NO kidding and it's gonna rain for the next couple of days.

Wanna see something that'll give TacoBill a heartattack.....

I had to drive through this to get out of my parking garage to get to work today. The alley is a little V shaped. At the end it was pretty deep and I'm sure it was up the side of the car a bit

Bill, that egress looked hellacious. How much clearance do you have up front? I found out from trying to commute yesterday that the front bumper of the Veilside body kit on my car acts pretty much like a snow plow. ****, when I hit a flooded area, the car just kinda like shuddered as the front chin tried to push the water out of the way. The front chin really looks like crap now. Here's a cell phone photo I took this morning (Tuesday) of the clearance...

Um, that's my alley way, not Bill's. Bill wouldn't even let his car get that close to Lake habu

Clearance I'll have to check. It ain't much, not as bad as some cars but still.

Hey you've got those two dead weights on your axle too. You can take them off for a weight savings of about 10lbs.

that's not mine but a brand new 2009 gt/cs I rode home with and followed into town , dead weights are roads are so slick right now I need more honestly I think this city has one plow and all roads are flat sheets of ice well highway heavy salted but all side roads not touched . So come warm season are these dead weight things? a functional part ? PS they look like they are to keep the axle from spinning with like a stop bolt on it do they really have a puropose anyone Buller Buller, lol let Ferris have Bill's car for aday and give it to the Valett's

Here's are road conditions recently btw the tower picture is a parking lot in our Ferry Terminal that gets us from Victoria to Vancouver and this is not a lotta snow , but enough for idiots just to spin the tires on to polish the undersurface up to make it a hazzard.

What their purpose is I don't know. I took mine off because that was the only way the BMR relocation brackets would fit. They must not do much because this is only the 3rd or 4th car I see with them. I'd say 90% or more of Mustangs don't have them.

A little more than yours, but not much more.

Hey, you're getting your pack of smokes wet!

I'm betting NVH. Once you started modding the suspension and driveline, NVH went out the window.

It's possible but why don't all stangs have them if that's the case.

Only the cars that are out of whack from the factory get those blocks installed.
