Old picture is old.




To make it clear (then again, given some here maybe not) that ST isn't stanced, its just low. When they're done with the car it will be, but being low is not the same as being fitted.

With regards to that ST being stupid low....what's the point of buying an ST at that point?? It would be like seeing an STI or an Evo dragging on the ground. Waste of a car

Drove mine as a DD, to include 4" of snow. I can drive mine anywhere I want to. I can drive the race car which is even lower, in the snow on new Nito NT-01's. Not sure what you mean about not being a DD. I drove the race car as a DD until the Jeep showed up and before that it was my DD since new.

That car is good for one thing, sitting looing pretty, not what it was designed for, Rally Racing. Same for a STI.

This is why I'm against stanced Evos and STIs. Goes right next to those d-bags who lift their trucks retarded high but they'll never see dirt. I'm all for stance but there are some car it just shouldn't be done to.
