I know this comes up with reasonable regularity, in fact I even started a relevant thread myself HERE a couple of years ago ..... BUT...... the latest issue of VolksWorld has got me twitching again :lol:
I note in the 'Staff Cars' pages one of the staffers suffered a catastrophic failure whilst...
I've just been to see this Marathon Beetle to sort rear shocks...fuck me it's radical but at the same time cool as :)
This is static, but modified somewhat ;) A few of you might know it.

Sorry, i did a search but couldn't find what i'm looking for, i'm sure it's probably been covered thousands of times on here.
As the title says, am i right in thinking you should not have wheels that stick out from the arches?
I know 'rat rods' have no arches, how do they get away with it...
Just been looking at Mays issue, now don't get me wrong, I like lowered cars. But is the split not taking it a bit far?
7 mm of ground clearance, running 135's, so about 3 inches of sidewall. One blow out/flat on the front and its running on the front beam. Two and it's got no steering.
