Someone mentioned to me this weekend the car was about to undergo the AWD conversion, and would be that way for finals/SLB... (not official word though)

I am pretty sure that in TA1 I was approaching the kink at 143, so no reason to expect it would be any less in the new car with no issues.


Jon
Sounds about right. You can here in the video where I just grab 6th for a second and where I was shifting in 5th is about 140-144.

However.. I think that because it's flat, and we can use as much of the curbing as we want on the stock suspension it makes the kink a much different corner. I was surprised that even in 2006 we were not seeing the same speeds through the kink in TA1.

Jon
I think with how stiff most of the Unlimited cars are to handle the high g grip the car gets too upset from hitting curbing. You can see where I clipped a couple on the inside and man did it upset the car. I think Mark was hitting something like 1.6 gs.

A softer suspension setup would allow you to pinch off that high speed kink without upsetting the car but grip everywhere else would likely suffer. I guess it's all a balancing act really.
