      It looks like a very diverse group of pasty skinned crackers having fun.

      But whatever... the video was good.

      I just can't praise ANY gathering/group that condones this bull****.



      That poor BMW.

      With all the stupid camber in the video- and you mention rain- did anybody crash in the rain?
      Somebody might have tried to stupidly take a corner at like 15 mph....
      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Not hate, just my opinion.
      It's not like that will deter any of this anyway.

      in b4 stanceworks fanb0is come in posting the video of that bm being "tracked" and how it proves that ultralowcars are exactly like racecars that low and therefore do amazingly at the track.

      (i have no problem that appearance wise, i like many ultra low and bagged cars, but hate much of the "scene" bs)

      and the red supra in the vid was being hooned by the idiotic owner in the damp conditions, and crashed and destroyed alot of property, which of course damages the already tarnished reputation of this event and proves that many of it's attendees are idiots.

      A lot of folks are running extremely wide wheels for their application and the correct size tire for that wheel would rub and scrape. Plus narrower tires are cheaper. I don't like the look either, but that is what some people prefer.

      Since the constant focusing wasn't intentional not going to say anything about. I Thought the video was fine along with music choice. I do wish there was more cruising action or some engine sounds from the cars.

      Not having autofocus really isn't an excuse for that annoying in and out of focus. That was seriously tiring to watch. Set the focus, then hit record, there is no need to constantly be changing the focus.
      3 + 3 + 3 = NEIN!

      Technique could be improved. Got some great shots, and some great footage though. **** the haters man, besides I see half them drive cavaliers

      The focusing thing really bothered me, but it wasnt on purpose so I dont mind as much. Not a fan of that kind of car scene, but the footage looked cool from what I saw before i stopped watching.

      Oh ****, the buffet just let out and the old men are flocking to the thread. It's an H20 video, you know damn well what's going to be in it. Wahhh, camber. Boo hoo tires. Shut up.

      I'll say that the focus thing did bother me a bit, hurt my eyes trying to follow the focus points, but I understand you're learning the new rig and I never hate on someone who gives us free videos of cars to watch.

      Keep doin'.

      I am not old, nor do I know or care what an H20 event is. What I do know is those cars look broken and those tires are too small for the rims. I don't know much about this camber thing, perhaps you could be a pal and show me some reason why it's "good"

      Oh, and OP, in my first reply I chastised the focus thing. Obviously that's stating the obvious. I do like the video otherwise, the grim weather is actually a nice backdrop. Perhaps some more engine revving and "cambering" (is that what those funny looking cars do?) in the next video?

      Because a certain group of people like it?

      I'm not a fan, but there are also people who aren't a fan of what I do to my cars...so? Good is relative.

      Lets not turn this thread into a war on that portion of car culture, please.

      I'm really curious, I'm very "open minded automotively" Maybe I'm a tad ignorant for not knowing what this is about, like is it just for looks, does it have a purpose? I can appreciate that it must not be easy to make happen, I'm just curious why.

      Perhaps this question belongs in the the stupid car question thread

      This argument holds no water considering what the cost of a set of fancy wheels and a modified suspension costs.

      The replies here remind me of YouTube comments. You could make the most artistic and "Tony Scott'd" at the same time level of production and someone always chimes in that some element of the end product is totally subpar - with the implication that said commentator wouldn't ever do that.

      Check commentators account - no uploads other than stuff from TV and pen0r jokes.

      Edit: if your "hater" or "being a hater" takes the form of calling something in the video stupid/dumb/whatever - use real words, properly, you mouth breathing keyboard warriors, lest ye come off as a hypocrite.

      Sure, I watched some of your other videos on vimeo. I think you are just making excuses.

      thanks guys (and girls) i appreciate the constructive criticism. Trust me my work from here on out will be a lot smoother. I like posting in here because I can get a different perspective from people outside of the "stance scene/mk4 forum kids."

      try shooting with a 135 prime at f/2, and a 50mm 1.4. its tough if its your first time,like ive said like 20 times now.

      to everyone, i understand this event isnt to everyones liking and not everybody loves this style. I myself have a bagged 20th and love it. Its not a performance or track car nor was it made to be. There are cars that can and can't be. i dont hate people that would rather track their cars and have them being functional and not low as hell. I just tried to showcase the best shots with teh best cars, there were plenty of "track" prepped cars that were super nice too. I cant appeal to everyone, this event isn't for everyone, but it was very fun.

      The apostrophe signifies a missing letter. Keep doing what he's doing. He got it, you didn't have to.

      It's the same thing that's been happening since car customization began. Did Barris make his vehicles more functional with bubble tops and crazy body modifications? Were lead sleds easier to see out of with chopped roofs, or easier to drive sitting on the ground? Are blown V8, 600hp T-buckets with 3 inch wide front tires and 16 inch wide rears any less dangerous than some stretched tires? Did anyone make a difference playing it safe?

      Good is totally objective. This new "stance" movement may not be to everyone's taste, and I can see why, but you can draw a parallel to many of the popular trends that have existed since people started tearing into their cars to make them their own.

      Some people will complain that the scene isn't the same as it used to be, but there is a lot of really awesome work being done to modern cars. Everything's fine.

      People often do this to represent a different dialect, or way of saying a word, which is what I did. Doin' sounds different than doing. I'm not on TCL trying to save time with rogue punctuation.

      Seems silly to spend several posts on a single apostrophe. That's quite a few more keystrokes.
