Hello all. If it's not too much of an imposition, I was hoping that one of you fine gentlemen would take a small measurement for me off of late offset 951 rear trailing arms. I could like to know...

That looks slick. It's really clean and sort of reminds me of the Porsche rear seat delete on the GT3 and GT2.
