^ AFAIK just one old G-series Porsche (arguably expensive), one Mustang Shelby (previous generation), a Triumph Bobber, one Subaru, their race car, drift car and two SUVs (an old Toyota Sequoia and a Range Rover).

This is really fucking smart!

https://www.autosport.com/sup/news/142214/penske-says-it-was-asked-to-change-its-exhaust

Quote
There have been claims that the system on the car is purposely heavy to help lower the centre of gravity of the car, without having to rely entirely on the mandated, sealed ballast system to reach the 1395 kilogram minimum weight limit.

According to a team spokesperson, there had been a system fitted to the car that was heavier than required - however it was removed following the Adelaide 500 at the request of Supercars.

Sometimes the best engineering solution is to use something 'worse'! Who would have thought that having a heavier exhaust would actually translate into a performance advantage.

Quote
There is currently no rule regarding centre of gravity in the category, which means even with the heavier exhaust, the Penske Mustangs technically aren't illegal.

...

Scott McLaughlin is currently unbeaten in the Penske Mustang, having won all four races of the 2019 season so far.

any thoughts on those wheel spacers (with studs) or wheel spacer/adapters?

context:
the ford focus is 5X108 and runs on a relatively high offset so the wheels are inside the wheel well.

option 1: cheapest route is to just get wheel spacers with studs to push the wheels out. 
option 2: get those adapters that convert from 5X108 to 5X114 to get 5X114 wheels.  would like to stay at 16" and just get a set of rallye-looking wheels so i can keep the existing tires.

AFAIK they should be alright, so long as you don't get too aggressive with the spacer thickness.

the thinnest i saw on FB marketplace so far is a 15mm adapter that turns 5X108 to 5X114.  so if i get a +45 wheel, i'm basically ending up with a +30 setup in the end.
