SPEEDBUMPS!!!

im not overly bad considering the car all the way down, but there a right pain considering i cant get to my house without going over some (matt knows what i mean)

and i cant get to kazs house without going over any either, i even have to go a different way to kazs house to avoid some

the only problem i get are

mudflaps are pretty close to the ground so they take some abuse
exhaust middle box hits 90% of the time
and if i dont take it right or go even a tad to fast my wishbones hit the speedbump, i think its them anyway lol

things can only get worse Twisted Evil


what problems do you lot have?

just curious really

Speedbumps arent to bad a problem, Just take them really slowly. - The stupid rumble strips piss me off though ! You know the ones that are before a 30 zone dropping down from a 60. Usually the bumps get worse as you go along and it makes my driveshaft knock on the front chassis leg No

Getting off my drive is a bit of a pain too. Garage is about 4 foot below the road so theres a bugger of a hump where my drive meets the road Evil or Very Mad Had to remove the centre box from my exhaust to get the car low enough !

Spiltters changed more tha your mums underwear.

Speed bumps in Ireland are SAVAGE compared to here, got the sill stuck on one going into a shopping centre. Wishbones have taken some abuse, mid section always cops it as well.

my car isnt to bad on speedbumps, apart from the jolts and the plastic yellow and black ones (like bricks) in the college car park and i usually smack the sils nd other stuff on them if i go more than 1mph

and once in london i tried to straddle one so i didnt feel a bump and i hit pretty much everything from the front to the back on it Sad single track roads normally catch my splitter out... im on my third number plate :S

Gotta be crawling over otherwise it'll catch. It'll still catch on a few with it crawling. If there's more than me in the car it'll catch no matter what. Going through the middle's the only way.

The splitter, sub frame, exhaust and rear splitter have taken their few knocks, clatters and bangs!
