Matt, I got some spare roofing gutter if you want to try to make your own ground effects.

I read some of the comments of the other..ahh..other import owners and even they were pimping on the car.

Did Pete just say what I think he said? But yeah, we've gotta remember that these kids only get $20,000 or so from their parents to buy their new cars in the first place, so then it's up to the kids themselves to modify them to "racing specs". Some might call those gutter-ground-effects a cheap shortcut, I call it ingenuity........ Haha, no I don't. It's the dumbest thing I've ever seen.

Hey Jeff, while you're at it, why don't you take two old large coffee cans and mount them onto your exhaust tips, spray paint them "chrome-like" and hand letter "Ford Racing" on the sides.... that should get you some awesome sound and another 25hp............. LMAO
