Finally got time to use the real camera
Fantatsic. say what are you doing for the rear suspension and wheel/rim specs?

I've got GD LCA's up front, stock RS trailing arms at the rear and plan to run something like 17x8.5 +35 but im considering on using GD rear/axles and trailing arms

The aftermarket steel replacement ones feel the lightest to me maybe equal to my fiberglass fenders. Maybe Ill weigh them, maybe I wont.

What brand fenders do you guys have? Ian, Nike, bue car?

I'm planning to run a cheap wide front fender on my next car, and hopefully get away with rolling the rear quarters.

I've got doluck 3cm blister fenders cheapo replacement and oem ones. Although the fiberglass fenders are light I don't think there's much to be gained. Maybe a pound or two between them. If say keep stock fenders and put the money towards an oem aluminum hood rather than the fiberglass/carbon crap hoods. The Alu will be lighter.

I really want/need wide front fenders to prevent rubbing when racing. So if the cheapo wide fenders weigh similar to steel, that is awesome.

Aluminum hoods are awesome, but for the $500 price, I'll stick to my crappy fiberglass/CF hood, or I'll gut a steel one. I'm sure I crush a few hoods in the coming years, so I'd rather not spend good money on a nice hood.

Sorry for the thread-jacking Ian. Back to coupe talk everyone!
