    Pag nahihilo kana sa sobrang tagtag when driving your car then it is too low.

    never had any problems with mine.. ang auto ko dropped ng 3 inches in the back and front i never had any problems with handling, actually it handles better cause its low to the ground and i have 19 inch rims 245-35 kumho ventus.. it handles like an f-1 racer kasi ang baba talaga... but walan g pwedeng sumakay sa likod............sasayad ako pag me dip yung kalsada.. yung lang ang downside ko.....and it also depends on what kind of suspension you have in your car...

    it depends too if your racing car that's too heavy............and packing a lot of system in his car.. but most of the time its on the driver too.... if he's too careful to shift then he can lose but if he's a gunslinger and doesn't really care well that's another story..........

    ^the guy lives in the philippines. much rougher roads, more road hazards (like the aforementioned super-tall speed bumps)...it's very different from the flat, smooth, well-maintained highways of Houston.

    also a slammed (3+ inches lowering) car on 19's actually handles/performs worse...although it probably feels better because of the stiffer rating/valving of the springs and shocks.

    also, a word on hydraulics - these things will completely ruin the frame of your car in time. the guys in the show cars don't care, but i guarantee your daily driven, primary car will handle/ride terribly and not last as long as you want it to if you install hydraulics.

    The car is lowered properly using a kit that includes lowering springs and shocks so handling should be improved. I'm wondering if ground clearance will be an issue since the chin spoiler has around 6.5" of clearance. I realize this isn't really "slammed" but I'm also wondering about the "sayad" likelihood. The car is only about to see the road as it is still in the shop....just wondering aloud.....

    And he was really trying, too. Revved the nuts off his engine... nearly had me in first gear... then I passed him like he was standing still.

    See, he was lowered so bad that he was just three or four inches off the ground. He had to slow down to zero km/h for a very slight (as in, six inches high, slope of just 20-25 degrees) hump. I just drove over it at full speed.
    my dad's A/T ford lynx battled against a lowered 3-door hatchback honda civic. napahiya ung civic sa hump.

    lowered ride height does not always lead to a harsh ride... some springs offer a lower stance without compromising the comfort level of the stock suspension. It all depends on the spring rate.

    sayang pera...

    again, a properly lowered suspension would be able to maintain the stock compression rate and spring rate. Progressive coil lowering springs are capable of maintaining a smooth ride and the amount of compression if paired with the right damper/shock.

    6.5" is okay... but you might still have to zigzag over some humps.

    Heck, yung stock Jazz 1.5 sumasayad sa mga ibang humps... grrrr....

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...
