    I don't have that sort of information.


    I have one pic!

    Thanks, looks pretty beefy. Sounds like I gotta try it with my 350mm

    I've got a couple variations of that pic that Gilles posted. Appears they were all taken on the same day. An internet search will yield those results for you if you're interested.

    Rim specs....that's something I've never found on the Eagles. I've got all kinds of specs for these, rim size is not listed.
    The pictures seem sufficient though.

    P.S. If anyone has the actual steering ratio of this car, please add that here. I get a little nit picky about running cars with proper steering ratio (just a heck of a lot more fun really wheeling them around vs making them do as I say) and it's something else I've not found in any of the spec listings that I've looked through.

    Yeah Jason, I thought I liked realism too until I tried to drive the Eagle around Watkins Glen with the H pattern shifter. Not pretty.

    Call me crazy, I JUST emailed AAR themselves about this. Fingers crossed I get a response . If I get a response, I'll also ask them about the steering ratio for you Jason.

    GREAT NEWS!! The AAR representative ended up reaching the Petersen Museum where the car is displayed and I ended up getting the following information:
    "The steering wheel is 12" in diameter with a 1" thick grip giving it a 10" inside diameter.



    For a steering ratio we come up with 1 1/2 turns lock to lock."



    Hopefully that's what you wanted Jason

    Man, that's great!
    That's EXACTLY what I was wanting. Perfect, and will be implementing that change for this car.

    Thanks for taking that initiative, Marc!
