I would lower it for sure but like an inch and half. Don’t wanna slam it too low

I’ve been going back and forth on that myself. I think I’m going to wait for Fortune to come out with a set of air piston coilovers for the new Z. Best of both worlds

Different strokes for different folks, but I really dislike the lowered look. A lowered stock car body just looks super awkward to me, like your shocks are broken and your car is on the verge of coming apart.

Sure, race cars are also lowered, but they have purpose-built fenders and the tires are fairly centered in the wheel wells. This, to me, is how it should look.

Can someone educate me on this part of the car culture w/ slammed and crooked wheels? Is this kinda like the pants hanging down low-to-thigh fashion culture?
Pretty much; just for show.. It has no real benefits in driving/tracking. Actually much worse in both situations.

God, yeah. Imagine driving that thing in the rain, let alone trying to turn (dry or wet). You have the contact patch of...well, hardly anything. Crap for a turning radius, too. Can't even fathom what other stressors not even considered when developing the car are put onto other parts of suspension, etc.

It looks fucking retarded and drives even worse than it looks. Who needs contact patch, anyways.

My Z will see plenty of snow, the only thing I'm dropping is money on a set of winter tires.
