I haven't read the whole thread but if you're still thinking about 295s up front then you'll wanna consider a frame notch or some fender flares (including cutting away some of the stock fender). 255s on a lowered car will rub when you race. I have tested this. lol At ~2 degrees negative camber all of the rubbing occurred on the frame. With more neutral camber you'll rub the top of the wheel arch during corners. With 295s you'll likely have both problems at the same time.
I like the concept and I wish you luck.
I appreciate the feedback. I'm puttubg corvette c4 front suspension under the front. I'm not sure how it'll handle but I don't plan on the 295s anymore kind of a pipe dream and as the power goals rise the dream of auto crossing this car kinda gos away. Don't get me wrong I'm still doing the front end swap. And I will still probably go make an *ss of myself on an auto x course but the car will mainly be just a good driver and straight line performer. Don't need to pull 1g on a skid pad like I originally thought I did

Haven't had much time or money to do anything besides work and building the barn this gives you an idea of how much more room I'll have. It's literally double plus quiet a bit. Won't have many car updates till this money pit is finished. Thanks for looking guys

Ok guys finally got to a stopping point on the barn haven't really touched the car in a long time. But I had to walk past it to work on the barn everyday and everyday I did there was something that just couldn't have the roof the way it was I know some of you watch my videos but in one of them I show that I pie cut the roof all the way back to about 6" from the rear then spread the drip rail out to meet the from door drip edge. This caused the drip edge to have a shape of an m the b pillar being the middle. I finally couldn't take it and recut the roof straighted up the drip rail and chopped the rear c pillar 1". I'll have the video up for you guys soon but here are a few pics

The YouTube content is getting a little boring. I have been doing alot of tedious stuff because the car build budget turned into the barn build budget. Once it gets a little cooler out it'll be alot easier to work out there today was 94 here in Michigan which is really weird to be this hot this late in the year
