Not sure if there is a Thread on this topic already, if so mods feel free to delete or someone please point me out to the thread.

Anyway i'd like to see pictures of everyone's car who is dropped and what they are dropped on.
*I'm especially hoping to see pictures of someone's car on MS Coilovers on the lowest setting*

Hey Josh!

They are custom painted RX-8's. And thanks for the thumbs up. I might swing by sometime this month to check out your dealership and do some tax-free shopping :D

Another Ms3 on rx8s in the fray. The rx8 wheel/tire combo is on 225/40/18 rubber so they are about 0.5" smaller in rolling diameter than the stock Mazdaspeed3 wheel setup (215/45/18). So relatively speaking, I acquired about 0.25" in body drop and also gained about 0.25" in fender gap. I'll should have more pics in my gallery by this weekend ... I'll swap the rx8 wheels w/ the Mazdaspeed Rays MSTII wheels and I finished aiming and installing the foglight projector powered w/ 3000k HIDs.



H&R coilovers....rear set at lowest, while retaining the rear perches. Can go about 1/2" lower w/ the removal of the spring perches. Front I haven't played w/ dropping it any further, but it has about another 3/4" of adjustment to go on the fronts. Right now I think I'm running an approximate 1.8" front drop and 1.625" rear drop.

Yeah I was trying to sell the rims but nobody bit so I'm slapping them on my car tommorow with the stock tires. Yeah this weekend looks good let's gather up guys you know with 3's and cruise or something.

That second picture is deceiving. It appears that the car is either floating or someone stole the rims and left the car on the ground. Looks good though!

Yeah, unfortunately the lighting in the picture was pretty bad. Wheels look a lot better in person, not so much in photo form–at least not with my subpar digital camera.

How do you like the Road Magnet springs? Could ride quality? Stance? Turning?

Kev, I really like what you did to your car! I will post pics when I get to wash my car.

Hey Jogadoggz, do you live in Richmond? Did you get your stuff from SR? If it was your car, then I saw your car at the parking lot my friend's GF's apartment.
