    Ouch!!!! Is this the new thing now? Letting your frame drag on the ground and have sparks fly out the back? Some guy around here has something like that. I think it's retarded personally, and why would you want to screw up your truck like that anyways?? :thumbdwn:

    interesting. If they can afford money to lower it, or just have the know how... can't they make it so their body won't rub? That ex is pretty cool lookin. The whole "lets race while our frame is on the ground" is dumb though

    I read an article about 4 or 5 years ago in lowrider magazine about guys putting steel blocks on their frames for the purpose of creating sparks while moving down the road. This looks very simililar to that.

    Most have strips on metal or flint underneath their rocker panels or where ever the body touches the ground so that it doesn't rip the panels, while creating sparks at the same time.

    That is the coolest video I have ever seen. Most of the times the gas tanks are relocated when they scrape like that.

    It looks like those scenes in "Wildest police videos", where the crooks are trying to escape the police on three good wheels, with one shot out. Probably the same mentality too...... :rolleyes: :confused:

    there's a few companies out their selling titanium drag blocks now. Magnesium I think gives off a blue-ish spark but won't last as long as titanium, which I think gives off a white-ish spark.

    There are a few people around here though with body drops that actually drag body, the one guy is intentially trying to grind off his rocker panels so he can lay door :rolleyes:

    www.totallypolished.com is another site with a lot of video clips, just click on the "movies" link on their website. There's an Acura they have in there that they get airborn over a incline in the road, that definitely doesn't look good for the car....

    Im sorry, but I wish you guys wouldnt diss on all those rides, cause I BET that they have more money in their rides then alot of you have in yours, and I know you guys are not lowrider and sport truck concensious, you are all 4X4 people, but there is more then just 4X4s out there, but you guys act like there isnt..so I wish on my part, a former lowrider guy that threw sparks just like those guys in the vidoes did, dont be dissing on them,
    as my old motto says,
    If sparks dont fly your too HIGH..so spark it or park it..

    You want someone who appreciate this low level of mentality go to a low rider website. We have too much appreciation for our vehicles to waste em like that. A vehicle serves one of two purposed - go fast or go off road. That thing accomplished neither.
