Looks good!! What wheels are you using?
It's a real shame about the stupid un-common offset/wheel issue...

im current running the 18" XHPs (AU offset) -- see the hub adaptor :( and stockies on the rear :P

but thats ok, because the ute isnt really getting driven anywhere -- except for picking up the new motor and gearbox this saturday

gonna be chucking on BA F6 rims on it (copy rims, in E series offset)


the +17 offset isnt a big issue... because they will sit inside the guards.
(since 36mm hub adaptors + 8.5" wide rims + 255 tyre on front... just poked out of the guards)

Am I seeing things or does that hub adaptor have no hub support for the wheels?

What do u mean macca theres 5 studs there for the wheel to be supported on as well as it being bolted to the existing hub over the original studs...

I have the same adaptors all round and fully engineered as being safe and road worthy

If I move to WA I want the engineers name, he/she must be pretty easy, there is no centre spigot to support wheels, the studs are not meant to be the only thing to support wheels, "AND" this is stated in the Australian "National Code of Practice for Light Vehicle Modifications " which Western Australia complies with for vehicle modifications.

the stop isnt as sudden as i thought it would be... but thats a good thing i guess... it stops better than before.

its definately worth the cash... since there's going to be more mass on the front end, and power as well (due to upcoming mods)... so its a good thing

the company is actually doing 343mm with 4 pot caliper kits for E series for $2200 now

thats gotta s**t you after spending that money on the twin piston setup.
ah well, the t2 ts50 has smaller brake pads then a ba xt has, so its all in progression isnt it
