[QUOTE=RaynArt;4539118][URL=

still stuff to do as usual but just as it sits for now[/QUOTE]

how the hell do you drive that thing in the winter? I just got an SC and I can't even go over speed bumps in the allys without something under it hitting em. And I have stock setup!

no that's not it. It's the first post you made in this thread. Bit damn, is that really your car? And you drive it year round? How? I have blizaks and hope that'll do the job. Is it feasible to drop it and still drive it in the winter?

looks good btw. Real good

thanks, much appreciated.

yea its my car lol. in winter i go back to stock wheels with all seasons and remove the sideskirts. bumper stays on, otherwise thats about it. i don't ever change ride height.

to me personally yes its fine to drop the car and drive in winter. i've driven on this height for 4-5 winters now. i wish i had blizzaks but no $ lol. just drive carefully and thats about it.

you should go to this check out our sc's and show yours

yes you can drive lowered. I had 3" of ground clearance with my GS last winter but I did have snow tires also. Really you just have to watch for Chicago pot holes.

Rayn I have a set of 16" rims with snow tires on them Let me know if your interested.

Alright, ill try to come out and check out that meet, show off my stock beater haha.

But that's awesome to know. My cousin has an incrdible galant and said he wouldnt lower his SC cause he cant drive his G anywhere cause its so low. But When I get some G35C wheels soon I imagine there's gonna be mondo wheel gap. So hopefully I can pull off some tanabe or Tein springs to fix that.

Thanks for the info. Hopefully I'll see ya guys this weekend. Look for a white SC400 with 0 mods lol.

Here's my hobby history
It all started from here and yes I was a ricer.

I got sick of all show and I wanted to go fast so I started another project and this is what happened after 2 months of owing it. Put me and really bad shape. I was not able to walk for 3 months w/o cructhes.

After 3months of therapy I wasn't comfortable driving a manual car so I got this.

After awhile I wanted an EVO again so I got this.

And this.

I ran into some $$$ issue and sold the EVO and the motorcycle. But I needed a DD so got this.

The eclipse became a garage queen and I wanted a new project and got these.


After a year of owing the G35 I traded it for something fun.

The s2k is my new project and I wanted a nice daily and got this.
