Gforce Mini tubs

We get lots of emails and phone calls asking for wheel tubs. We keep them in stock all the time but never had them on our web site until now.

We patterned these mini tubs after the set we did on our shop car.

There are allot of shops that we sell these to as well as individuals that wanted to tackle the mini tub job.

In the past we shipped them unassembled and the customer had to put them together.
We now ship them assembled so you dont have to mess with it.

Price is $149. plus shipping.

Here is the link to the mini tubs on our web site
http://www.shop.gforce1320.com/produ...&categoryId=17

You will need more then just mini tubs to get big meats under your car, you will need to modify the control arms (or have us do it) and we suggest (but some dont) that you run our coilover kit.

And here are a few photos.

Thanks
Chris

You have to trim the side panels to fit the mini tubs but once you do that it all fits back in just like factory.
We have our full rear interior in our car right now if you want to come take a look.
I'm into the full interior thing so we have been racing all year with the back seats and all the interior trim panels in place.

We charge $1800. and it takes about a week. Not the cheapest around but we take our time to make sure its done right and looks good.

Thanks

Do these tubs need to be welded in or can a body seam adhesive be used?

If I weren't going for as big of a tire as possible, but rather just a 305-315, do you think your tubs, notched factory control arms, and a shock spacer would do the trick? I have cut fenders, and would widen a set of factory 18s inward. I also have longer ARP wheel studs and would use a spacer to push the wheel outward a bit.

We weld them in but you can also pop rivet or adhesive them in. If you use adhesive then I would suggest pop rivets for added insurance.

You can do the 305 as long as you modify the control arms to gain the needed clearance.

I don't see the modified control arms on your site anymore, but I remember seeing them before, or am I just thinking of threads here?
