So how did he do it then?

I wanted a set of GTA wheels on my car, before learning that you couldn't fit them to standard cars, only ones with wide wheel arches.

Then I saw this car at Nogaro race track on Saturday. If the owner had been around it I'd have asked them, obviously, but no sign of anybody besides photographers and admirers near it.

I guess he's either got some very, very stiff suspension, or avoids all bumps and goes round corners at about 20mph. I presume something along the lines of the former.

Ideas? Would be great if Alfaholics made a variant of their 15" version of this to fit standard wheel arches.

The car is sitting quite high, most likely clearing the fender arches that way.

That's a high arch car, or if not, those rear arches look altered in any case.

That said, the GPRocket car has different wheels (the ones I want)... and so now I will be reading that end to end and harassing him for the detail. Indeed that’s the drivetrain I want in my Duetto, Bugger!!
