Why is everybody doing air?
Anybody need help with air shit hit me up!
Also, I don't want to sound like a complete hypocrite, because bagging the wagon is something I've often considered. Money aside, being static serves as self gratification for me. I like showing my car how I actually drive it, and not having the lowest car at a show by the flick of a switch. Air is definitely cool and all, but it was way more appealing to me before it was a trend.
Gonna start my thread in the members gallery but had a nice photoshoot from a photographer yesterday. Hit him up on facebook @ NL Projects
Here's two though
Can't drive you car hard? Sucks to suck, set it up right.Instructions for The Life of Low: avoid, swerve, angle, diagonal, rub, scrape, slow, live it, learn it, love it.
lolol perfect road land. we for sure discussed this the other night after throwing sparks down I-5. But Jay worded that perfectly. Bags is something i have been back and forth on for a while.. But i also often think that for the price of some kits i could be spending that money on a ton of other really cool shit for my car as well.
Have u guys seen shavi drive his car, and/or what he goes through? wekfest la or infamous as an example @ the queen mary location (on grass) ... It takes 2 people to hold up his bumper as he drives it ... so his front bumper doesn't dig into the grass and rip off his bumper ... while its awesome as hell, its also impractical as hell
Myself as an example now ... wekfest sf ... you guys saw how low I drove the wagon all 9 hrs up from sd to the bay ... I looked "hard" doin it ... but inside the drivers seat im stressed because at anytime I can break yet another expensive jdm car part ($1500+ varis diffuser, $1000+ varis cf skirts, and one day perhaps a $1400+ varis front bumper asking to be destroyed driving at this ride height). Since then, the wagon has been raised up 1 inch because the rear of the varis skirt sits dangerously low to the ground ... its already cracked on both sides from said sf trip =/
Should I raise up the wagon to a safer ride height like joe's shagon wagon? No ... I don't wanna ride that high, that's not my style. Do I wanna go back down an inch .... hell yes ... but not w/ all this expensive varis aero. MY solution = go air (my solution may not fit everyones needs, style, or budget, so obviously you just do you .... and imma do me)
Everyone will do as they please at the end of the day ... I respect guys like joe w/ his conservative ride height. I respect guys like shavi and abbitt who dumped their shit to the ground while remaining static. I simply am sick of the stress and thought breaking more expensive lips/skirts/diffusers/etc, and not being able to access certain places due to my ride height

one thing i love about air is when someone parks, and tucks their fender right between tire and the lip of their wheels ... i would def not attempt that sort of wheel fitment on a static setup and ruin expensive volk re30's or work vs-xx's. if i ever felt the need to tuck rim instead ... it would be easy to change my setup. if i wanted to go on a random road trip to vegas or sf ... it would take me a few seconds to raise the car, whereas w/ coilovers it would take me much longer
-keep his fenders in good shape
-drive into certain places
-ride comfortably (mentally speaking as well)
-ill think of some more when i get some sleep in my system ...
i know how you felt on your sf trip now dennis. i was worried about my rear diffuser too. even though i would rub my tires occasionally, i was more worried about that rear end lol
and ill admit it, i love seeing people's wow face after telling them i drove 1500 miles for infamous static
