Man what the hell is going on here? :lol: this is some funny stuff. I think drifting is stupid but I don't bash on drifters. I just say it is not my thing and move on. So what if people can only afford less expensive wheels, everyone has to start somewhere and as a community you should be able to help each other out on deals.

I love how "Shitty roads" is an excuse everyone uses to not go lower than an FRPP kit. Everyone has shitty roads no matter where you live. Being low doesn't mean you're going to trash your car. It means you have to pay attention more, which in return makes you a better driver. Now as far as "stancing" I love it. I love the look of it, and you don't lose any handling capabilities at all...

Take my car for example. I don't consider it stanced, but it is slammed:


I have EXCELLENT handling capability, and I enjoy it. I'm dropped probably over 5 inches more than stock, and I can still drive perfectly fine. Sure I scrape here and there, and scratch every once in a while. So what? that's the price I'm willing to pay to lower my car this much to get it to what I want it to be at. If you don't like stancing, fine. Don't like it. But don't go hating on the folks that do because we're the ones that did it, and we love it.

Been daily driving for years slammed and love it. Definitely a different world that isn't meant for everyone. Some ppl let other influence there judgement while others just do it. Different strokes for different folks lol. On focus it only looks good if dome right. Takes time, effort, patience, experimenting,money, math, etc.....
few my setups I do agree in shitty roads exist everywhere no matter where you live. Just be aware of the roads and don't drive like an ass. Don't see Ferraris going over pot holes or go fast in shitty roads same as us slammed/lowered ppl do too. I admit I have taken out some uneven roads and made sparks shoot out but that's the best part :D story of my life. Lowest focus in south Texas no bags all day everyday you heard




My hella flush sticker "hellaflush its ok if you don't get it"

or my plate frame that says " I <3 hella flush haters gonna hate" (:

Didn't mean for people to get so upset over this topic.

Wobb, we talked at SIF and I love the way your coupe sits. Your car is mostly the reason I want this done.

I understand "to each their own" and that "stretch and poke" is not for everyone.

I want to thank everyone for their input and pictures. This has helped me very much in my decision. It looks like money will be saved and the stanced sedan project will begin this winter/spring!! :D

We are all about sharing the love we all have for a properly stanced OEM+ focus.
How can I get in on these deals?!? :confused:

Speaking for myself, that would be the main reason why I wouldn't want a car lowered that drastically. Even with the FRPP kit, hell even stock it's possible to scrape your car - steep driveways, etc. I wouldn't want to sacrifice that much driveability. My 03' Mustang GT was lowered about 2" F/R and had to be mindfull of steep parking lot entrances, banked railroad tracks etc. When your mufflers bang on concrete it's not a warm and fuzzy feeling

Ive noticed that everyone talking crap are mostly stock too, on stockies to be correct. What people are saying is because they cant lower there cars cause they have bad roads, steep driveways,live on a dirt road they say to the people that are low it dosent look good? This thread should be closed before someone gets over the top for bull crap who cares.

Those that know not of what they speak should not speak at all.
