Are his front fenders trimmed? Hard to tell from this angle, but it looks like it?

Or maybe it's a flare?

Yeah they are cut to put them up front too.

i'm just going to throw out an idea here- might not work... what if someone produced a spindle where the dampener mount was extended inboard 10-15mm or 20mm? would it even throw off suspension geometry? would it throw it off enough that it couldn't be corrected with adjustable suspension arms?

another thought this thread is provoking is scrub radius. at what point does it start to become detrimental in these super wide setups on our cars?

It seems pretty unnecessary - all of the interference issues are pretty solvable and the car has plastic fenders anyway - You'd probably get more bang for your buck rigging up an SLA setup rather than try to re-engineer the strut setup. BMW did exactly this with the large platform - ditched struts for a double wishbone setup

Scrub radius, I would think, would start to become an issue anytime you have to use a wheel offset down in the teens up front. If you're in the 20's somewhere, you're pretty close to the factory wheel centerline, you've just pushed the wheel and tire inboard AND outboard. Once you start adding all that additional wheel and tire outboard, and can't go inboard anymore, you're going to start to need a bigger boat. Luckily these cars have pretty stout power steering bceause with that quick rack, it'd be pretty awful otherwise

You can experiment with scrub radius stuff here:

Positive scrub radius up front will make the car very unstable under braking and will accelerate tire wear. Out back on a RWD car, it's my understanding that it actually provides some benefit with regards to caster.

Well the PS cooling isn't that stout.
