CAPESTANCE SLAMO-METER 1

Platterkloof Office Park.
years ago the trend was chrome wheels, neon lights, big mouthed
bumpers and fast and furious styled stickers. Now days that’s
called rice. But the fact of the matter is that it was a trend
back in the day. So in time, trends come and go. The latest trend
at the moment is STANCE. Slam your ride to the ground. I must
admit, it does look good. So when I heard wind of this event,
the Slamo-Meter, where cars would be measured to see how low they
were to the ground, with an actual “device”, I was
very curious to see what it would all be about. That and anything
new is rather refreshing in the local car scene these days. CapeStance.com
played host to this "ground breaking" event at a private
office park, far from Ghost Squad eyes, or fingers (2 fingers),
so it was safe to say the diehard slammers came out in force even
in the freezing cold winter’s night. Well done to the CapeStance
crew for pulling this off. We hope to see more soon! Check the
gallery below for the pics. Enjoy.
crowd waiting as the first car lined up to be measured.
heard the term "just a rim and a drop"...? Well there
you go! Awesomeness!
seen someone wear white gloves to change rims? Yeah, fanatical
I say. (Or maybe he was just cold?) All sorts of tricks were being
implemented just to see the car drop a few millimeters.
Keagan got himself stuck at the boom gate at the entrance of the
office park, then he got stuck here too (parking lot entrance)...
Mk1 should be in a museum! It's so clean and neat I would be scared
to drive it! Love the look!
eventually gave up. Driveway - 1. Bumper - 0.
school rides like this Toyota SRS are far and few between which
makes seeing an immaculately clean one like this just breathtaking.
Love the choice of rims too!
