  1. Was searching around for info on which carparks that will scratch your bumper or undercarriage no matter how slowly you drive Googled and found a few lists in other forums but some are really long and include carparks with narrow ramps etc. And some are outdated.

Only those that sure kenna one, thanks 1) Bugis Junction - Middle Road exit

  10. http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=206...QrKA&refer=home Looks like really more good yrs ahead..... http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/data?pid=avimage&iid=iJfeZUQzfwiQ Quote: Aug. 14 (Bloomberg) -- Chartered Semiconductor Manufacturing Ltd., the world's third-largest made-to-order chipmaker, had its debt rating lowered to junk at Fitch Ratings, which cited concerns over rising debt levels. Chartered's senior unsecured debt and long-term foreign currency issuer default ratings were cut to BB+, one level below investment grade, from BBB-, Fitch said in a statement today. The Singapore-based chipmaker said on July 25 it will report a loss in the third quarter and won't be consistent in posting profits, leading Morgan Stanley, Goldman, Sachs & Co. and JPMorgan Chase & Co. to slash their share-price estimates on the company. Chartered also raised its planned spending for the year to $750 million, from an earlier budgeted $590 million. ``The company's operating and financial performance has been lackluster,'' Fitch said in the statement. This reflects ``sustained margin pressures and a sharp deterioration in break-even levels.'' Junk bonds, classified as high-yield and high-risk debt, can raise a company's borrowing costs as a lower debt rating increases the perceived risk of a company's inability to pay debt. Credit-default swaps on Chartered jumped 12.5 basis points from before the downgrade to 247.5 basis points, according to Barclays Capital's prices. That means it costs $12,500 more a year to protect $10 million of the company's debt from default for five years. A basis point is 0.01 percentage point. The downgrade also pushed up the extra yield investors demand above U.S. Treasuries to buy Chartered Semiconductor's $300 million 6.25 percent bonds maturing in 2013. The spread widened 4 basis points to 418 basis points, BNP Paribas SA's prices show. Chartered shares have slumped 43 percent this year, underperforming the 19 percent decline in Singapore's benchmark Straits Times Index.

  11. Hi all, Are the newer Taxi like Sonata, Sokda and Mercz come with lowered or sports suspension? The gap between the fender and the wheels are much lower than the older cabs and other sedan on the roads. Regards,
  12. Recently, I was driving behind a Honda Civic with very low side-skirts, front & rear bumper lip and the body was very low. I believe that young man was not concentrating on his driving and he suddenly applied emergency brake when he saw a road hump ahead. As I was behind him, I too applied on my brakes. The next moment, he discovered that his front bumper lip got stuck on the hump and can't move his car. Instead of reversing which will only affect the front bumper lip, he moved forward and I could hear the screeking sound of the side-skirts and the rear bumper lip against the hump. He then parked his car at the road side to look at the damages. After driving my car over the road hump and stopped behind his car, he was cursing and swearing away for not concentrating and the damages incurred. He then told me that he regretted spending so much money to make his car so sporty and lowering the suspension. He was so frustrated at that moment that he told me he has decided to bring the car to the workshop to dismantle all the bodyworks. As his car cannot move due to the damages affected the tyres and since I am an AAS member, I called AAS towing truck to tow his car to his workshop while I drove him along in my car. All the way from the spot that his car was damaged until I drove his to his workshop, he kept telling me "IF ONLY THIS AND THAT" and if he had listened to his parents' objections, such damages would not have occurred. He told me that he was worried on the amount for the repair costs and does not have the money. I advised him that what happened has already happened and if he has no money for the repairs, he has to be thick-skinned and approach his family members. This is a typical scenario where one has overdone the bodywork of the vehicle to the extent of compromising on the possible damages and consequences.

    Honda lowered using Tanabe

    Have lowered my ride using Tanabe springs. Feel's much stiffer, with corner more stable even at high speed. Tackling humps and small bumps on the road with a less bumper ride. Last but not least, my ride has a much less profile look. Here are some pictures.

  17. Hi every1 ..... dis my 1st wagon so I chose Chevy Optra bcuz of d ample boot space and I bought the latest 2005 model 1.6M (std pckg) dat c/w roof rack & foglight but exclude leather seats & s/rims. Although d SE told me their upcoming shipment will arrive in 1.6A but I doubt A/T have enough Ooomph considering Optra Wagon overall body weight (1.8L and above with auto gear will be more acceptable in SG) therefore I chose M/T instead. My upcoming project will be ; 1) Upsize rims/tyes to 17" (used on my previous Mit Galant) 2) Window tinting 3) I.C.E (car audio) 4) Leather upholstery 4) Suspensions + lower springs w/chamber kit 5) Bodykits 6) Sunroof Can any bros driving wagon/estate can advise me whether is it approve to fix roof mount tv/monitor on wagon? Heard from a friend dat LTA so far only approve SUV & MPV. Read dis mths HotStuff mag advertised 2 interesting stuffs suitable for Chevy Optra Wagon; a) Bodykit quoted $850 incl installation & spray - h/p 97433252 b) Apex springs quoted $450 incl installation - h/p 96866219 Last but not least, I received lowest quote for window tinting Made in USA @ Ubi whole car for Optra Wagon $240 consists of ; front/rear windscreens and 6 windows. His h/p 96906345 I'm wondering if any bros interested so dat we can go all together & bargain $$ based on bulk order.
  18. Some people in another forum have been debating about this. I wonder if there is any merit in the argument. Now with stock suspension, the driveshafts are pitched and this robs the car of torque and horsepower. Now if you lower the car, the driveshafts straighten out therefore allowing more efficient transfer of torque and horsepower to the wheels. Discuss, please.

    Just lowered Optra

    Just install Eibach pro kit on my optra. After witnessing the whole process of of lowering, i think it is confirm impossible to install rear tower strut bar on the optra. For the front strut bar option, i don't think it is possible unless you weld the strut bar on to the chassis. . And it ain't easy taking out the suspension as well.

    Lowered Springs

    Hi All I'm new to MCF. I was just wondering if anyone can shed some light on "lowered springs". I hv a set of lowered springs from my scrapped Honda Civic esi, and since I hv not enuf $$$, I bought myself Honda Concerto instead. Is it possible to use/transfer the lowered springs to my Concerto?? Just changed all the bushings and used a compatible Civic absorbers. Pls enlighten me.
  22. Hi Guys, I am thinking of lowering my octy. Just wondering if anybody can give some advise. What are the brands and options available for lowered spring and suspension system. I wanna have the sporty look but at the same time I dun wanna forgo too much comfort. I dun wan my ride to be too hard. Thks & rgds. OPS17
  23. Guys, I am thinking of changing my rims to 15 to 16 inch without sacrificing on my suspension, as I do not want to get into a situation of wearing out my shocks quickly if I change springs. However, I would like to achieve the lowered look without this change in suspension setups. Leave as stock, although jumpy and not to my liking, I think its best. Can this be achieved by just changing the rims and tyres ? On stock, the 323 already sits quite high with 14 inch wheels. What will be the sacrifice if I change to 15 or 16 ? Speedo not accurate ? Fuel Compsumption up ? Help ... doing this for the first time on my Mazzy so lots of unanswered questions. Dun wanna get into a situation of "REGRET LATER".
  24. Hi guys Just came back from a track session....... just want to share some experiences.... I have been driving on the track before with my stock suspension for a few times before i changed to a coilover suspension a year ago. This is the first time I tried with the new setup on the track. This is some of my feedback and IMHO....on the differences... 1. stock suspension - softer, and more roll - easier to control and takes more time to settle in a corner - correction is easier and it feels more forgiving - squeaking of tyres 2. Coilover suspension - harder, much lesser roll - settling time into a corner is much faster and sudden. - adjustment much more difficult, required really undestanding of the behaviour of new setup...everything happens much faster and sudden...sometimes no warning at all..in my opinion kinda of dangerous for people who dont have the experience and skill to adjust and adapt to it. - car at limits and will give way even without squeaking of tyres. any other people has common experience to share?....
