17x10s and 275s, the BSP Minimum! T3h_clap’s BSP STi

Building a streetable BSP car isn’t too hard. You just have to make sacrifices. Sacrifices to Driveability, and Ultimate BSP Preparation.

1.) How much blood do I want in my urine? 10k/8k or 14k/12k?

2.) NVH “WHAT? I Can’t hear you”

3.) How am I supposed to fit 17x10s and 275s in my backseat!? 😀

Is it possible to build a BSP car without these sacrifices? yes, but you give up speed and leave time on the course where ever tenth counts.

I figured it was time to do a little article on my own car, T3h_Clap.

Karlton has found that middle ground, the middle ground also happens to include a few sets of 9.5″ wheels!!

Karlton planned on not modifying this car at all and just running it for fun in A Stock. (We all know how this story pans out)
