Gen2 W126 onto W116
I've been reading up on the W126 swap onto our W116 and I'm very interested. This is a racecar so brakes are quite important.

My main thoughts are about the offset of the wheels after the brake swap. Right now we use CLK320 lightweights which fit surprisingly well on the stock hubs. It looks like the W126 hubs will push the wheels out further correct? In that case I will need to do the rears as well to keep the offset even yes?
