You do good clean work, and show quality building skills. Given this is clearly your forte, maybe you could help me with a question.

 

What is the deal with the too narrow tires on the rims that expose the rim to unnecesary damage? If the cars were being driven hard into cornering situations, that exposed rim offers more opportunity for the wheel lip to "catch" on an uneven or rough surface does it not?  I have never seen any serious race car or autocross competition car, that would have the rims exposed like that, but I have been seeing this more and more on import tuners, but I don't understand the purpose. Anyone have any info?

Mark, it's purely form over function. http://www.stancenation.com/

Well it is definitely my cup of tea....Love It!!!  Your work is always amazing.  One question...what size are those TE-37s and what did you use for the barrels?  I would love to make a set like that.  Thanks!
