18 Claw`s would be very nice indeed
Hopefully no more than 30 to 40 but it will serve a road/track purpose not just for looks bud, I know what you mean about excess rubber, I think it is down to the Michelins that came with the car, my previous Goodyear stilo 17`s were the same profile but had much less rubber..very strange lol

Re: My Little Red Devil

She is looking good. Drop it 40mm and an inch wont be noticable on the wheels. I love the Claws but they will look better black or Anthracite maybe with a bit of red detailing the protruding clip sort of bits.

Thanks Stu, yours is prime tho

The alloys are staying exactly as they are mate, honestly lol I am after performance as you well know and thats it, suspension, exhaust system and some serious engine tuning, sorted

Re: My Little Red Devil

Nice motor! Also worth thinking about some spacers to bring out the rear wheels a bit...

Thank you for your comments

I will see how it goes with the new suspension kit, I want to go for something a little different than what i could have had with the GP. Koni are the brand that I am heading towards at the moment but the claw alloys will stay on no matter what I am a performance freak as Stu has already established, I also have a serious desire for compressed induction pressure ...it is brave, ambitious, tried and tested and failed before by many peeps on this forum, expensive, probabilities...?? still the desire is there

Re: My Little Red Devil

Hmmm yes you're right there have been one or two attempts at forced induction I believe, but all ended in tears. You're a brave man with deep pockets...

Yes brave but without deep pockets Yellow Peril believe me. Turbo charging is simply a desire but to be honest with you it will problably never actually happen not in my life time ownership of this fine specimen, it is far too expensive and the uncertainties do win over any positive outcomes, mind you tho the Greek chaps over the continent seem to be the only to have accomplished this desire so far

Re: My Little Red Devil.

Just wanted to share my six hour dedication this weekend in to loving the red beast.
This consisted of a wash down and scrub, full bodywork shammy, then the hardest of all tasks...removing sticky tar, painful but got there in the end after 1.5 hours or so ..., full polish over on the bodywork, windows, headlights, trims, front grill, wipers, alloys and interior dashboard.

Products used:







Please fell free to comment
