I just got my FK coils on and my car is nice and low. The speedbumps at my school are too big, so big that my oilpan hits, and thats terrible. So does anyone here know how to reduce the size of the speedbumps. I've heard of a few things to lower them, first of all soak gasoline in them then set them on fire. This wouldnt work cause my school is on a main road and i'd get caught. I also dont want to chunk the bumps up because most of the school would know its me and im not trying to get busted. So if you know of any ideas, such as soaking them with something to get them soft then just hammer them down a bit, please post. By the way they are made out of asphault, and heres a pic of the ride.



BTW these are not my rims, i should get my powdercoated DE's on next week

i don't know how low you are, or if getting a skid plate would make it to where you wouldn't be able to go over the bumps at all, but maybe look into getting a skid plate. I know they hang about an inch from the oil pan(maybe less), but this would at least prevent you from getting in trouble with the campus authorities

Re: (handycandyandy)

have any friends with snowplows? because i know sometimes the plows will bust them... the kind that are put after the pavement was laid tend to rip up... ones that are bonded into the pavement (paved over) are there for good...

why not angle over them pretty much sideways and go very very very very slow, thats what i do. but i also know where all the speed bumps in town are and avoid them at all costs

well if you can't handle bumps, don't lower your car, its that simple, or bag it. i know people with dubs out here lower than me, and they man up and haul over driveways and bumps like champions. i'm not going to name drop but you know who they are and they're like inches lower than me
