      Alright, looking through the other model's threads, they all have successful stance threads that are awesome to look at (MK3's is 180 pages, MK2's is over 60, and the MK4 forum has had several go over 100 pages).

      1. MK5s ONLY
      2. DO NOT quote full images
      3. You are entitled to your opinion. BUT. do not argue
      4. Constructive criticism is allowed but don't let it get out of hand.

      Moderators, please give this thread a chance. I know we have tried it before, but in the spirit of the holidays, let there be stance.

      If these rules can be followed by everyone, it can stay. The moment people start declaring what is and isn't "stance" is the moment this thread gets locked.

      Quote, originally posted by StanceWorks »
      I’d like to think I’m a student of Stance. I capitalize Stance on purpose; for the same reason Catholic’s capitalize God. Some of you may be aware that I’m an engineer. I work with numbers, criteria, mechanical envelopes, and constraints all day long. Most of the things in the engineering world come about from equations, safety factors, or other design criteria that must be adhered to. As a good student of Stance, I look at cars quite a bit on the internet. Clicking on links of links. Getting lost in a sea of still images, each one showing a different definition of what Stance might be, or how someone else perceives it. Part of me has always thought that there must be some sort of equation that provides a basis for proper Stance. Here I make an attempt to define the variables and relationship between those variables that blend together to make a well balanced Stance.

      Variables:

      Gap — A measure of distance between wheel lip or tire to fender. Although weighted differently than low, the lack of fender gap creates an aggressive look and the feeling of danger due to the potential for damage (see Damage further down). {G1} refers to gap between the front wheel/tire and front fender. {G2} refers to gap between the rear wheel/tire and rear fender. {G1}{G2}

      Wheelbase — The distance between the wheels of the automobile in question. {Wb}

      Muffler — How much space there is between the ground and muffler can. Busted mufflers that dangle and move need not apply. {M}

      Oilpan — Common place where low is measured. Usually at the front of an automobile, this Low measurement marks the begining of the Low Function. {Op}

      Rake — The slope (rise over run) of the bottom of the automobile were Low is measured.

      Exhaust — Another common place where low is measured. Exhaust usually extends back from Oilpan and is measured in inches. {E}

      Low — The measurment of clearance from any portion of the automobile to the surface on which it rolls. Of course Stance is not acheiveable without low. In all forms of Stance, low is a requirement. Low can be expressed as a function of previously defined variables.

      Wheel — A rolling appartus that the tire mounts to, providing increased style and personality to the automobile in question. Wheels can create Stance in one of many ways. Customization, rarity, size, uniqueness, marque mismatch. {w}

      Poke — The extension of the wheel lip even with, or past the fender line. Poke can be achieved with spacers or, in the case of modular wheels, wider outers. Poke can be excessive, depending on other variable measurments poke can detract from Stance. {P}

      Stretch — The use of a tire that is more narrow than the wheel. In order to mount these tires one must “stretch” them beyond their normal design constraints. {Sr}

      Damage — The lack of damage is not a penalty when talking about Stance, but damage as a direct result of Stance is seen as a form of Stance in itself. Like the enherinet hangover associated with drinking too much, damage seems to be an acceptable side effect of Stance. Like a hangover, damage hurts at first, but is then worn as a badge of honor. Fender damage from the effects of Gap, or mechanical failure of oilpans as a function of Low, and damage in the vain of Style are all acceptable forms of damage. {D}

      Tuck — When Gap becomes a negative number. Used only in reference to wheel lip. {T}

      Style — The most subjective of all variables. Style refers to the ability of the automobile owner to create Stance through the use of unique materials, vision, and unique combinations. Style could be best described as the artform of Stance. {Sy}

      Visual Aids for Variables:

      Damage:

      Gap:

      Exhaust:

      Wheel:

      Tuck/Low:

      Stretch:

      Poke:

      Constants:

      Daylight — The presence of photons (in a wave or particle form) emitted from the sun. {Dl}

      Relations:

      Working on relating all the variables to eachother is essentially the process of Stance. Some relations have already been defined through the explanation of the variables. Rules per say. Taking all these variables and making an overlying Stance equation is a daunting task. Taking the variables and defining which of them are multipliers, which can or can not be present in the event of the other’s existance, and making sure that weights are adequitely placed on those which make the largest Stance impact all become an excersize. As a student of Stance I have scoured the internet looking for the most prevalent, prolific, and popular examples of Stance. Using these examples the Stance equation / formula was born.

      Nothing special Fk power-techs 10 threads up front no helpers and 0 threads in the rear. On the omyants 13mm spacers in the rear and 5 in the front. Same spec's on the classix's but with 8mm in the front.
