So Kevin and I decided to add a limited slip rear axle..

It is the Mazda limited slip rx7 axle..

So far it's working very nice.. I will be learning the new handling. It is quite different…

I'm gonna be sad to give it to the body shop..

Kevin made the point that the spare tire may well have saved more damage. The overrider creased the back panel right up to the top of the tire..

Finished putting it together.. Took it to Kevin D's place to put in the windshield. But by the time I got there I didn't want to put it in.. That was a fun drive with the wind in the face..

They are 16x7inch +22 backspacing. I run different size spacers front and rear to center them in the wheel wells. That way they can be rotated, and I can put a rear on the front if I need to for a spare, as my spare will not clear the front brakes.

Great pictures and beautiful car. It's good to see some of the 311s crowd on here also.
