i live in PA, high traffic and road work doesnt happen. when it does, its only to fill in holes. which in turn makes that spot a lump rather then a hole, so its just as much of a dangerzone

I stopped because these roads are retarded and didn't want to blow the m50 pan.

^lies. cars at stock height will be faster than a slammed car. you dont have to constantly look for dips in the road and steer around them, you just plant foot and go. not to mention a stock rideheight or slightly lowered car has far less wear and tear on bushings, tyres, axels etc than a slammed car. if i ever wanted to go that low, id be on bags

didnt think you were that stupid. a slammed car is just as fast as a raised car. you shouldnt be ignorantly racing around city streets with bad road work no matter what car your in. on the track where it matters, a slammed car on proper suspension will outperform a stock suspension car .. if that was wrong you'd see race cars a foot off the ground racing around.

99% of the time, bags are for bitches. if you want to be low, BE LOW. dont drive around higher then stock then spread your car all over the internet parked low. M. Burroughs e28 is the biggest example of this.

just because i did it doesnt make it any less ignorant. and that guy was lying, he lives 4 houses away from the turn at the end of the road, i could only have been doing 60-70 at that point. i dont ever plan on flying 80 into a 130 degree turn on a crazy hill.

i thought we were talking about in towns/cities, seeing as both yours and ansteads cars have never seen a racetrack as far as i know.

pretty sure you were looking at getting onto bags at one stage?
