Heres my mini with 1.5 degrees worth of negative camber up front (also riding on bump stops) and the rear is running 0.5 degrees of negative camber.

Lowering a car to the point where it effects the handling and makes it un-drivable is just daft.

If your cars running on the bump stops that means you have no suspension movement and the car must be an absolute turd to drive.

I think this one is the best I've seen it looks intense!

This is how low I'd like mine when it's done, looks like it took a lot of work to get like it though.

Yeah you are right with no suspension movement (on the front that is) but it's hardly a harsh ride compared to other cars i've been in. It used to be off the bumps on the front but as the rubber cones have sagged, the ride hasn't actually altered at all. I like it anyway :)
Oh and the orange mini does look good.

I'v lowered my car a fair amount. Its pretty much on the bump stops at the moment and handles like crap but its not a race car so this doesn't really bother me. My wheels also rub on the rear arches quite alot. I only really went this way as I wanted to go for a VWish look to the car.

I have camber on the front and have the brackets to go on the rear. I'v just not got round to fitting them yet.

I'm still a bit off trying to get it as low as my mates caddy thought.

When I take her off the road I plan on tubbing the rear arches and fitting some coilovers. I'v got some wider wheels in the way soon as well so I think I may have to rase the front up so I can get any kind of turning circle.
