Brakes are unbelievably powerful. Yeah, the stopping distance is probably negatively affected. It's still not undriveable, and no more unsafe than the sub-optimal handling and reduced contact patches stanced cars have.
if they outlaw these cars then what next? properly done they are no more unsafe than anything else modded and put on the street. to each their own, you people with crap to say about something else likes suck at life. its their car, if they want to raise it let them do so on their own dollar, blood, sweat and tears. whether its raised cars or trucks its none of your business as long as they arent causing problems.

You have to be an absolute idiot to argue that the percentage of "stanced" cars with upgraded suspension and braking components does not dwarf the percentage of "donks" that are equally equipped. Whether it be a massive 8-piston big brake kit or a set of upgraded pads and rotors, top of the line coilover system or a simple sport spring and shock combo, these upgrades are at the top of almost every "stanced" owners list of modifications.
The same thing just cannot be said about these donks. How many times have you seen a 15" big brake kit peeking through the spokes of some 28 inch rims as they roll by? Or how about a lift kit specifically designed to fit their 20+ year old model vehicle so they can fit those gigantic wheels properly and still handle appropriately? Maybe I just missed it in every single picture I've ever seen and every donk I've had the pleasure of witnessing in person. Yet you would be hard pressed to pick up any decent car magazine on the rack featuring a stanced car that isn't sporting an upgraded braking system along with upgraded suspension components that are more than capable of handling the car safely.
Wait a minute, that's potentially 5-10 thousand dollars wasted on improved braking and handling. Maybe we should reference the top of the donk list of priority upgrades and find we could better use that money to chrome our entire undercarriage or get that classy multi-color paint job with the massive skittles candy logo graphic.
Give it a rest there is no comparison.
Ever read the articles about Newport claiming the FDA proposed ban on menthol cigarettes was "racist?" The deck is stacked with race cards these days, and everyone is playing them.
Let's say for argument's sake that 90% of the DONKs in Cincinnati were filled with criminals and stolen property. It makes sense to pull them all over, and weed out the innocent 10%. While true, you still can't declare war on one type of vehicle unless you are fair about it.
Headlight height is one way to do it. Tires poking out of wheelwells is maybe another? Look at it on paper and pass some reasonable vehicle requirements, and be prepared to go after other cars that violate them. Don't just use it as an excuse to pull over and search a DONK. If you are going to impound a dirty DONK, then you need to impound everything that violates what ever rules they come up with.
Don't truck registrations keep brodozers and others (like that F-650) on the roads in some states?
Sad. I can understand not wanting donks around for safety reasons but they should have warned the community and worked with the community about solving the problem rather than just impounding vehicles. And this just stinks of modern day racism hiding behind the veil of road safety.
signatures are annoying, right?
how did this turn into another ****ing Stance discussion!?
