As Tone Loc says:

There's a sexy little car around,
perhaps you may have seen her
She's parked here right beside me,
She's the funky grey Modena

Obeesi, lovely :)

I have a way to lower the mini z without cutting springs: hope it works for you...

-add a 2 or 3 mm spacer on the front uprights between the upright and the lower wishbones...

-add a 2 or 3 mm spacer between the H-bar and the motor mount itself

-i use the little plastic bushings that are on the Tamiya Mini-4wd cars for spacers... i'll try to post pics of my ride before and after the lowering treatment...

yeah trhanks tommi but i figured out how 2 do it myself already....

but i used the insulator around some electrical wire about 2-3mm under the front camber stering thingys that raised them whic means the chasis is lower at the front

and for the fromt i ggot some longer screws to go in2 the mount (about the same size as the ones that go in the chasis) and some more insulator 2 hold it down so it doenst go up when i sit it down on the gorund......

i hope this will help others if they need 2 lower there car, it worked for me and now my car sits 2-3mm off the ground and it works good(wih a few mods 2 the body to acocomidate for the tires 2 fit in the wheel well) and looks awesom when it is just sitting there
