You forget to add teh tore up rear axels, bent TEIN suspension in the back right.. and a real SORE neck.. =) other then those im alive and kicking.. but sube less now.. a word of advice guys.. make sure you know what ur doing with a 20MM sway bar in back... even with a tweaked out suspension like mine. (cusco front strut, rear strut, TEIN HA coilover, TE37 17x7.5 rims..) u still loose control @ 40mph

Post danger at stevenson

I just saw bluesaints car...be very careful going off 880 at stevenson, his suspension is now positive camber at the rear, both sides. the front right fender is tweaked and so is the radiator frame, so the hood does not open. the trunk is tweaked and his lightweight wheels are lighter where they were ground off...other than that he is ready to rally.

Having life is always better than not having a car.

Not knowing this ramp as I'm from the other side of the country, I'm curious on how a setup like yours can lose it...at 40mph.

What kind of tires were you running?

Was it a wet road?

I'm starting to see in a few auto-xes with the subies that by eliminating the body roll with springs/struts, because of the semi-lightness of these cars, you're not transfering weight properly to the outside tires on a turn.

Also, it seems as if the stiffer suspension is eliminating the Passive Rear Wheel Steering by being too stif and not allowing the left/right rear to "turn".

I have a 20mm on stock suspension and I can keep up with the fastest of the cars. (except some wickedly fast SCCA SS Cars). The Cars with the stiffer/tweaked suspension are not as lucky.

And I'm also starting to see a trend on more of the guys with a tweaked suspension losing it more so than the guys without.

Hmmm...

Didn't one of his tire let go and caused him to spun out? His setup could go at least 70mph on that off ramp.
