Funny thing is I have a VW, it was slammed also, hence the stance background

People like you tend to follow the same exact cookie cutter mold. No one, at all, is surprised you come from VW's

The reason I decided to join was to move away from the stance scene and to start autox/track the car like how it's meant to be driven. I wouldn't blow money on a car to make it faster when i can't put the power down on the ground. I've been looking at buying some blistens and having them revalved accompanied by some custom springs. Will also probably pick up a set of 6ul. I'll keep you guys updated!

This will be quite the turn around if you indeed unstance your car.

people like me?
I have an open mind for all cars. People blow thousands of dollars to have an audio system that end up breaking their windshield. I don't hate on them but it's not something I would do. Everyone spends their money differently.

I'm getting out of the stance scene and trying to use the car for what it's meant to to do. I'll probably be what's holding the car back at the track to it's full potential, but hopefully, I'll become better with seat time. I'm not building the car to be competitive because I couldn't care less if I'm last place, to me it's all about having fun.

MT.net is known for it's knowledge of things that make your car go, stop and turn faster. Most people here are cheap in the sense that they won't spend any more than what it takes to do the above properly.

This place isn't about what you think is cool or fun. Go circle jerk on some other forum for that.

BS with us in the BS section, post pictures of cats or hot gf, if you have some cool build stuff make a build thread but don't post shitty stanced photos in it or pictures of you drifting unless you want to get **** on. Post about building your MS, putting a proper suspension on, gathering good parts on the cheap for your turbo build, etc...

You're not special, every noob that comes in here with a thread like this get's bashed. It happened to me when I signed up too. How this thread ends is up to you.

When the car gets finished properly, maybe you guys would appreciate it more from where it started, though i'll always love my car in any stage of its life whether it be stanced or track oriented

Hmmmm.

Bought and assembled MS: Props.

Stanced: Props off.

Decent sense of humor/ballbusting tolerance: Props.

Use of that thick skin to disregard sage advice re the stupidity of aforementioned stance: Props off.

That's not a bad start. Welcome to the forum. Pay attention and in six months from now your car will actually work better, and you'll likely pull out these stanced pics and bust your own *****. Because maturity.

Now go straighten those goddamned wheels out. It looks like somebody stole your springs.

I have a gut feeling that this kid is going to be a skilled car crafter with good taste to boot. You have to start somewhere. Sometimes you can't help where your roots come from. It is where you end up that counts.

Welcome. After you fix your ish you'll realize how it's supposed to handle And you'll forget that nonsense.

Your attitude seems good, with the exception of defending the stance crap. I would like to see this car turn into something nice.

Good luck fixing your pulled fenders. I'll bet that's gonna be real fun.

fenders aren't pulled too much, maybe a few mm's from the roll
