There is no real 'need' for spacers, but I will take a pic of my car at roughly the same angle as Zillon's and post both here for visual comparison. That will be tonight after work.

The wider spacing of the wheels will give it a more confident feel, but the actual weight of the spacers isn't what throws off the handling (when too excessive), it's the overall rotational mass in relation to the fulcrum of the spindle. Arm, I believe?

Ok, back to work me

Thanks guys. I wonder if the ST is going to have components that help us out? It's already lower from the factory. I don't want much. This is purely a DD for me. I'll get another 'toy" to replace my Z06 later.
