A lowered truck will need a lot of investment before it'll ever keep up with a compact car like a cobalt with a good wheels/tires combination.

Lowering the centre of gravity doesn't mean better handling.

and im no where near angry, im actually laughing at the fact that you keep trying to belittle me with what you think are whitty additions to comments, but they just continue to make you look like a tool.

and also, you said 20 years ago in your orignal post, but now its 1980, making it thirty years? make up your mind if your going to argue with people
Old wheel style is old.

You're so clueless, i'm not going to waste time with the rest of that retarded post.

straight from wiki


Quote:
Lower center of gravity is the principal performance advantage of sports cars, compared to sedans and (especially) SUVs. Some cars have light materials in their roofs, partly for this reason. It is also part of the reason that traditional sports cars are open or convertible.

Body lean can also be controlled by the springs, anti-roll bars or the roll center heights.
Quote:
Lowering the center of gravity will always help the handling (as well as reduce the chance of roll-over). This can be done to some extent by using plastic windows (or none) and light roof, hood (bonnet) and boot (trunk) lid materials, by reducing the ground clearance, etc.

Because we all know wiki is gold.

Lowering is only part of the equation. There are much better ways to improve handling.

lol see, you and mrjonesjr discard wiki as BS, when it proves you wrong, when everybody else agrees with it, because it doesnt make them look like a dbag for arguing over something so trivial and proven as lowering a vehicle increases its handling.

a lowered mustang will out preform a stock height mustang, guaranteed.

@smakes: i didn't say wiki was wrong, i said, just go and read my post again.
Oh and, a lowered mustang always has something else that comes with the model, think about it.

RangerSport: Go throw a lift kit on a 'vette and tell me it still has good handling... OH!, make sure you're next to a cliff when you do it.
