The term Hellafail refers to the modification of a vehicle described below: The excessive lowering of a vehicle that the controllability of the car no longer, or barely, allows. Typically the tires are hidden well in the fenders of the vehicle. But in order to have a good footing and run the required excessively wide wheels with tires only tight enough to fit the wheels, the car must have an excessively negative camber. If you're behind one of these cars, don't be surprised that the rear tires look like “/ \”. The rear tires are likely bare on the inside and still look brand new on the outside, and there is likely only an inch of contact with the ground.
too much is just too much ...
A Hellaflush- or Hellafail Auto (also Camber-Style od. Onikyan called) often can not even drive into a driveway without tearing off the bumper or damaging the oil sump of the vehicle. Some cars are so extreme that you can not even turn the steering wheel of the vehicle completely in both directions without the tires pending, grinding, etc. Lowering the car looks cool, but should be done intelligently and responsibly. Changing the chassis geometry (which was found out by experienced and competent engineers in years of development), to the Hella Flush-Stance-Bro look to achieve is unwise and, at most, still funny as a “joke”. Check out the following short video. A car that was lowered so extremely that everything grinds and creaks. And in general we don't have to talk about the drivability of this bucket.
But parking is not the biggest problem. Much more fatal consequences can have such an extreme camber setting when cornering. Because of the increased fall, the footprint of the tire is reduced whereby much less lateral forces can be transmitted. All in all, lowering the tuning is inevitable, but your car after the lowering as Hellafail then something went awfully wrong as we find.
