That's just dumb, doesn't look good nor has any performance benefits.

Didn't you learn when your front lip literally exploded?

Why do you need to be so critical? It's not your car. Maybe this kid just wants to car as low as it can go, and isn't concerned with handling.

people are so quick to jump to conclusions... a properly adjusted coilover will handle relatively the same no matter the height.. if anything the lower it is set, the better it will handle because of the lower center of gravity...

if it's not rubbing like crazy how can the handling be negatively impacted?


anyways heres a few more

Someone que "Low Rider"! quick!

Looks cool. Too low for me, 'specially with the potholes and curb-angles in this city, but it LOOKS sweet.

When you move the spring perch to lower the car, you're basically turning into the damper, thus limiting travel and bottoming out more often.

Bottoming out is extremely bad for a car's handling, the car weight's is suddenly held by the chassis itself and weight balance is uterly fucked. Just don't start taking corners at 100mph on the street, thinking you have a gokart, we don't want another 18 year old wrapped around a pole.

Makes for a great show car, but you've shown with your videos you're not into this really, and with all these scratches well, forget it

These were facts, now to my opinion: "Did you blow your dampers bro?!"

That's what it looks like..and what everybody else is thinking too.
