm narrower before we started the wishbones on the front are not finished Jensen I didn't put up pics of them. Yes we relocated the rac to the front and used a RX7 one just made adapters for the track rod arms. The ball joints just swap around. It is exactly 90mm off the ground at the front subframe so it's really low maybe too low but we will see how it goes

Been busy trying to get the car finished for the last Itcc race of the year. Car has all the wiring finished but I still haven't started it as I'm eating to get it on the lift to fit the fuel tank should be sorted by the end of the week.
The new front suspension arms are taking shape bottom arms are finished just the upper ones to do today

So I'm back again it's been a while. Last raced the car 2.5 years ago had a small off and I was just tired or racing so the car has sat in stone motorsport since then. The F20c has been removed and after alot of head scratching and buying 3 different engines even having a 1UZFE fitted in the car but I wasn't happy with the positioning of it so I finally made a decision to go back to the 3sge and I'm going to turbo it.
Have alot of work to do to the shell some panels need replacing from the off track excursion so that will be first priority along with a full respray.
So let's see how long it takes to get right.

Nice one! :) So are you going to have this as a road car or back into racing again?
