Ive been asked that by everyone thats seen it...

its real simple and intuitive...there are just "spots" that my heels rest on when its time to shift and brake...upshifts are just reaching your foot under and lifting up from the hip...it actually works well.

Yeah, I kept looking and found the 83 spectre wheel was disc...but it still wasnt a direct fit.

The rotor needed flipped over (one side is dished) and the spacer which is part of the brake caliper bracket needed pressed out and flipped over. Cool thing is I think I gained a 1bout 1/4" clearance for a larger tire on the shaft side

Might want to change your sig line to read ZN700 instead of VN700. I though Spectre might be a closer fit.
