the lowest part of my car is the engine support crossmember, so much snow and ice gets built up on it it's rediculous.

From the snow we have now, my lip is only plowing the very top of the fresh powder.
But those ice blocks, usually on left turn lanes from what I've encountered.. just the sound of it hitting my under chassis...

yea i know what you mean

the lowest part of my car is the muffler in the middle of the exhaust, it's getting a beating.

also when it's cold my exhaust sits a bit higher so it's rubbing on my driveshaft

plus my lip gets filthy... it was fun doing drifts in the parking lot the first day, but now the residual snow and slush/ice is just irritating me.

The snow is now at the bottom of my door lol the snow got all packed up in my wheel well and I couldn't make it up my own inclined driveway... the best is driving over the ice chunks and hearing the *ping* as it bounces off some integral part of the undercarriage

I really should wind my coils back up a bit. Oh well, I plowed fresh powder for all the way home at 4am.
