This Is How We Do It: When Good Fitment is Not Good Enough

Do you ever wonder how we get such aggressive fitment’s on our cars and make it look so effortless?  Well it is usually anything but that.  Lots of measuring and fine tuning goes into our setups.

Chris “CubanGS” out of SoCal, had his suspension tuned to fit his wheels as well as the overall look of the car.  Having too much negative camber in the rear and none/very little in the front, makes the vehicle look broken.  By having it very similar, it makes the ride more aesthetically pleasing.  Check out his before and after pictures

When you modify the lower control arm’s, you usually do not gain much clearance since you are just pushing the wheel out.  It is done for the look, over the gain.  The angle of the tire stretch however, is slanted and helps with clearance.  The wheel will not tuck this way, it is just pushed out further from the bottom.

Who in their right mind would sacrifice good tire ware in exchange for a look that will not ultimately help much with clearance?  A real VIP enthusiast who values the execution of the ride over functionality would.

The custom “Studio” RCA’s are much wider than stock, pushing the bottom out 35mm’s.

He went from 0 camber up front to -7.5 degrees.

You can see the ass from the front.
