      2 questions:

      you wouldnt be using the stock steering wheel.. are you?
      and, why sparco? just want to know the reasons of why this over the competition...

      All of our road course race cars since I was a kid have run Sparco seats and harnesses so I guess its just a personal preference thing and also the PRO ADV fits me perfect. I have bought 4 of them now for 3 different cars and I love them.

      And our Turbo R32 runs one of these

      That looks fantastically uncomfortable, do they custom make it to measure? Cause there is no friggen way i would fit in that.

      Yeah they can custom make them for your body and it is uncomfortable but it is very safe. They are mainly designed for Stock cars and Drag cars but they have road course ones as well.

      Oh and we are not using the stock steering wheel. That will be gone very soon.

      Mounting seats has got to be one of *the* most annoying tasks possible. I just did it the other night on my e36. Good work

      ok, thats what i wanted to know...

      whenever i do the seats and the whole interior upgrade, i plan on doing it with Sparco stuff... seats, steering wheel, seat belts, rails, etc... they are good and properly priced...

      We will hopefully be throwing the engine and turbo back in the car at the end of the week or early next week.

      We need some suggestions on wheels....

      This week I will be ordering wheels for this project and we have a few wheels in mind but are open to suggestions....

      So far I am looking at the

      Rotiform Forged Race - Roc Wheels



      Rotiform Forged Race - TMB Wheels


    10. 07-17-2011 12:25 AM #85
      TMBs look faster

      You should check out some of the Neuspeed forged race wheels. They have a couple different styles and arent too crazy expensive. If not them, some lightweight Raderwerks rims would be nice. Check out the LW-10s. Only 19lbs for a 18" rim aint bad but Id go alittle smaller then that.

      Neither... CCW forged or if you must have 3 piece, I suggest 17" CCW Classic Race's... They start at 2300 a set and if you f*ck up a lip or inner, they are very cheap. Like $175 IIRC.. Check em out

      Well our heads are still spinning here on which wheels to choose. Honestly we might just opt for something light and cheap because we eventually would like to have 2 sets since we will be tracking it all the time. So the 3 piece forged wheels might be out unless a wheel sponsor steps up in a major way!

      Just another reason to drop the front money on CCW classics. They have flat rate $175 on lips and barrels, so if you break either or, its $175 to replace it. Thats going to be cheaper to replace a lip or barrel for $175 than it will 2-300 for a whole wheel

      Yeah honestly the more I look the more I am leaning towards the CCW wheels...

      For light and cheap there is always the rpf1. great wheel cheap and looks pretty good too. There is also the new pf01 not quite as light but i have heard the road feel is fantastic.

      Still, CCWs are ****ing awesome. Get them! lol
