Rocket Bunny curiosity question

Who did it? Was it worth it? Would you do it again?

I had to Google "rocket bunny" and it took me to aero kits for cars. Is that what you're talking about?

Maybe okay on a Golf-R but rear is too wide for a FWD.

Most of the time these are project cars.
Used as promotion and sometimes returned to stock and sold.
This kit would be a hard daily driver but some might like it.
Nice race car look but there are others mods you can do for looks and still keep DD

Not sure it can be returned to stock. Unless someone wants a car with the rear fender arches cut out.

Agree that something like this can't really be daily driven...at least not at this height without air ride. The car would just get hammered and it'll look like hell after some real miles.

There was a time attack car built for SEMA last year with this kit. I saw that it ran for one event. I haven't heard if it since.

I remember when 96% of cars at sema had a rocket bunny kit on it. Made all the ones that didn't really stand out, in a good way.

On this car agree about the fenders.
I was suggesting a car like New German Performance, which was stripped and later returned to stock.
