And finally on the 8th page, the most pertinent question (rhetoric
) is asked.
Have a vehicle that can generate enough lateral grip to transfer its entire weight to the outside tires and droop travel does not freaking matter! Also, it really is amazing how a thread on suspension went on for so long with no talk of weight transfer.
Also, discussing how one suspension setup is better than another without full knowledge of the track surface is just...
One set of compromises for a particular track might not work for another. To distill it down, one must juggle ultimate steady-state grip over flat surfaces with that over bump surfaces.
So we should change the thread title to "cheap coilvers are good for smooth tracks".
