Anybody here /o/ut/?
>tfw i want to lower my car for less body roll on the street, but don't want to explode my oil pan all over the trails when i pretend to rally
I'm looking into skid plates but they're a bit pricey.
>you are a massive faggot for asking /out/ this question
Pretty much, but /out/ does draw in a few engineers who like to go innawoodsing.
Make your own damn skid plate. Sheet metal from ebay and bolts and nuts from the hardware store. Bend it using a dead-hit hammer on the edge of your back porch or over a 2x4.
Or don't be a faggot and buy the real thing. Seriously. If you drop that chassis, you better protect the expensive parts underneath it. Running suddenly out of oil in a race where you're not going to be all that concerned with watching the oil pressure gauge will cost you an engine rebuild, which is much more expensive than a skid plate.
You just need a crossover my friend.
I think the Nissan Juke is the right choice for you.
But your headlights are so ugly...
Have you considered a rear sway bar to reduce body roll instead of lowering it?
Also, embrace the sway, it helps with weight transfer to initiate drifts/load the front to maintain grip.
Sway bars and underbody armor.
>not wanting a two inch lift with all terrains
>not putting on xl rally flaps and front light bar
My dream car is a Forester 2.5xt with all terrains, stage 3 tune, bumpers and skidplates.
>do light prerunning
>this is the way god sees the world
Don't mess with the suspension. It literally ruins the car.
I get it, you want to because racecar. Just don't lower it.
I had a WRX, was an awesome car. Bought it brand new in 05, traded it a few years later for a CTS-V. I always had more fun in the WRX than the CTS-V. Mostly because the CTS-V rode so much worse. It bottomed out over big bumps, speed bumps, and bad roads. The WRX just soaked it up.
You may think it "handles" better lowered, but what's the point if you're not on a race track. On public roads, with speed limits, pot holes, speed bumps, and uneven roads, the lowered car is often slower, less fun to drive, and not to mention the hit you take on resale. Any real car buyer knows, stay away from any car who's suspension has been modified.
Front and rear sway bars if you want less body roll. New tires and wheels make a big difference as well.
