It's on BC ultra lows, and it doesn't have a BMW engine thus no super duper low hanging oil pan.

It's not the oil pan, but the exhaust that I wonder about. I have mine tucked up as high as they could (even after removing some of the aluminum shielding) and I still scrape over moderate speed bumps. Of course it's my resonator that scrapes.

As for the car, it's not one of the nicest I've seen but it's certainly nice.

Those are staggered probably 9" at the back and 8.5 up front. They look like 16".

I don't even use my BBS as whoever owned them before mounted 185 45 15 Toyo Proxies on them and it effectively lowers my car another inch. I'm going to get some 205/50/15 on them for next summer so they are useable.

He does bottom out... that's why he has a scrapedscrusaders sticker :rolleyes:

IIRC He's running shortened strut housings.
As for the car, its absloutely badass, SR20 will do that. The bbs's are perfect too.

Didn't see this untill now, I guess i should check in more often haha.

The car is on custom length'd BC racing coils, wheels are 16x9.5 and 16x9 with 205/40's all around. Oil pan clearance isn't an issue due to the nissan motor.

Exhaust is all custom and have custom trans mount for clearance and notched subframe etc to run 3" stainless all the way back, the only thing I scrape is "cat" due to the bulge from it. I do scrape steering rack, subframe, front frame rail, floor, rear floor, and the gas tank.

I put 25,000kms on it this year at that height :)
