So is the parachute with holes, It's not absolutely non functional, I mean it will slow you down some vs no chute but you'll still fdrom the impact of hitting the ground.


While your car may still be somewhat functional (and I also like you don't just want to hardpark it lol) I still feel like doing this is detrimental (but not my car so really doesn't affect me much tbh). I can name several reasons that slammed/stanced/hellflush is non-functional but they've all been exhaustively listed many times and I'm pretty surre you are aware of them.


Also what functional car did you pull away from in canyons? a Yaris or a Aveo?

I don't understand why so many of you are bothering posting memes and stuff here.

I mean, it's not as if he's totally ignorant to the fact that he's damaged his cars utility as a functional vehicle. I mean, the title itself informs us of this and he keeps up the theme throughout his post.

He's already pointed it out; no need for ten posts reminding him of this.


Otherwise, your pictures are nice. Who gives a damn if you're on replica wheels. While I wouldn't want to go too heavy over stock, I personally get mad when I see someone with crazy lightweight wheels on a scraping car. There's no point if it's not performance oriented. At that point, it's just about showing off the money you spent.

Enjoy your ride.


one question; What are TRD fender bezels?

@MrFisty was about to say something about lightweight wheels but then noticed the performance oriented part and was like... oh... he's right :P


Don't get me wrong, it looks ok(never been a big fan of stance) and I am aware op knows his car is less functional because of it. That being said, this is a public opinion forum and my discussion was related to his car as I was sharing my opinion

Thanks & agreed, I'll most likely end up going back to a track setup before whenever I sell the car anyways, I just get bored of the same old and like trying out different shit sometimes And it depends how much camber you are trying to get, I needed them because I wanted around -1.5 camber with 0 toe in the rear when it was as low as it is now, and the stock toe arms maxed out when the camber was at about -2.5 at that ride height. But if you're shooting for -4 I think you should be fine on stock toe arms.

Ahhh gotcha, that's a pretty perfect analogy for it actually. And I saw that one coming LOL, just the usual stockish WRX/350Z/gen coupe/etc. But thats at my local canyon that I've been driving at least once a week for about 3 years now, so it's probably not a fair comparison. The only thing that really bugs me about this height is that the dif scrapes on all the center bumps there since they're unusually tall - most likely how I blew off the fucking drain plug Going to take it up to GMR soon and see how it does...

Thank you for that, and agreed about the wheels - especially when people run $50 tires on their $3,000 wheels...

I don't know if I'm calling it the right name, but the little fins that I have in place of the stock chrome strip (or 86 piston logo on the frs) that are in front of the mirrors on the top rear-most part of the front fenders.

edit: here they are - http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/221677687528
Think I got em for like $40 used, they're always on local FRS buy/sell facebook groups. The real TRD ones are like $200 something but come paint matched IIRC

@manualmotive Ah, that's a fender garnish, I believe!

I only asked because I thought there was some cool TRD part i didn't know about and I got pumped.
