The Dreaded Speed Bumps - SCRAPE - New Member
I am newly registered, but from purchasing my 1.8 Honda Civic three weeks ago I am a regular viewer on the site.
I love the motor but there is one problem in my opinion...
When going over speed bumps, anything over 15mph the bottom catches, whether it be on the splitters in front of the front wheels, or on the steel frame to protect the underside of the car. The missus' lives on a farm, and the road up there has many bumps and channels..I can hear the Civic cry whenever it catches.
Don't get me wrong I do not nail it along the lane, as I want to protect my new purchase. Does anyone have a solution to these problems, and no I cannot get a new missus before anyone mentions that!
I currently have the standard alloy wheels on at the moment; I am looking to purchase some new ones in the VERY near future and was wondering if a size upgrade would help the situation?
Thanks for reading guys.
