Big demand for State of Stance
WHEN it comes to car shows in KZN, petrolheads have a firm favourite, the annual State of Stance hosted at the Pavilion Shopping Centre Westville this weekend.
Maritzburg’s Desmond “Dizzy” Govenden will be the master of ceremonies and told
Wheels the name refers to the lowered suspension most performance cars have.
Govenden says young drivers often take a grinder to their coil springs to drop the suspension — or the car’s “stance” — but warned this destroys a car’s handling.
He said the adjustable coilover suspensions that will be on display at the show, allows cars to hunker down for tracks and can then easily be adjusted to provide ride height over speed humps for safe driving.
“State of Stance celebrates the car culture with displays of precision driving, performance equipment and all the music and lifestyle activities that goes with the freedom of driving,” Govenden said.
Now in its fourth year the State of Stance 2018 offers festival goers drifting, spinning, an SA Strongman Challenge, bike stunts.
Static displays include a sound off, hot rods, custom bikes and dyno tests.
The event will also feature some of South Africa’s most talented local artists, with thousands of patrons traditionally turning the day’s Drift Arena into a dance floor at night.
