The Carolina Squat may be banned in NC

How is this a thing?

Versus lowering the car so much that you can’t clear driveways?
It’s just a thing…a silly looking thing.

Must be short session day in NC or one of the lawmakers has a neighbor who he’s pissed off at.

I think it goes a little deeper than that. When you lift the nose of the car two things happen: you decrease outward visibility and you raise the center of gravity. The law has some safety basis aside from preventing drivers from making their vehicles look like they’re carrying baby hippopotamuses in the back.

HA! Was that an intentional pun on the squatting issue? :slight_smile:

Bring on the hate, but I wish we were more like Germany in what we allow on the roads. I don’t appreciate jacked up brodozers with winches or front steel beams aimed at my head in a side collision. Or cars which are obviously falling apart.

guess they never been to CA where everything goes.

I live in NC and yes, unfortunately, it’s a thing. Half a lift kit installed just in the front. Not a small 2 or 3 inch lift kit either like near a foot. Has to be damn near impossible to see anything over the hood for 100’.

It’s the reverse of the red neck jack. That was muscle cars all jacked up in the back with slicks and skinny shorties in the front. That at least had some physics behind it to put the power down and not pop wheelies.

This new look is pure jackassery.

Wait till they see that thing where the wheels angle out. I am not an engineer but that just looks like it’s going to not end well.

Too many people aren’t smart enough to realize how dumb they look.

Tuck a dollar bill under the wiper along with a note: “Just a little help in getting your lift finished.”

Towed? Most likely repossessed knowing the credit criminals that drive lifted duramaxes when I was in school.

WhistlinDiesel on Youtube has a great destruction video series of a squatted chevy, you’ll love it.
