That's the plan now. Anyone know how good BC coils are for drifting? 2 full time jobs will defiantly be paying for a lot of fun stuff this summer

It's probably just the distortion from that action cam you're shooting with, but I think it looks terrible.

Isn't there a point that you've gone waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay past that lowering doesn't significantly benefit handling?
