Hey John,
Skyline ? thats the first time someone compared my car to a Skyline...hehe

No i can't lower it more...It's all the way lowered.If I get shorter shocks it will help out just a lil more.

Getting shorter shocks pistons won't lower the car unless you're already at the bump stops, which you're not. They may help keeping you from bottoming out, but you could simple solve that with better matched valving to your springs.

Is it also true that some shorter shocks also has the spring seat located lower than normal. I think I remember reading at H&R, that this was how they achieve the stock ride comfort with the lowered ride look with the H&R Cup Kit.

Nice choice of rims BTW.

looks great rob!
you should take some pictures somewhere with a scenic view, or on some grass to really show off the new look =)

i dont think you should lower the car anymore than it is. It's pretty darn low as is, especially in the front. I'm surprised you havent scraped the front fascia already! I had that problem in some other cars i attached from lip spoilers to.

i think your next move should be the ///M stripes on the car either on the front or the rear corner of the car

do you have a rollcage yet? i havent really looked inside your car closely before. that might be interesting to do next as well.

here os what i think.
Those rims looked better on M3ntal Kev's car, and Rob's Hartge looked better on his car.
Also I think Kev's old rims(Rob's now) looks better than his new OZ. But the best looking rims for Kev were Contour(7 series) Those look aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamazing.


BUt that's just me.

get the stripes at the rear...it'll look sick but take the dekra sticker off..it'll look gay with all these diff colours...black, red, white, blue etc...rollcage will look amazingly go for it man.

ps...dont think about powder coating it white!! it'll look amazingly gay! (dont go nuts on me...its only a suggestion)

No I bought these rims already.
I Don't think I will put anymore decals on.Maybe when I get enough money,I will start to lok for an Original DTM racecar and sell my car.Until that day comes (if it comes) I will just stick with the Dekra sticker.

I wonder how durable those superleggra's would be for street and track use (mainly street).
