    Hi Dave.

    We have custom inner fenders designed and built by our in-house fabricator. The 315 and 18x11 would of course have no chance with stock inner fenders.

    Crazy thing is, we are using factory spindles. The car works incredible with the #cornermax system on it.

    I need to look into this, an 18x11 on the stock spindle and full range of motion(steering angles).

    The tires rub at full lock. They never rub on the street or road race track. Of course it's key that the inner fenders are modified.

    I need to modify my inner fender liners as it is, my turbo takes up some of that real estate.

    The UMI '71 Camaro and lead mechanic (and really good driver) Roger Irvine with crew chief Nate Peterman (and really good UMI engineer) won the Northeast Musclecar Challenge this past weekend. This car features our CornerMax front suspension and steel leafs out back with a prototype adjustable sway bar and some good shocks. Power is NA LS3.

    Those inner finders and chassis parts look awesome ... are you also making the lower adjustable spoiler?

    Also the website is missing all these glorious parts.
