I know that i'm still without a car, lol but had a question for everyone relating to this topic.

With all of the lovely steep and rough driveway entrances to either houses or commercial areas around and the low front end on the GT500, do you all avoid these at all costs or do you find a way to enter and exit at an angle to prevent making contact with the road???? I would just cringe if the front scraped against the road as most of you would too I'm guessing?

Approaching the incline at a angel, slow is your best bet.

If you scrape your front splitter, you can use a metal file on the plastic and tune it up. Sand paper works too.

Thanks Grabber....I figured as much & wanted to know from owners that are used to the car, etc....Good tip on the tune up too in case it does scrape! Thx.
