Remind me not to move to Austria then.... DamzI will keep the tribars with stock tire sizes, but I think I will start to check if I can do a 1-1,5" lowering. Austrian authorities are super strict on modifications. You basically can't even put a different wheel and tire size on your car if it is not specially mentioned in manufacturer docs. You would have to let it specially approved. Same with all other modifications... but I guess they don't have much data on SN95s and would not notice a mild lowering, if the spring and shocks are painted black.
It's Africa... times are always dicey. You just have to watch your p's and q's, don't wave around any excess food/water/valuables and understand the cultures. It also helps to have a mean streak a mile wide, a gun in your waistband and to not go to insecure places alone. Kinda like General Mattis says: "Be polite, be professional but have a plan to kill everyone you meet." To be fair, where my place is located is one where, even if you had 1000 hard killers by your side, the odds of getting far enough down my road to become as much of a threat to the farm's inhabitants as the inhabitants are to the invaders is vanishingly small. Before the baddies get that far they're in lethal danger for half an hour to 45 minutes at minimum. That's a long time to be under accurate and effective fire. It's also in a part of the country where the Zulu/Shona/Xhosa/Sisulu/etc..., the Bantu-stan tribes that are the aggressive ones, don't live. They're 800 miles away. Around us are mixed blood and khoi-san speakers which don't have the militancy of the others.Shit, glad you're still alive Redneck. I heard times in S. Africa are getting a bit... dicey.
