    (verb) - to adjust a car's camber, ride height, and spacing, so that the sidewall of the tire sits as flush as possible with the fender/quarter panel. A common trend and style impersonated on drift and show cars alike, originating from the older Japanese domestic market.

    From urban dictionary.

    Looks like a human with Mordor orc legs. But i can see why people do it. There are even men wearing sagging pants, so it is not a surprise. :sick:

    There are some stance cars that I really appreciate without ever having any intention of doing it to my own. Always loved flared wheels and body kits, but the ones with the ridiculously cambered wheels do nothing for me at all.

    That said, seen a couple of really great ones!

    those cars looks good with those boy kits and lower ride heigths, and without too much camber, i wonder how the 458 Ferrari would "handle" if it had the same camber as the Honda civic in the fist pisture :roflmao:

    The only thing I see about those weird body and suspension mods is wasted money. It's like taking a perfectly good car and making it unsellable.
