Ihave 235-35-19 Conticontact 5P on RSe14 wheels an d did not have to touch anything to make it work. Not a single scratch on the tires... But I did not go for lower coilovers... yet !
I do not think it will make much of a difference as long as I don't slam it.
Diggin this out of the waaay backyard.
Havent updated much as I havent done any more mods. Took it to some shows though. I have plans for something in the works that nobody with a Golf R has done yet in the US. Will post up when I begin the mock up.
Lots more pics in my flickr.
The parts have started rolling in.
Got some "cheapo" pads to mock things up until I decide what pads I really want to run.
It REALLY hurt paying $70 for these bolts/washers/nuts but time is money and I didnt have to source anything, just click the button and it shows up at my door.
Should I keep one of these colors or do something new?
People keep saying red which would go with the red taillights on the car and is classy/classic OEM+ Porsche style. But I've been thinking about doing a little throwback to the days of old and doing R32 blue? Is that not cool because its not an R32? I feel like R32 blue will be pretty bada** looking but still understated, classy and VW OEM+ style.
More brake updates. Stoptech stainless lines showed up today. They are MKIV R32 front lines. They bolt directly to the Brembo calipers with no other hardware necessary. Tonight or tomorrow I should be able to get one of these calipers mocked up so I can check for rotor fitment, wheel clearance etc. I'm getting super excited now!
MKV and MKVI ends are a hoop and require a banjo bolt setup to go into the caliper. MKIV R32 cable ends are a 45 degree elbow with a threaded floating nut as seen below. I prefer this style, less parts is better.
Proof the lines bolt right up to the caliper.
Kinda regretting selling mine now....
