Thread: Stance in the VA

  1. #1

    Default Stance in the VA

    Dudes, i like in Virginia Beach. the roads in the 757 are horrible. the interstate has these huge expansion joins that swell all year long, and they take their sweet ass time fixing them. i mean some are so huge theyre like little speed bumps across the HWY.
    I kow you guys in NOVA know what im talkin gabout, particularly you cats in DC.

    My question is, are you guys DDing on these slammed, poked out stanced cars?

    Im not that low, and on 18s, but sometimes i feel like, OMG, that mustve broke something when i hit these bumps. I know one member, this guys, is hella slammed and stanced, but i don think he drives it around these crap roads daily. Potholes are not so bad, because i generally know where they are and can dodge em pretty well, but the damn speedbumps man.... fakk, this is why my username is "scared of stance"

    I mean seriously, how do you guys do it?
    who does has a DD stanceworks in this region, where are you, how do you manage?
    I haz 4 wimz. need 4 more.

    Im from Pa. We have pot holes every 2 feet, seriously. Avoid pot holes, hit speed bulbs at angles, and try to avoid steep inclines. Thats about it.

    i was down in virginia beach for two weeks with my car. you develop a keen eye for dodgery. and you have to accept that shit will break if youre not careful, though 64 was just annoying as hell, hahaha

    i just had to replace my swaybar, tension rods, tension rod brackets, oil pan and engine cross member a month or so ago after i hit a manhole cover in fredericksburg.

    for reference:

    im gonna drop the back another 1/2" with these new springs and go extra wide out back, i'll experiment with some spacers and see whats up, once i get the fenders rolled this weekend. but the hella stretched tires and whatnot is not going to happen.

    Damn, that sucks. At least highways are semi-driveable on. Nothing like that video. It sucks to roll hard haha. I just got new foglights with a hid kit last week, $120. Put them in and make the trip back to college today. When I stopped to get gas, I went to check out my fogs and they were hanging on by a wire with the glass broken and the hid bulbs were hanging out broken. Now I have to get all new foglights and replacement bulbs.

    I'm right with you. The district roads are awful.

    I recently picked up a new car that will be receiving a healthy dose of stance here in the very near future. Car is an '05 Mazdaspeed Miata and plans include Stance GR+ coilovers, 16"x9" +15 Miro's and some other proper shizzz.

    But the car definitely isn't my daily. It gets driven maaayyyybe once a week at best, assuming the weather is nice. Actually, the car is currently parked until my new TB inlet hard pipe comes in, because I keep having problems with the factory rubber pipe blowing loose under hard driving. Putting the new piece on after it comes in this week though, and i'm going on a bigass Skyline Drive cruise this Sunday with a bunch of car buddies. Woot!

    My daily is a '98 S10. It's a 2WD 4-cyl 5-speed, has 181k miles on it, mismatched body panels and is the SLOWEST thing I have ever driven. But it gets me where I need to go (work, gym, grocery store, etc etc) and I could care less what happens to it. Only paid $1,500 for it too

    But my last car WAS my daily, because i've only had the truck for about 4 months now. The car I just traded in was an '07 and had 75k on it. I refuse to whore out the mileage on my new car the way I did on my old car.

    Oh, and i'm in Fauquier county by the way. However, I work in Prince William county (Manassas) and spend most of my free time in Spotsylvania county (Fredericksburg)
