Have you done it? I've done it. wide (Dunlop, Yok) 265s on 9" wheels, ET45 with 13.25" ride height, (lower than that is baaaad) 5mm or 15mm spacer, plenty of room. The front can probably swallow 285s. The front is *not* the issue. (though stiff FCABs are a good idea, to limit fore/aft tire movement which can be problematic)

Glad it was you that picked up the oil cooler. I wanted it soooo badly, but other things got in the way.

Hmm now you're making me want 265's but idkkk. For me the front is more of an issue than the rear because my back fenders are shaved. I know I could fit 265's on my old 9" arc's, but it would look too "Bulky" for my tastes. Once the new 9.5" arc's come in we'll see what works.

285's might be do able but you'll need a sh!t load of camber lol

Thanks man. I wonder why these aren't sold anymore..it's a great design and very simple. I know technik is out of business, but you'd think other companies would follow.

Anthony should start selling them

I hope so too! lol. Seems like the best option though, I'm a little scared of UUC's products.

To fit 9.5's up front you'll need the right suspension. My F2's would never work with 9.5's, but my AST's now will.

Exhaust looks like a winner. Question, did you expect the pipes off the muffler. To make that bend to the right?

But you're using stock shocks right? It's not the lowness that matter's, it's the clearance between the wheel and the shock.

Thanks. Especially the x-pipe . The muffler needs a custom pipe to fit because it's not made to work with the supersprint.

Yea supersprint does make one, and it's actually like $100 cheaper, but the sound is VERY conservative. Plus the Eisenmann tips look BOSS.

Eisenmann makes two kinds of mufflers, sport and race. I got the race.
