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.

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.

Ramey, I wish you were not on the other side of the nation. I would love to borrow those front wheels to help measure my required inner fender modifications.
Even with a 10" tread width tire, I am finding it within 1mm of the painted sheet metal. I am thinking of bringing the whole inner inside the fender itself so I can bend it back towards the rear of the opening.
18X11 fronts with a 315/30/18 may not be possible on my particular car without tweaking the painted metal a lot.

Do you plan to go to a Watts setup eventually or does the leaf setup work too well to consider it?
