just found some pictures of it ,but the only problem is they are below the spring which makes them very low to the ground. i would not have much ground clearance from the front hanger bracket to the ground . that could not be legal for road use (only at track days and the drags )

The Bluestreak Perfomance kit is actually done to have as much ground clearance as possible. Part of what Daniel was aiming for is to have a street use product that is tried and tested on the track.

I can't say I'm concerned about ride height with the Caltracs. This isn't about , and I know on technicalities it will be illegal (engine through the bonnet, need to cut bracing.....)

Slowly, having dramas sourcing a box, because people either want drug money or they won't make it possible to arrange collection. Going to Try convince my brother a T400 with a 6000rpm stall is the way to go. At least that way it's semi streetable, yet it's going to be stupid fast and ultimately fun as all hell.

If you locate a box in Sydney Brett I could probably pick it up for you and arrange for it to be sent up.

Thanks Matt! Sick of getting screwed around, have cash waiting for a box, but no one seems to want it. Never thought that would be an issue.....
