love exposed bolt over fenders
Porsche offered it OEM with the 993 GT2... and it's still the most awesome Porsche ever
Those guys that build their cars for the perfect flush stance do it for purely aesthetic reasons. If you see someone pulling up in a Golf with 18x9s and 10s, slow down, then air the suspension out to where the tire is making contact with the fender you can rightfully assume that type of car isn't going to see any track time. The stance kids build their cars to hard park and be featured in one of the many HD videos with a dubstep soundtrack. I like the flush movement, many in here do not.
The reason the flush movement is hated by so many is because it ruins what most see as the true purpose of the car. Take a Golf, unarguably one of the more popular "stanced" vehicles, for example. Volkswagen has built a reputation on the small, nimble, excellent handling hatch. When you bag it on a wheel/tire combo that doesn't actually fit it kind of ruins the dynamic the car was originally intended to uphold.
These Rauh-Welt Porsches are clearly meant to be driven. If you watch any of the videos associated with them they are working on, driving, or racing the cars. They clearly do exactly what they were supposed to do, and in the spirit of modification, do it better.
I love Rauh-Welt as a whole and whole heartedly support anything that helps more of them hit the road. That 1552 car is nuts and those Split Tarmacs are one of the best looking wheels I've ever seen!
TL;DR: Flush ain't functional, RWB is.
I like and respect RWB, their cars are pretty rugged & racey, but I would rather have a Singer 911 than any of these, but that's just me

I know the terms hoon and hooligan have less than glamorous meanings to people from other countries (Aussies, especially), but Hoonigan is a US company and mixing the words hoon and hooligan together is nothing more than a tongue-in-cheek reference to having a good time in an automobile.
As a matter of fact, when Ken Block and MWRT visited Australia for the WRC leg an Gymkhana 4 World Tour, they teamed up with the Aussie government in spreading their "Hoon Responsibly" campaign
this thread is for lovers...
loving the purpose built rawness the RWs have. lemme check if i've got my Powerball numbers in order, and I'll be making a trip... First to Singer to build a car for me, then to Raul Welt for finishing.
and another congrats to 1552 and Brad! I spent plenty of money over the phone with Steve B. back in the day, and continue to enjoy what you bring to this community.
dare I guess that this is Ken Block's car? Why doesn't he just start dating Giselle so we can really hate on him?!Originally Posted by hoonigan
LOL to the newbies that don't like "tacked on flares" and equate RWB with the Stance fad
