    looks b-e-aaaaaaaaaautiful... i'd love to do it to mine but the mrs lives on an estate thats rife with speed bumps and i couldnt cope with listening to it scraping over them night after night ... esp going from mine to hers, bk to mine and then doing the same to drop her off.. i'd have no splitter left

    much better, could always raise it up slightly to stop it scraping!

    dont lower teh back more than the front. it will handle like a pig. better to have a bit of rake and also helps with traction. keep the front slightly lower than the rear.
