to tell the truth... the rear in the first picture is not how it sits normally... the a*** was squatting cos i was accelerating with the break on... makes for nice effect though..

Good to see all these newcastle members. Maybe we can whip up a cruise and take over the foreshore. With some REAL cars.
By any chance have any of you guys from newy seen a white lancer, with huge chrome wheels, and a huge body kit, and the front bar is missing. If so, i know that guy, and there is a funny story behind the missing front bar.

heheheh, i actually was going to lower the front more... i have no dramas what so ever turning lock to lock even with a full car...

the lowest point of the car is the exhaust which is 130mm off the ground...

Looks good mate. My only complaint with it is that the front looks like it is sitting higher than the back on the wheels. If you could get it to look level or the back slightly higher that would be awesome.

as i said.. the first photo is of the rear end squatting, it normally sits with about 15mm of the tyre showing in the rear and i measured thje side bump sills and there is only 3mm difference from the ground from the front to the rear...

it will only sit really low on special occasions such as cruises etc as the camber is unbelievable and tyre wear just burns a whole in my pocket, so everyday driving will consist of having Kings SSL's in the rear...
