I don't see the point of going that low with a street car without having airbags. You won't be able to drive anywhere without scraping, but hey, not my car.

Rochester is pretty damn flat. And I don't think Franklyn cares one bit when he drags frame

Btw, I've gotta come by soon to put my winters on and raise the car.

Franklyn knows the roads around Rochester better than anybody else I would argue. He knows every dip, bump, expansion joint there is.

All I know is every time the Audi scraped I cringed, even bumps where I anticipated scrapeage and it didn't I still tightened up and braced for it. That sound just feels like it's destroying your car and I can't stand it.




But, it does look good dude. I just wouldn't be able to drive it like that anywhere, and it makes it look slower.

You're either very dumb, or very ballsy.

Perhaps both. Well done, looks great.


Oh and your tires are not nearly stretched enough.



Oh (#2), how do you get a jack under your car?
