last weekend went to Port Macquaire NSW for a few days, almost every driveway there has to be taken on a wild angle if your car isnt as high as a 4WD. i was leaving the motel we stayed at, exiting their driveway on a wild angle and my flippin car near bellyed up. and my car is basically std XR exept the rear been lower 1.5cm ! i was paranoid at any sound i heard after that till i check underneath the car and was realeved it was all OK. crazy town, ok i shut up now !
u should see the drive way to maccas in charnwood here its a pearla it was so steep when thay first made it there was colerd plastic all over the thing from bumpers/spoilers of standard hight cars so thay shaved it down but u can still sit in the car park havein a feed and hear the sweet sound of grinding plastic. im suprised no ones forced them to do anything about it
i was in the suburbs near sydney early this year, and a few of the drive ways i went up i scraped the rear of my car on... my EF has its stock ride height, and there was NOTHING in the back.
then there was the other day back in melbourne turning into a maccas carpark, full load of ppl, LPG tank full, my car scraped VERY badly... i need stiffer springs :D
