I am just curious as to what kind of ground clearance cars have...specifically, dedicated track/race cars. I realize allot of variables are at play here so I will ask the measurement take place from the bottom of the front bumper. Thanks!

Four inches on Kermee....to the edge of the front spoiler, just clears a 4x4 which is actually about 3 3/4". I'm on 225/45/15's....

John - Thank you. Can you measure from the bottom and center of the front bumper?

Hey Tony,

Mine is 10" from the right-side bottom edge of the front bumper, to the ground. The center part of the bumper is all cut away for cooling but it seems about even.

My car is not sitting as low as I think it could with the tires I've been using lately. It could stand an alignment and corner balance and possibly drop quite a bit as the tires clear well and I just pulled a bunch more weight out. For sure my corner balance is whacked.

10.75" at my front bumper, on 205/40/16 tires. The tires make a huge difference in ride height if you're seeking low-ness. sunglasses.gif

Thanks Chris and Mark...I am playing with my ride height after some issues at the track a month ago. My car is currently 10.50" at the same point and feel I have room to lower it more if I wish. I'll play with it at Barber in a couple weeks and let you know where I end up.
