it's mine. yeah that's the correct wheel sizes. i just rolled my fenders aggressively with a slight pull. some cutting of my bumper and this metal lip part in the rear. tire size is 255/35/18.

i do not have crazy negative camber like stanced people lol just normal street performance settings. -2.5 f, -2.0 r (i think, the rear could be less, i don't remember).

nah no shaved. the negative camber is normal lol basically a little more than the natural camber you would get just lowering the car.

I wish i went but wasnt feeling well on sunday.

I love the concave ARC-8s. Looking to step down to 18, tired of my black 19 VB3, had them for a few years and was considering at set up like yours, now i gotta find someone who wants to work on my fenders lol.

I second the notion of the round 2! Sounds like it was amazing last time. I regret not knowing about it. I'll bring veggie burgers!

I'm down. I've been driving all the way up to Pasadena for the 626 meet every other Friday. It'd be nice to go to a meet a little closer to home and meet new people.
