everyone's got a different opinion of 'wheels lining up correctly'

Okay guys, so i have news. I am going to be getting the car in about three months, and i need help quick. I figured that i am going to get these wheels.
https://www.carid.com/ns-series-whee...452173474.html

and these spacers

https://hardcoreparts.com/automotive...3-fr-s-6537803

Do you all think that would be wide enough for this kit?

https://www.ebay.com/itm/32411197712...Cclp%3A2334524

Before you all start roasting me about it being from ebay, my friend bought that kit, and he drifted in to a sand block thing and it held up very well. so, all in all do you guys think it will look good? the car is white, and im thinking of keeping the kit black
here is the car im looking at.

It's your car, build it based on your budget. If you are seeking validation from others, you may not agree with what they might say.

There's nothing wrong with eBay. You may find authentic parts or you may find cheap knock-offs. It all depends on your due diligence.

Based on your provided links of eBay and CarID, I'd recommend doing more research on parts. The price point may be very appealing but you do get what you pay for.

Just my $0.02

Am I correct to assume that the Tom's aero kit actually isn't that invasive? It seems the only cutting involved is the rear diffuser. Everything else from the side skirt, duck spoiler, front lip, bumper lip are all taped on.

Hi Favato, I appreciate the love. I bought the hood from facebook marketplace. It arrived damaged - sorry I don't remember asking the original owner where they purchased it. I have seen the V2 style version (with the middle triangular vent) on aerospeed performance and zero offset. I hope that points you in the right direction, and sorry for not being of any more help.

Hello all,

actually this post is more a question. But I didnt know where Else to put it since, surprisingly, there is no section for functional aero mods in the forum. (Or Im just too dump to find it)

So first things first, here is a pic of my self developed rear diffuser:



Now my question: Im considering to aim for the 200mph mark. Is somebody arround here expierienced with high speed behaviour of the 86 chassis in matters of aero?

To be very clear right away, I do NOT talk about giant Front splitters for timeattack racers. The car is and shall be street legal (in Germany if you know what I mean...). Im currently investigating my options to reduce overall drag while improving or at least keeping downforce (or better said lift) conditions of the car. In order to maybe giving kind of a frame, the inspiration/attitude of this build is the YellowBird Porsche. (What does not mean that I would actually compare my build with this masterpiece of automtive engineering)

Currently Im topping at round about 185-188mph, depending on conditions. The car feels still stable at those speeds and already accepted a little jump at arround 180mph without getting nervous. I had oversean a bump in the road what caused short lose of ground contact.

My current aeromods are minor. I have a guided radiator airflow by a radiator scoop & ducting, a vented hood (equal seibon TS Style), a bottom line kit equal to HT Autos (which was more intended for optical appearance, but the front lip actually makes a mesureable difference in top speed) and my rear diffuser. The car is slightly lowered on B16 coilovers, front Ride height about 3" and round about a 1" rake. Rims are currently way to wide and sticking out the fenders, what is one of the first things I will adress for drag reduction.

My planned further steps:
-changing 9.5" to 9" wheels with a Offset to ensure they are not sticking out the front silhoutte
-full flat underbody with a small exemption near the differential since I otherwise have no options to route a big enough exhaust pipe
-increasing power from currently 450 to ~520 flywheel hp
-custom setup Íhlins coilovers with spring rates and valving to match my exact wheel loads and as well some more freedom for Ride height adjustment without blocking out the dampers (Im expecting some gains concerning drag with slightly lower ride height, Im aiming for about 2" Front)

So If theres anybody out there having expierience with modifications of the 86 chassis for this kind of aero I would appriciate any contact to exchange some thoughts and knowledge.

PS: Mods, If theres any better section for this Post, please move...

Thanks in advance!

200mph? I predict one may also hit max speed limit in ecu tune, if one uses stock ecu. Wasn't there something like 235-245kmh max, even if car could have went faster? (and something like 180kmh in JDM twins).
Was going to suggest hood louvers to reduce front lift to compensate rear downforce/keep aero balance, and only then noticed mention of vented hood.

TRS's car is LS swapped I believe.
