I'm not looking for mats. I don't even know how long the interior that is in my car will stay there once the car is done. Rudel does have the nicest set of RS mats I know though, I can't believe you found them in Britain. I was going to bid on them, :) but like I said I have never really been looking for them.

Whats beefier about the RS rack?


Quicker ratio rack with a shorter turn radius.

If you looked around you'll find at least 6 been/being built, some farther along than others. I could count 4 of them on the streets as we speak.

Quicker turning ratio then the svt (just by a little bit) but the turn radius of the Standard zx3 rack. (The svt had a poor turn radius)

I don't really know if the gears in it have been revised beyond that.

I would have to take a picture of the wing but the studs are close to that size. The wing isn't the easiest thing to mount and get a flush fitting on the roof.

I'm hoping I have the stages of this planned out right as money is tight right now and i would like the progress of this to remain steady until its completed.
