Scud Question

OK so thinking of buying the Scuderia 16M and am interested in the ground clearance height as I have a funky lip on the drive way.

Mine was lowered to Euro Spec's.

Install the under bumpers plates - and approach all questionable curbs at an angle and you should be in great shape.

At the end of the day - I would fix the funky lip.

This! I have the "rolling" curb (seems we all do in Arizona). My CS has to go up/down from the driveway to the street at about, oh 0.0005 MPH and at a 45 degree angle. And then I'm still glad I have the under-bumper plates. Those are a must.

Also, if you have the same sort of "rolling curb" (not sure what else to call it) then there is a thingy for sale on the web that goes along the curb/street and smoothes it out. I didn't get that because the slow/angle technique works, but you can always go that route if needed.

Finally, fwiw, I doubt seeing the specs will really answer the question. It really depends upon the individual curb and the car and (believe it or not) the weight of the driver and whether there is a passenger in the car when going up/down the curb!

Plus it only takes one time to do a whole lot of damage and still being stuck with a bad curb.

It's just not worth the risk - even worse knowing your car isn't in the garage due to
the "it won' happen too me" clause.
