    Not sure if any of you remember when I did a 'photo shoot' with my buddy. They had a 335i and a 350z.

    Well, the 350z was stock, now...it's not.

    So my buddy with the 335i made a video of the 350z now that it has been dropped and has some new wheels with bronze lips. He's still a beginner at filming, so leave him some comments on the video, and watch it in 720P.

    The car has been featured on Stanceworks and Hellaflush

    By the way, if any of you are interested and live in the San Antonio or surrounding areas, he wants to film your cars :)

    I hate the stretched tires thing on fast cars... It just looks tacky and it's dangerous.

    I would like to seem him take it to the track with those wheels/tires. Pure rice.

    He has dedicated track wheels when he wants to go to the track.

    And..the fenders are rolled

    Nice. I have to agree about not liking the stretch tires and it being too low. Otherwise it looks great though.

    Have to agree with all the negative comments. Slamming is for cruising, always has been and to be quite honest just completely stupid.

    For a car to perform it needs to be able to go around corners because that is where most time is lost. For a car to corner it needs to have suspension and to have suspension that works you need suspension travel. Even F1 cars have ~120mm of travel at the rear.

    I know a car is many different things to many different people but don't understand 720hp and a slammed car ... like adding a second seat to a F1 car or air conditioning, they just don't make sense together.

    Compare with a Porsche GT2, similar hp (nearly) and it works, and it looks low and cool but it isn't slammed. I suggest your mate aim for that look.

    I agree with you, I'm not a fan of cars being slammed where they rub, I just thought I'd share it to get feedback for a friend, it's unique with the bronze lips. I do also agree on raising the car a bit, but I do like the wheels.

    I'm not sure where the performance comments are coming from, I never listed the stats it has but this car doesn't go to the track often, it's his daily driver. I'm sure it's a pain (speed bumps, slopes, etc.), but if and when he does, he has different wheels, and the suspension can be changed.

    ... I thought the 720P meant it had 720hp???

    What does 720P mean then?

    720p is a video resolution, the higher the number, the clearer the video, to a point.

    I saw it awhile ago on Hellaflush. That particular example is a nice example of offset/stance, but some of the other cars on that site, not so much.

    I love it...

    I've been wanting to build a manual lexus GS300 for a long time now but I'm saving for my business (much better plan lol). Much like this one, combining VIP with drift. Full weight, +- 400 easy to use HP, slammed on 19s. It won't be the best drift car in the world but it'd be fun...:D
