Yeah, I'll get a tripod out and shoot it. It won't be spectacular, like watching wallpaper dry , from high to superlow would take about 3 to 4 minutes I would guess. I normally ride on setting 5, so I get a faster time for the drop as I'm half way there already.

yeah you probably don't want to see the video on dropping / raising the car, it's slow and boring as hell. that's how the system works on ls coz' it only has compressors and no tank. so it's SLLLLOOOWWWW

Default Here's the video

This is a short video clip of the lowering process. Sorry no sound, I just got Adobe Premier software and don't know how to work it. Anyhow, I increased the speed to 4x so you won't go bored. The whole video is under a minute. I stopped capturing it after the big drop, the car was leveling out the other corners so it would be a minute more of nothing before this front corner drop some more.

Also, note I have my stock 17" wheels on (will put my 20"s after spring break). Because of the stock wheels, it may not look like it's really low, but trust me, it's low enough I can't drive the car.

Happy viewing.

so L being the lowest?
I can only go to 5, I thought that was the lowest under normal mode.

I should try to change it to super low mode ( or what you call it ) after work.

Here is my car being at setting 5.

When you start your car, keep your finger on the upper left hand button of the controller. After that, scroll to where you see "Mode", then using the right hand side up/down, select "Extra-Down Mode". This will now give you the full range from L,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1,0,A.B.C.D.E.F. My setting 5 seems a little bit lower than yours, wonder if it's because I had adjust the sensor rods from before

one more question Airtime,

How do you turn off the speed sensing thing? I don't want my car to go lower when I drive faster than 60. Also, when I drive over 60 now, the dash is showing "Height Hi"

So Now I am afraid to drive over 60..

I adjusted the front rod to the lowest too.

I bet with a little more time for the car to level out, BlackSC400's will tuck in. Key is patience as the controller may drop one corner first, then both back, then other corner, and finally coming back to the first. So even though you think its finished, it may still be dropping. Sure way is to go the the valve screen and see if there is activity there. Even now with my stock rims, the tires disappears into the wheel well leaving only the chrome rim visible. I imagine with my 20"s on, the rims will be tucked in about 1/2" or so. From the back, you can see the wheels butterflying.

PS: BlackSC400, you need to do the startup procedure again (press upper left on ignition) then go to the speed screen, menu through and you be able to select "NO" for speed sensing. There is a section from the owners manual that shows the "Height Hi" but my friend did not get back to me on the translation yet. Can anyone translate in the meantime?
