Hi Guys and Girls

On my Spec 2 R33 GTST I have a TS front bumper and a Trial rear bumper....

I am thinking of doing some track days etc etc, but when I fitted my kit I had to take the Tow points off.....

Does anyone sell some aftermarket extended tow points or is there something else I can do incase I break down and need to be towed back.....

What has everyone else done and can you post some pictures please.

the TRS tow straps need to be longer for the front mounting to fit properly as the mounting point to the chassis rail is along way from the front of the car and the alloy rear tow rings need to have the oe tow eye lowered and extended so you can fit it, otherwise you can only get one bolt to fit and it's crooked and to high and looks like poop
not that I have both here and tried both lol

Hi
I can get the TRS straps in bud but the Standard length are too short for our cars as the best place to bolt them too is about 10 inches from the front of the bumper,
As for the the alloy anodised tow rings I bought one to fit too ours but again our cars are abit strange on the oe tow points on the back which the ring bolts too,
so it needs extending downwards and lengthening and straightening to be able to bolt it too,
you could just bolt a Strap to the back but it looks odd :)
Cheers

i just said they don't fit! correctly
if you bolt them to the front panel instead of the chassis leg the first time it's towed your rad intercooler and front end will be gone!!

longer is good

I will be looking to stock the tow straps and they will be longer :)
Let me know when you get the longer adjuatable ones in stock and if I am not sorted by then I wil have a pair, as bruv is looking to get one as well, so may buy 3 ...

thanks for info, not sure I read your response correctly the first time.... :sorry:

will pay more attention next time...
