R35 Underside

Hi All,

Recently bought an R35 (Daytona Blue), which suffice to say, I'm in love with. It truly is everything I imagined.

I've got an underground carparking space (London), and frustratingly, in a bid to get the downramp to fit, it is incredibly steep. It's fine at the bottom of the ramp, however on the top, where it levels out, I've noticed I'm bottoming out around 1/2 - 3/4 along the length of the car. I can *just* get it to clear if I swing it diagonally across, but it's really narrow so I haven't mastered it.

It sounds like minor scraping, but what I'm wondering is, is this going to cause big problems? I've taken a look underneath as much as possible, and can't see anything (I imagine it's the exhaust in the mid point catching), but wondering if there's anything to worry about hugely.

It's all completely stock too, so standard exhaust etc too.

Any help would be welcomed!

Thanks

Exhaust is most likely catching point.

I'd suggest getting it on a ramp just to be 100% sure though

I'm inclined to agree with CC on the exhaust theory as it is the only metallic object that projects through the undertray. As long as the car isn't grounded and rocking in the middle, you should be okay

I would say that's spot on! Yeah, it's a very quick scratch - definitely not staying or rocking on that point. With consistent light scratching - what's the potential damage here? How resilient is that section?

Other than perfecting the swing drive down, I'm not sure there's much I could do tbh.

Are you able to take a pic of the exhaust? the standard one shouldn't catch, its normally the 102mm systems which droop down and catch.

And the 90mm systems. Mine is a titanium 90mm and sits 4 inches off the road. I've had a protective steel 'bandage' wrapped around it at the vulnerable point as a precaution, but luckily the low point on these cars is at the back between the rear wheels so it rides up with the wheels, if the low point was midway front to rear it would be undriveable.

Also try different suspension setting and if you can take a slightly diagonal angle

I have the same problem with a particularly high speed bump in my daughter's school car park. No matter how I try to clear it it scrapes on the exhaust. I now have permission to drive through the staff car park in order to avoid it!
