      I love how I can hit a speed hump head-on at speed.

      I hate having to slow down for dumbasses like you to crab walk over a McDonald's straw.

      Enjoy your broken car

      Nice Miata, I love it. Did you get a skidplate for it? A skidplate makes super slammed cars surprisingly daily-able. I had one on my S13 that I DD'd for 4 years, and despite being low enough to collect Bots Dots and road surface reflectors with it, I never had any problems with breaking anything. Nice Work!

      Thanks man. I raised the motor and installed frame rail guards. If i added a skit plate it might scrape too much. My main concern was oil pan and frame rails because those were the lowest. and slammed s13

      ^^Nice S13! Really like the color. You have any front shots?

      I give people that drive low ass cars like that props, but man it must be such an inconvenience.

      I have to deploy ramps to get the Prelude out of my driveway

      Ugh, you ruined a two-tone coupe with that hellastupid crap.

      Gotta love that this stupid kiddie fad has gone so far as adding weight (skidplates) and raising the center of gravity (raising the engine).

      Why don't you people stick to Volkswagens? At least they're crappy cars to begin with.

      Its not a skidplate. Its a "skit" plate. And its hilarious that he raised the motor. But, thats not that surprising based on the M3 he posted which was so low it was ruined.



      Oh, and does your rear window have an "acquire bitches" sticker on it? Do your parents make you park around back because theyre ashamed of that thing in that nice neighborhood?

      This one made me laugh. I think there are easier and cheaper ways to accomplish this.

      Do you ever pull in somewhere or end up on a road with a speed bump or pot holes and cars behind you? Seems like a huge pain in the a**.

      i never got the idea of "slamming" your car when you live in the northeast. if you drive the roads i drive.....it's a waste of time and $.

      unless of course, you enjoy adjusting your suspension to look fly then re-adjust to BE functional. Each to their own.

      Do people need to make comments like this to make themselves feel better about someone else's car, time, money, and effort

      It's not "to each their own" with backhanded comments like this.

      Is it a sign that you are old and over the whole slammed-to-scraping scene when all you think while watching that video is "damn, that's a lot of interlocking brick to weed"?

      You know whats more annoying than seeing these stupid kinds of cars in person? Is the way people with said stupid cars feel the need to post pictures and videos of them everywhere. Then when people say they do not like them, the call everyone "haters" or pretend to like the negative attention.

      Just spray and walk away.


      Or just have this kid do some chores, is that not what children are for? Your personal slave for ~18 years, if not longer now from what I have heard.
