Hahaha. Yeah they're all the way down, Tckline has springs for light cars, I'll either get those or something else that's shorter. I could take the adjusters right out and have the perfect height, but then I risk the spring becoming "dislodged"

What makes 18" so much better than 17"?

I don't remember saying anything about them being better, but there are pros and cons of each. Don't think there is a dead rule that one is better.

The bigger the rim, the smaller the tire sidewall. This is desirable for handling with street tires but higher end R comps have such stiff sidewalls that this isn't a factor. So other than brake clearance, it's just for looks. I've heard people say it's for weight savings but that's asinine, rubber weighs less than aluminum.

I've got a shopping cart ready to go on SummitRacing.com with my cooler, lines and fittings, plus all my gauges ready to go as soon as I have the cash to order haha.
