Yeah, almost shocking!

Mark: not custom for me, its just a (top of the line) 944 aftermarket part. Not really a shelf part tho, as I had to wait a few months for them to be made.

With the new shocks, I also decided to change the arms from turbo to regular n/a 944 ones for a little less track width.
Here you can see where the difference in width (1 inch or 25mm) comes from. The arms themselves are the same casting ;-)

Mounted my old front disk set-up to the rear where it originally came from. Also test mounted the rear coil-overs:

Hi Wally, good to see you back on it!

I'd have to see the vent design but it looks like you have the disc on the wrong way around or the wrong side (the bell is obviously correct)...

Richard,
You are absolutely correct! I used to think this was more logical, but factory indeed mounted them the other way round.

Did you have them all mounted backwards?

The logic is that air flows radially out through the disc, so in by the hub and out by the wheel rim, having them the other way around effectively tries to oppose the normal airflow by scooping it back in resulting in poor cooling..

How's the new engine coming along?

The above pic is from the front left wheel, so that should be mounted correctly?

The engine building is holded till funds allow further progress...

Yes, I saw the front left was correct, just wondered whether you had mounted them all as the rear were..

Look forward to more progress
