The car goes in for a 75mm Apex stud conversion on Thursday.

They clear the rear brakes by mere milimeters. I'm pretty sure this would only work with the forged Arc8-R fetlaturing a revised barrel shape. Others have had interference with the brake pad vibration dampers that required trimming when trying to fit the flow-formed Arc8.
Anymore pics of the rear and entire car with the swift springs?
