So... Guys...

How much should I drop my car for the winter..
I'm at stock height right now.. The lows allow me 1.7-3 inches of drop.. front and rear..
how low?

Get studded rear tires, slam it to the ground, put the Home Depot lip on and just be a freakin' snow plow man.

Some guy filed an unauthorized payment, which is BS, and paypal is (been) gathering evidence...

I have a outstanding balance owed and I cant send or recieve money...and it's been forever and a half...and they're still not done...


Edit: and to make things WORSE! Check what I just read:

Mein Auto: big turbo hellrot sedan
damn randy im sorrry to hear that


In other bad news... I just ripped 4 inches of my bumper lip off...


I was on my way to school (crazy downpour)

im turning on a tight left to make school and im fairly late so i was on it a little.... LO AND BEHOLD A GIGANTIC PUDDLE hit the puddle with my left front tire the car pulls that way and becaus ei have no lsd my right wheel lost traction and was spinning... I lef toff the throttle but it was too late...

car fishtails towards the left.. and i realize that its too much angle for me to catch it ... so its either the ditch to my left or the curb to my right...


I picked the right... car went from about 30 degrees left to 45 right and is super close to the curb ...

I reverse out and drive to the parking lot...

get to the parking lot and i get out the car and see the corner light hanging off the car and a shizzload of dirt in my front bumper along with my lip almost ripped off...

also where the bumper meets the nosepanel got scratched and bent to sh!t..

thank goodness im ok and nobody hit me...

i'm just happy that I didnt rape any suspension components or something of the sort..

I know I fucced up tho

If you need one it's yours for $15. I can send u a pic when I get off work.
Sweet deal! i'd love it. send me a message on how you want the funds and sent to where. It's getting colder here now so it's not such a big deal, but it would be nice to at least get the belt on there so i can find out if there's anything else wrong with the AC
