1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    hahaha, i get that a lot, especially from experienced car guys. regular people just ask me if it's broken, and everybody asks me if it's safe.

    it's not =P

    but here's a photo:
    http://photos-d.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-ak-sf2p/v290/130/28/6028305/n6028305_37852307_4412.jpg[/IMG]

    that was taken when the car was about half an inch higher than it is right now, with about half a degree less camber in the rear than it is now. for clarification, the fronts are only doing about -4*.

    the japanese call this style of tuning "vip", pronounced like "hip", not "vee-eye-pee". essentially, it's taking an expensive japanese luxury sedan and tuning it. you'll see different influences, like from yankee style cars, sporty/drift style cars, old school yakuza cars, european vw/audis, etc, but almost all vip cars share a few traits: 1. super low, 2. crazy wheel fitment, whether flush or tucked. most of the japanese vip tuners run coilovers, so most guys actually do drive that low (as do i).

    here are some more (better) examples (and as you can see, my car is nowhere near the weirdness/badassness/craziness of these cars yet):

    wow, i can't believe i'm talking about vip-tuning on styleforum, and sorry for the long-winded explanation!


    haha, here is a few good friends of mine:

    I have owned a VW polo, a golf and an aston martin db7 all for a few month each...I utterly hate automobiles btw...(and I'm glad that I'm living in Europe where one can afford to do that and still live stylishly nontheless- the rest of the world is as always deep Province, esp.recently one can see how cars are just the tip of the cretinous consumerist iceberg.)

    cars are_ [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    No I would go even further and declare a good and fair punishment for everyone who owns a car- maybe 20 x w.a stick should be ok...and then a hefty fine of gold/life cattle (sorry Im already talking in post apocalypse vocabulary which most of you do not have the intelligence to comprehend)...youre all still caught up in illusionary idiocies...anyway soon you will be caught up in another sort of illusionary idiocy which you wont approve of as much as in this one.

    People are entitled to expend their personal wealth as they wish, which is just one of the many reasons that considerable amounts of wealth are generated among nations; want to guess what happens when you remove this incentive to produce?

    Get off your high horse, and stop insulting people with this sophomoric attitude of yours. If you study and comprehend economics at all, this philosophy of yours will pass like a squeeky, yet putrid fart.

    I think he makes a good point; but given how our country has developed in the last 50 years-- it's impossible to do away with autos.

    The suburban Levittown model and the post WW2 'dream' is what did us wrong. Everyone having their own little house with 2 cars, living far away from the city is simply not sustainable over the long run.

    We should have been developing our cities and public transportation.

    Everyone? No, not hardly. But, many can, and will continue to do so as long as their income and interests permit.

    People in urban environments have long had cars. Rolls Royce didn't survive selling cars to suburbanites.
