I want to know how much ground clearance there is at the front bumper on a PZ under maximum braking in order to estimate the limits for extending the bumper downwards and fitting a splitter.

Does anyone know this, have side-on photos from a track day that I can use to estimate the clearances or have the [F & R] spring rates (force against length) that I can use to calculate the clearances?

Now back to one, a white R3, plus a Honda Accord winter car. Gone but not forgotten: 04 Tit Grey 231, 06 Copper Red Evolve (231), 09 VR R3, 10 Aurora Blue R3, 06 Black PZ; RX87 project car ;-( ; 04 White with Greddy turbo conversion ;-(

Buying a used RX8 turbo is like marrying a stripper.

I am afraid I dont know these, but one simple option would be to possibly use bump stops? this would allow you to keep the standard suspension setup.

I wouldn't be alone if I did! :twisted:
But to be honest it's a bit too near.
To park the car a few yards from where I kept everyone awake in the middle of the night (the only time it's quiet enough) would probably be a bit unsubtle! :D
