Big day today, installed a vertex front lip along with cs style rockers and pods. They seem to add to the aggressive look of the car. I love it!! 👌👌

So after getting my new custom plates I decided to post a picture of the car on Mighty Car Mods Facebook page (if you're familiar with the show you'll get the joke) they responded by making her famous

It definitely won't drive like a race car, but its not so bad. The best way to minimize scrub is set max camber in the front (lowering will obviously add camber to the rear. The fronts wont scrub much at all with the height set at around one finger between tyre and wheel arch, although when it does scrub it has the potential to do what it did in my case and rip the entire fender liner away

The rears scrub only during very hard cornering and when hitting big bumps on the road. I have found though that they dont scrub as much now as they did before. Mainly because theres a plastic clip on the inside rear of the fender which the tyre slowly eats away until it doesnt touch anymore the downside is its one of the clips that holds your bumper on lol but don't worry its still pretty tight. I also rolled my rear fenders about 5mm to add a little more room. But be casreful if youre gonna do this because rolling too far can form dents in the panel around the fender. I have a one finger gap in the rear as well, raising the car to two fingers will stop the scrubbing but wthout adjustable rear end the lack of neg camber causes the wheels to poke way to much and look really silly.

An adjustable rear end is next on my upgrade list along with bagging the car and fitting wrx hubs to fit a set of 18x10 Enkei RS05RR's

Yaiks thats alot of info right there! Thank you for taking your time. Right now I am not planning to drive it like a race car. Maybe in the future.

So I am about to pull the trigger on the coilover first, did you have a custom spring rates for your coilovers?

I would love to see your car on bags😁

All good man happy to help

I didn't get custom spring rates but a higher rate in the rear might've been a good thing

So after months of scrubbing, scraping, lens popping and fender bending I decided to throw out the old coilovers and get some fresh air

I went with airlift because it looked like the most comprehensive kit out there plus it has all the features I need. The kit went in fairly well with the only issue being a loud clunking noise in the rear every time I hit a bump. Havent figured it out yet but the main suspect is the pillow-ball joints. Other than that the system runs fairly well. Takes some messing around to get the ride quality half decent and it plays havoc with the traction control but other than that its ok

If you can't even see a cop, think of all the other things you can't see.

Take it to the track.

Ummmm ... 144km/h is 89 mp/h, which is close enough to 100 mph to do PLENTY of damage.. deadly damage... to innocent people who had no say in the matter. Obviously, due to the presence of law enforcement, the OP was obviously NOT traveling at speeds that are the norm for a freeway. Point definitely NOT granted. Race on a racetrack. Drive on public roads as if your FIRST responsibility is to guarantee the safety of those around you. That's the way grownups drive. If you're not a grown up yet, then don't drive in public.

Sorry.. but that's the way I feel about it. Lost too many people in my life to stupid drivers (one is too many).

Grow up.... both the OP and those defending reckless driving. AND, to those of you who may respond w/ comments along the lines of, "I practice, and I'm skilled at those speeds, so I'm not being reckless; speeds limits are stupid and are for people w/out real driving skills" or similar arguments... we've heard'em all before.... you're missing the point.

Driving in public is a GROUP effort, not unlike a musician playing in an ensemble. EVERYONE needs to be at rehearsal, trying to play their parts together and helping each other. Occasionally an immature musician (at any age) will feel it's OK to miss a rehearsal because "they know their part and can play it," but they're dead wrong because other folks in the group interact WITH that part, and the part needs to be there no matter what. On public roads, you INTERACT with other drivers; you're playing a PART. If you drive like an idiot, you are ruining the chance for safety and a long life for the others around you, and that is about as unfair and unkind choice as you can possibly make. Stop it.

Said with love,

Barry
