I don't understand how this is "built to perform" when obviously it looks like it could barely handle driving in a strait line.
Yeah I was let down on the built to perform aswell, and i hate ultra stretched tires and i especially hate it when people do it to Subaru's, Skyline's, and other cars built to handle not to be trashed by the stretch and poke craze.

I would think that the tires would wear out relly quick if the body does not cut a ring out of them at every bump.
if it does anything like the ones that came on our car did

Anything that lists "oil cap" in the mods is instantly not worth reading.

That car is an embarrassment. I hope the owner comes into a situation where handling is priority and he quickly realizes how badly he's compromised the car's performance with this worthless (and sometimes dangerous) trend.

And a huge LOL @ the "JDM" louvered headlight lid feeding air to the wrong side of the motor.
