    More rf travel. Less lr travel.
    More left weight. Different spring rates.

    Pretty long list of things can change chassis attitude.

    Please do tell.

    How are you achieving torque thrust vectors without mechanically loading the tires?

    The tires are the only contact with the track surface.

    As a side note, karting is able to reach those dynamic numbers without separate suspensions.
    They effectively teeter as well.

    If you can achieve desired wheel weights in dynamic, bumps and limiters are not needed. Might be what Rumley achieved with his "device".

    I'm saying I can set the rr bars and bury the right quarter panel of the body into the track.

    Does that mean there is more aero downforce?
    I'm not feeling it
