Actually Joel, many of us have 16 inch wheels and those who have 17 inch of course makes for a harsher ride. Since I do not know what Carey is using, my point was simply that better brakes might be advisable and asking the question to Carey might be worthwhile.
The front end of these cars are really light so lock up is a given at times hence the better braking and the most tire you can get on the ground the better for safety even if all you do is cruise at 70mph.
You are in good hands with Carey but I went through the exercise with my Henry at IM, and in the end I upgraded to a full 911 front end for those reasons. I had a beam front end before. Carey's new car has a more modern front end and frame which is excellent. In the end it's you car so you decide what you want and what your dream will consist of. Feel free to disregard this comment
Carey has been very generous to encourage our hobby and our forum here with his suggestions and help.
