Front splitter

Hey guys,
For those of you with m performance front splitter or similar, did it lower the clearance in front at all? Want to get them but concerned that my car won’t make it up my driveway.

The RK is 2 inches lower I believe. I'm not sure who makes the other popular one. Maybe Mode Carbon, but it looks 2 inches as well

It's minimal... Mostly because nothing hangs off the bumper, it's like an add on piece to pre-existing lines of the car...

The CRT strip makes your setup look great without much of an impact on clearance. This is the way to go if you want max clearance due to driveways, etc. Finally got the car and plan on doing the same thing.

Thanks for sharing.

Yeah, if I have an inch of drop on front with the splitters my driveway will chew them up. Alternatively, if it protrudes out further than stock I may have the same issue.

I'm fucking insulted man... How can you say something like that?! At least be honest about your frickin' comments - people might take it as fact...

It's at least 97% of the time, asshole...

3% is appreciated sir. Lets aim for 4% in 2020 as that would be a 33% YOY.

Exactly, we aren't asking for much. Just small improvements!

Baby Steps right? I mean rehabilitation takes work along with self control and being self aware.

Well put Vic! Shoei can benefit greatly from some self awareness and it will be a huge step towards his goal of a 1% improvement heading into the new year.

Maybe even take a yoga class

I think his first step is to make amends with you (Ive been treated rather well by him). I would suggest that he sends you a Venmo dollar amount to cover some future mods or a front lip?

thoughts?

I think this first step to a cure would be acceptable to you and society as a whole.

Edit: if he takes Yoga and can put his legs behind his head, he will never come here again. We need to see improvement.

I would have to think on it but I leaning towards saying "yes" that would in fact be a good first step and show his loyalty to not only be but us as a community as a whole.

PM for Venmo acct

Don't worry, it's normal to be in denial. Most people with a problem don't realize or think they have a problem.

Let's start with Venmo and giving (we are close to the holidays) will help raise your spirits.
