My homeboy asked a cop here in my town and he said you can hit the switches as long as your tires dont get off the ground.But still I dont hit the switches in front of the cops. ;)

those are only Cali specific. You know how it goes, cops can be tougher in different places.

PEEPS from the TWIN CITIES, that we rolled with after the back to the 50s show, said if a cop seen us hitting switches, we'd be getting our cop impounded and us giving tickets

BUt up our ways, we gas hop in front of cops, and the escort us :biggrin:

I was told when I had my caprice, that you could hit'em while driving as long as all 4 wheels stayed on the ground. On the other hand i have witnessed cars hopping and even gas hopping on the west side with police right behind them.

:uh: From experiance, NO YOU CANT HIT THEM WHILE ON A CITY STREET!!! At a stop light,it usually cool. They dont say too much, and it's easy to fight in court. The ONLY legal place to hit them, Is in a parking lot. ;) :uh: No ands, if, or buts. Thats it.

I got pulled over one night and threatend to have my car towed. I was warned i would get a ticket/fine for 'wreckless' driving. Another friend of mine blew a hose in the parking lot we use to meet in and they hammered him with a huge clean up bill and fine for blowing a hose cause of all the fluid!..

I've been pulled over by St. Paul cops, Just to see my set-up. And another time, I was at a stoplight on Maryland, And 35e. It was about 2 am, A cop pulled up next to me, and asked me to him 'em for him. Some are cool as hell, some are dicks. It mostley depends on YOUR attitude at them. ;) I was NEVER pulled over for front up,ass down, or Ass up, front down. BUT, ALWAYS pulled oveer for rollin sideways. ;)

Well since this turned into story time, on my 1st w/juice I got pulled over after I only had the front connected. The rears were in, but no pump to them yet. Just wanted to roll it real quick. Drove about 2 miles and got pulled over. Gave me an illegal suspension ticket, asked if I had hydraulics, etc, I didn't even have the back seat in. Went to court with the car parked outside (even of course) and said that I fixed it - no ticket.

You definetly will get a Wreckless driving violation, or a "Exibitionism" ticket.

Believe me, and the later is a federal violation since all this fast and furious bullshit.


So keep an eye out, they dont have to write a law on "Hydraulics" or "Illegal Vehichle Suspension Modification"

to ticket you, laws are made to apply to more than one situation.


Dont rely on the fact cops just dont stop ya, cuz every cop is different :uh: ;)

what you can get a ticket for and what you can get pulled over for are two completely different things. if any wheel leaves the ground its a wreckless driving ticket, you can get pulled over for anything the cops feel like harrasing you about, and sometimes even get bullshit tickets, but they are usually easy to fight. there is a law about how high a car can be but im not sure how many inches it is, a car can also be as low as you want as long as it doesnt scrape. there is no law about mechanically adjusting your suspension while on a city street, but use your best judgement, if your out of control your gonna get a ticket. basically just try not to hit it when cops are around. especially be careful on university on fri and sat, they just want a reason to kick us out of there, ive heared it all down there. i found all that stuff out by calling the mn state patrol, and they went through the law book with me. they said it should mostly hold true but every city can have their own ordinances about things like that.
