Scott, a little off topic but I was wondering what you thought about this.Almost 8 years later and there's no reason to change one word. At VIR road coarse the 96 Limo, sans the German Shepherd/Wolf Hybrids, could match the lap time of a C5 Corvette. The LT-1 Stroker has something to do with that in addition to the suspension/chassis work and yes I still have that car. Even in Zurich it's a rare one.
I boxed my chassis, welded in some 1 3/4" .090 wall tubing between the rear rails as a 'RMS brace', bolted in DMR bars etc...
one thing that still shocks me is how much the frame still flexes up and down when jacking the front of the car up. when the suspension is unloaded and the chassis is on 4 jack stands, you can visibly see how much flex there is when jacking up the front before the rest of the chassis actually moves. Basically what I'm saying is the front engine cradle sags quite a bit when the chassis is suspended by jack stands.
This makes me wonder what, if any effect this is having on handling when the car is on the road. Not an easy fix, the only way I could think of resolving that issue is tying the front frame rail horns together witn the rest of the chassis via roll cage.
My gut tells me that this problem would only be apparent when the car is sitting on jack stands the way it is now because the jack stands are creating a fulcrum point just behind the engine cradle but I keep wondering if this is something that would affect handling when the car is on the road. What do you think?
