    Re: Renault Duster

    Offset is relative. From Renault's OEM, they consider theirs as neutral and you move relative to the OEM setting. A negative offset rim will move the wheel more inboard, but could foul the steering,...

    My only experience with Detroit lockers was back in my drag racing days. It's purpose was to only go straight down the strip. Turning at the end was a real bear.

    My log says less than 10 seconds, but I start in third by slipping the clutch for launching. A different tranny should improve the numbers.

    Our stock motor produces 80 kW. I'm probably just over 100 kW. Given our piston displacement and revs, my ideal single pipe size is 57 mm, which will see me to 138...
