Oh yes, the hook is real! lol. That's great. You've probably already realized the $/lap ratio this type of racing provides.

So, the defsport hats have too much offset to work in the rear. I...

I think it all depends on whether or not the coilover body has two modes of adjustment; spring perch and threaded on brackets that mount to upright. That way you can capture the spring and preload...

Yes, should be good. You gain a theoretical extra (0.5" + 10mm) = 0.894" (22.7mm) of clearance between the two.

Yes they should, but I haven't test fitted it myself. They almost fit inside the barrel of a 15x8 Rota Grid so I'm assuming the 16" Z32 should work. May need a spacer.

Definitely a nice rotor. That diameter rotor still won't get in you the clear of the mounting ears. Also, the offset will be an issue, at least with a Wilwood caliper. I suppose you can make a Z32...

Is there a local company that makes 12.2" x 0.81" rotor rings with a 8 x 7" rotor hat bolt circle? Doesn't need to be Wilwood.
