The 300zx is rwd and worth more than your car..... what are you saying? I'd take that over your gsx and my old talon.

That wagavan is unsafe... I see beeds being broken in seconds on the right bump. Those hondas are hella ###. You got the worst examples except for that 300.

Jesus read above man :banghead:

not sure I get this whole "hella-flush" thing but then again I don't care enough to look into it.

would be nice if all the wheel manufactures would release microstructures of the materials they are casting and processing so informed people could draw a real conclusion about their quality.

but maybe i'd be better off just being jdm or nor-car cool to be safe

More ignorance and mindless ranting but you still didnt answer any question i asked you. Your rx8 does look good but from what your saying every lower car with proper size wheel and tire is "hellaflush". I think your confused on the definition and are just trying to categorize your car with a fresh trend to fit in. and for someone with so many nice cars and such a bad ass life you sure spend alot of time on the internet. Im done with you unless you can answer the questions i asked. Otherwise they are aimed at someone that can maybe clarify the subject.

Stance nation a site you listed as legit shows many cars with extreme camber and stretched tires, which goes against

They also have "form > function" in the title of their website.

So your obviously clueless. Please drop it. My questions are aimed at someone who knows the topic.



But again you forget, I am the one who live in Northern California right in the HEART of Hella-Flush territory. See, I'm not going by what I read on a random site, I am going by what has been set in stone since we started doing this years back.

Stance Nation is just that.. Stance nation. It doesn't ONLY carry Hella-Flush content but it will give you a nice spectrum on what there is in terms of degrees of "Stances" or whatever you'd want to call them. My point is that Hella-Flush is SPECIFIC.

If you say you hate cars with uber camber and rusted hoods with blown out tires and roof racks, then thats great because so do I.

I just described to you what Hella-Flush is. The problem is is you are doing the same thing every other person who doesn't know better and simply think that every single dropped import is "Hella-Flush". No, they are not. Are they imitating Hella-Flush? Possibly but that doesn't meant that they are.

I guess its hard to describe. Its like the brands Xerox and Lexan. When someone wants a paper faxed or copied they ask for it to be "Xeroxed" when someone wants Polycarbonate plastic for a window they are installing they say, "Do you have Lexan?" See Hella-Flush in a sense is a specific brand that it seems every single dropped import is being moonlighted under. VIP guys run into the same issues with "branding" that we do. Yes we are the "hot-trend" like "Trendy name" most notable in magazines and forums around but you have to remember that we still have specifics.

I'm not saying you are wrong in hating the things you hate. You are entitled to that, I am simply another Hella-Flush person who is trying to keep people from blurring the lines and generalizing us all into the same bubble. Thats all. I'm not trying to be a dick or high and mighty its just frustrating because I ehar it all the time.

"Oh I saw this little car craping the ground with ballooned tires and a rusted hood.. Hella-Flush is ###." Then I gotta spend 30minutes explaining to them that they are referring to the #### V-Dubbers and their Euro trash cars many of them build. I dunno I'm just tired, its gets exhausting going over this I suppose things have gone too far that we'll just have to live with it.

Just sayin, I am sure that if you saw a line up of true "Hella-Flush" cars that you'd like 90% of em. They wont be on hacked springs, they wont be rice buckets with blingy wheels, they'll just be "different".:rocks:

This site has a lot of good examples of Hella-Flush cars:

Hellaflush – Fatlace? Since 1999

Very few overly extreme cars as you believed and they're all modded to some extremities.. There are some that are pushin it but most of the ones I saw were listed as VIP or somethin else but either way you'll notice many of the cars are more tame than you are thinking.

Some of that needs to be stickied right there haha. I can understand a trend being started then everyone jumping on the wagon. Your definition of hellaflush looks damn good and i could get into that. I still hate the name though, i cant stop thinking of the southpark episode where cartman wont stop saying hella.

I think someone needs to come up with another name for the slammed camber guys so they quit calling it hellaflush. That shit is just retarded. Thanks for clearing that shit up. Damn its late and metalocalypse is on :hellyeah:

Some of you need to get out and meet new people, talk to people and see what dif. car scenes are about before acting like a dumbass and completely bashing everyone else. Get to know people, know the scenes before you just write it off. all my family and family friends are into muscle cars, and tractor pulling LOL. im into sport compacts and road racing, and yet we are all smart enough, and mature enough to have a mature conversation. My dad doesn't particularily like dsms but he respects them, just like i respect the muscle shit. sometimes you have to grow up, and get out of your little box and check out other cars, people, scenes e.c.t Diversity FTW.

I'm with TSI Image on this one. It's sad how disapointing some dsm guys are no days. Its sad how these cars went from owners doing things dif. and innovative to a bunch of guys with closed minds, and well... the some of the owners that have them now. if you don't like hella whatever then thats fine, but as someone said, look into the hella flush stuff and see what it really is. dissing every hella flush poser car is no different then someone dissing everyone who has a dsm and having them refeared to a cheap ass because the have a dsm, or a ricer (dare I say the word) cause they have a honda.

What some people are to stupid to realize is that your doing the same shit to others that people have do with dsms. morons on the internet spewing B.S and creating sterotypes and mis information. Thanks to guys like you im refeared to being a cheap ass, having a shitty unrealiable car, or something along the line cause i own a dsm. People said shit about us, you guys shit about hondas, who say shit about domestics and vice versa. Shits annoying. If you don't like something thats fine, but grow up.

Just because their is a suposed hella flush car doesn't mean it's really hella flush, just like just because someone owns a dsm doesn't me they are a really dsm guy. Real recognize real, we all know who is who
And I don't mind hella flush at all, and before you give me "function over form" I ###### have more money in suspension and drivetrain in my road race dsm them most people have in their whole builds.

I Really could care less about any of this, though I agree in part with D's GS-T...

These threads where people get all worked up over all this is kind of stuff are really embarising... .

Although, What I don't get is how this got from what the OP posted pics of to the "HellaFlush"?
I hate labels... . Quite trying to label your car or some other persons this or that and it take it for what it is A CAR!

Everyone gets a butt hurt when some OP asks for peoples opinions and people tell them! eventually the thread get's locked because people want to argue with someone about there own beliefs:aha: Which is really pointless.

anyone have any DSM's especially 1G's that is into these category type interests? or pictures or anything.

This is what the OP asked ^ So far I've seen TWO people Post pics of their own cars in the last 4 pages:confused:

And honestly I don't see how they Do... But that's just my Opinion:thumb:

Get over it poeple and Just post a pics Of YOUR CAR if you have them if you think it fits into whatever you want to call it.

If the personal attacks continue, and you know who I am talking to, this will be closed.

FWIW, there's at least one flamer in here who claims stance/flush/whatever and rocks a car on balloon tires, terribad rims...but he has a tow hook! I won't name names, but recommend that you not talk down to DSM owners or Hella-folks as the car is slow AND ugly. That's hella-hypocritical.

Continue on, but see if you can leave your incomes, backgrounds, hopes, dreams, and aspirations at the door and NOT work them in to every post; it oozes insecurity.

I've learned to just keep quiet about my "hellaflush" love. This website is not open minded about these sort of things, and it is a mainly performance based website.

90% if dsmers are not open minded. If its not a 600hp car, no one cares.:rolleyes: Dsm'ers arent into looks, or wheels. This is one of my reasons for parting out. I got sick and tired of the dsm crowd and their attitudes toward the other cars. What i find really funny, is I jump on here every once in a while. I find these posts about bashing on hondas and what not. Then I see the main guy that is bashing on the cars, is a 1g car with a 16g at 16psi. Maybe putting down whopping 200whp. The dsm crows needs to grow up and be what it use to be 2 or more years ago. There are just too many young kids out there now that give a terrible name for the dsms.

On the hellaflush subject. I have states before, I like it when its tolerable. They are pushing that to the limits now, which I find ridiculous.

I nearly posted the same thing after your initial post. The biggest mouths are making less power, with more choices available to them, than most were 10+ years ago. It's silly.

Sorry to get off topic, but TSimage, could you post some pics of your RX-8?
It's a beast and looks great.

Please do, I am interested in this as well, and seeing as I am OP, I think I have a say of knocking my own thread off subject!

Good Friend of mine Will has a RX8

Tein S Techs Springs, Tokico adjustable struts, Exhaust Greddy SP2 Exhaust, Cat Delete Pipe, Stock 18X8's w\ some Sticky 245's

I can see that there is a large spectrum with the whole stance thing. A few of the cars look great, others not so much.

I think of show vs go in the car world as the same thing as the clothes fashion fads...

You'll have people who will drop big bucks on name brand clothing, and keep up to date on clothing fads and then you have people like me who are happy with $5 hanes plain black tees, and maybe occasionally a Ralph Lauren polo (but that's rare).

Just to clear up Ebonics post #115, the Euros did it first, not the other way around. There are restrictions about tires outside the wheelwells overseas.

I like LOOKING at stance but how about DRIVING with stance, two completely different things. Theres a point where the car isn't practical anymore because of how low it is and only looks good until you find yourself driving into a parking lot or hitting a speed bump. I got fed up with my car being way too low and raised the damn thing, everytime I'd hit a bump everyone in the car (including me) would cringe. :barf:

"I only like the evo" you guys are greeaattt, funny how the only car you guys like is a mitsu :rolleyes:

A daily driven 10 second car running e85, with a huge cam, a 6 puck unsprung clutch, and a huge turbo that gets 15 miles to the gallon makes just as much sense as a daily driven "dumped" "hellaflush" "vip" car.

Dsmers need to get out of the little performance box there all stuck in, its not bad to have a nice looking car.

So what if a car scrapes pulling into a driveway? Your clutch engages harsh as fvck, and chatters its ass off leaving that red light.

:applause:
