Thanks for that, just wanted confirmation before I buy them, because to get these to the UK cost over 500 so want to get it right.

I ran those tires on stock suspension on stock wheels with no rub at all. Definitely a must on these cars.

Definitely. Went from a 2.0 to consistent 1.8s only wish I had a lsd so I could really hook hard.

That's good news, I have the Quaife diff so looking at some nice 60ft times.
All I have to do now is find a US supplier that will ship to the UK at a good price, any ideas ?.
