Look at what's happening with the american car scene, all the cars are the same. all the engine swaps, brake and wheel setups are the same. I hope that I never see the japanese car scene go the same way, but sadly it has already started
Dont mean to rub anyone up the wrong way, but JNC has been like that since ive joined. Theres an un-written rule here that states "must be undriveably low, wheels must stick out of arches, must be done this style" and so on and so - its not limited to just here, like you pointed out its accross a few different "scenes" [ie VW, Stanceworks crap etc]. Cars stopped being about modifying and individuality a long time ago, now its build-to-conform-with-the-crowd sorta crap.
Ive been singled out here once before about my car - I was going to put 17" 3 piece wheels on it which naturally earnt me the wrath of the 13x10 brigades. Do i care? Not one bit - they can go have their over-stretched 185's on their wheels, ill prefer to be able to continue to fit my 300mm discs and twin piston rotors under my wheels, along with having a decent contact patch on the road because lets face it, with a 500hp roller bearing turbo I NEED IT.
The thing most people dont understand about the car scene any more [crap, im not even 25 yet im talking like this] is your supposed to modify the car TO SUIT YOU - improve on areas where YOU feel the car needs improvement. Lost on many that just go the wheel-slam-dildogearknob-fuzzy dice route because thats the accepted norm.
I need power, i need RWD, i need handling, hence youll never see ANY of my cars with 10mm of suspension travel till the bump stops
