So a ford nine inch is 288.6mm, the r230 is 1.4mm larger then the ford nineinch, so ive been told its stronger. So the r200 is 200mm (3.9 to 1) 7.9 inches. Is this correct? What sort of lsd would you recommend for the R200? This car will be street and drag. I have been reading up on the carbon clutch type 700-1000$. This might not be the forum to ask this, but wat sort of roll cage/ fram bracing/rearend support/front end support would you recommend, so that the car doesnt rip apart? I have been looking at a few things which were a roll cage and the STI has a support package that one can buy. I saw this in a magizene which really interested me. It was made so that you were not need to have a roll cage on the street. it had all underbody supporting and strut tower supports and behind the seatfloor brace. Is any of this worth it? COuld i adapt some of these ideas so that when the car hooks up on launch i dont crush it like a tin can?
