So you have no trouble driving with 4-5" of snow on the ground, and being that low?

Now im not going to lie its not the funnest thing in the world. but its possible with out a hiccup. AND YOU GUYS ARE LUCKY YOU HAVE VERY LITTLE HANGING BELOW YOUR CAR!
But I love smashed oil pans, don't you?
I'll be dumping the Focus for a B5 S4 soon or if I can find a clean MK3 GLI or GTI.

Nope it just kinda pushes it out of the way my cars like a snow plow and out here in wa even on the mountain passes they keep the roads below 2" or 3"
And I run snow tires that's the only thing I change blizzaks on all 4 and I've never been stuck the only thing that is a problem in the snow is I can't get chains on if the dot is requiring it so I'll have to risk a ticket

So as of tomorrow we will be 11 weeks in since this thread was created, and that's not even counting the amount of time before that when the fitment issue was first brought to light. Continual promises of 'this weekend' and 'next week'. This is turning into another vapor-ware thread.

I emailed V-Maxx again, which I would advise you to do also. I don't know anything till they tell me.

But you said you are the one getting the rear adjusters. You are the one that keeps saying this coming week or weekend. Just read through the last page or two of the thread.

Yes I did say I was getting the adj mod done, but until V-Maxx gives me the go-ahead and funds to have them all made I'm waiting on them

I have to say, if your car acts like a plow, aren't you worried about damaging your bumper?

And raising the chance of snow building up wedging against the under engine tray? Like a wedge effect.
