Hey everyone, glad to be part of the site, hope to get to know some of you very soon!!
Hi Peter, welcome to the site! Nice ride by the way your Focus is super clean, post some more pics when you get the chance.
Thanks jason, yeah I'm a bit of a clean freak when it comes to my ride!! I'll post some more pics today!
By the way I'm not a nighthawk, it's actually 10:00 here!
I saw the new photos, looks good. Is that your daily driver? How are the roads where you live? You got that car dropped really low.
Thanks for catching the time zone posting – I will look into that and get back to you.
Yeah it's my go everywhere car! The roads are bad enough to be honest, nothing like the highways you guys have out there!! We have narrow, poor surfaced roads! Actually there are 5 Motorways (Highways?) in Ireland that link the citys thats it, everything else is crap! The car is lowered 120mm or almost 5 inches, but the dampers are set super stiff so it never catches the road!
Okay Peter the time zones should be fixed. If you login and go to your ‘edit’ tab at the bottom you should find a pull down menu that you can select your location, let me know if that works for you. cheers!
I just got wheel spaces put on my ride and now when im driving on the highways and around town the wheel hits the fender, i think its time to upgrade to coil overs! haha.. some day!
Yeah it works perfect now, I have the right time zone! It's mad when you think that it's two in the morning over there when I sent this! You could get the arches rolled?? If it's only barely catching the fender that will give you a little more clearance!
Cool, im glad its working. I cant believe your in Ireland and we're communicating through this website – it blows my mind.
I havent put the new pics of my car online yet, but I will do that tonight. Check my Media Gallery under my profile page. The tires are sitting directly below the fender so I dont think rolling the inside fenders will help.
Maybe a set of stiffer dampers that are ride height adjustable, a cars camber increases as you lower it, so it might just sneak inside the fender! Oh and also, are you interested in the world rally championship? It comes to Ireland each year, I've met most of the team, check out Mikko Hirvonen on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?… , he is a crazy driver! Also if you want to see Irelands roads, check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?… . Now you'll realise how hard it is to have a lowered car over here! :-D
