I want it for my track build. 9" or 10" tires in the rear would be nice without poke... Omfg
that was my original plan too.....but the metal versions are IMPOSSIBLE to track down nowadays. coming from someone who has measured....you COULD get a 9" wheel under the fiberglass fenders without poke....and if the goal was traction for a track build, you would more than likely not be tucking the tire enough to worry about contact with the backside/inside of the arch. I have 8" wide team dynamics on mine, with about 1/4" to spare on the outside before being even with the face of the arch, and an easy 3/4"+ inner clearance before having contact with any suspension componants...and that's with focus-central coil-over sleeves/springs over the shocks out back....
