    Making the MR2 Sub frame wider :)

    Well I thought a few of you would like to see this. No need for spacers anymore. Make a new subframe and away you go

    Nice idea, but it looks to me that the track of the car will stay the same as they have used the same MR2 subframe and running gear. I donít understand the reason for this as you would need to cut the chassis to fit this and it looks like it keeps the same track, why would someone do this. ???

    I COULD BE VERY WRONG ,BECAUSE I HAVE NOT DONE ANY WORKED ON MR2 CHASSIS BUT I THINK THIS IS A STRETCH CRADLE TO GET THE LENGHTCORRECT
    In the USA if you pay a company / person to start a plug, then it,s your plug and work ,it is not theirs to sell or trade !!

    How can that make the track wider when its using all the same parts as the original car. The axels are still the same length, so the track hasn't changed.
    Without talent experience is worthless

    Good idea. You will still have an issue finding wider axles, so budget that in if you go this route.
