wide arches
« on: March 09, 2008, 02:02:44 pm »
i was looking at your articles section and the main picture with the g40 with wide arches which has just taken off. what arches are they. they look different to berg cup ones and the bumpers have extentions on them. are these available to buy or are they metal extention arches

ps great site by the way

this:


I don't know anything about it, just a cool image I found.  I'd guess it's all custom fabricated stuff though.

Advanced Autosport Technologies used to sell the full kit. I tried contacting them about 3 months ago, about it but never got a response. Although I cant find it on their site now.

What makes you say that? Seems awfully pointless going to all that trouble to redesign the bumper to incorporate a gap for a FMIC, but not actually have one.

it might be a 1.4 16v on throttle bodies if it's a berg cup racer.  I can't even remember where I got the image from now.

its not a G40, its a 1.3 16v GrpH rally car, on bodies, makes 180bhp. the bumper is designed to house a massive oil cooler and flow more air to the rad and thats it.

oh and, that body kit is £2600
