Welcome to MT Ben

Looking much better without the stripes mate :thumbup1:

Do the Vmaxx's go any lower?
Yeah the front is wound up as high as it goes at the moment, just whilst i sort a few things out and for winter, they will be going down in the next few weeks :)

Haha oh really? And I thought I was being different with the plate!!
Yeah I know it's looking high at the moment but it will be well and truly floored very soon!!

Looking good, you like the stance look eh? Your wheels need spacers though ;)
Thanks :) yeah I know still lots of work to be done when it comes to getting the stance right, I'm gunna put some slightly bigger tires on the front as I still want it to perform, and I'm pretty sure the front bumper will hit the floor before the arch gap disappears when I lower it haha
