  • Getting down with the bus, VW Bus.

    My wife got me these two busses, thought I needed something less racey I guess. While they are fun to slide around the curves with, reminds me of my VW days back in the 80’s lots of winter sliding. Anyway, I decided to have a go at lowering one of them. Got it to a nice height so far, a little forward take. Might go lower, not sure yet.
    First pic, mild drop. Second pic, more cutting required to get it that low.

    Just my 2 cents , but I wonder how it would look with a little bit of a rake to it ? Raise the back end of it and add a little bit of a larger tire . Again just my 2 cents

      It doesn’t show well in the picture but it has a noticeable rake to it. I might drop the front a little more to make it more obvious. Not to much, this is a road car not a drag racer. Lol

      Different. It doesn’t tip over in the corners anymore, but it hangs it’s tail out more. Still fun to drive.

      No ride like a low-ride! I’m not going quite that low on mine, but that’s cool.
