I went through the first set of rims on it within a week. The second set after about another 3 months. I bent one of my mum's Camry rims over the summer. Idk if it's where I drive or how I drive, but it's bad.

The 15x8s don't rub, but you may be rolling your rear arches if you're much lower then H&R Sports.

BREAKING NEWS: CLINT IS ALMOST COMPLETELY DISMANTLED (and some is for sale)

Yeah, my rear arches are already rolled and pulled. Running H&R Cup kit. It's too damn low (or oil pan smasherific!).

Thanks for the info, man. You're making quick work of that shell.

Wuzie wanted me to remove and install his windshield, of which I have no experience doing. If someone wants to do this, Speedy quoted him $140.

Update: Got the flywheel back from the machine shop! Apparently it was REALLY bad. The last guys had taken a wire wheel on a drill to it and the machinist said it took 15/1000 to get it smooth.

It's down on the back to change the offset to fit in the M50 + G260, and lightened as well (down to 15 lbs from 19)

Ha! I found out I was misinformed, the $140 quote was for them to install it! I had to provide glass. Screw that, Im grabbing yours and doing it myself. I'll keep you posted.

4 lbs lighter? Nice. How much does it cost to resurface it, ballpark range?

Well I take all my machine work (car and motorcycles) to the place on Bronson, across from the McDonald's, beside the Drumond's gas bar. Resurfacing costs $90, but it's perfectly flat, done on a flywheel specific machine.

Dave is great there, highly recommended. (though he is pricey, that flywheel cost me $190 for machining and lightening)

Good to get a first hand recommendation on a machine shop.

Normally, I'd agree, but I had already slept and was up for a 5am datacenter appointment to change cabinets for all my servers.

YEaahhh...BOW CHICKA WOW WOW!!

HOWEVER...

Today my friend Simon and I cut Clint into tiny pieces.

First we cut off the roof, then the backseat and trunk, then the front past the firewall, then the floor out.

Much fooling around...

IT'S A VERT!


NEEDZ MOAR LOWZ...


And one of the big reasons the car was parted out in the first place. (more of the same on the drivers side)
