      I plan in going lower. I just have to take the time out to see how low I can go before I hit the coils.

      8.5 square isn't bad. Atleast you wouldn't have fitment issues. I hated having 9.5 in the front.

      yea 8.5 in the front is great but something wider in the rear is always nice for more stretch

      Yeah. It wouldn't kill me if I never lowered it more. I kinda just don't like how I'm restricted to what the wheels will allow.

      Hah, you should have seen the display car he had at WF. He started up the antilag for me and exhaust ended up split right behind the resonator. But i think it was just the flange. Made my ears ring.

      I can't tell if you are being sarcastic or not.

      Let me just say there's a local meet in my area that my buddies went to. They got the vibe that it was set up to scope out what people have to steal. Needless to say we haven't been back.

      Let me just say there's a local meet in my area that my buddies went to. They got the vibe that it was set up to scope out what people have to steal. Needless to say we haven't been back.
      Damn I only that was in VA.. That is what happens at the ECHM (East Coast Honda Meet) They find out about your car then get what they can, sometimes at the meet itself. Got to love local forums for a reason I guess.
