Default Lateral G/Skidpad?

Anyone got numbers for a 92-95 SE & SSE/i for handling/grip?

Hmmmm....I've got Gtech data around here somewhere. Forgot what it was, but it was before my new tires and suspension repairs.

I recall lateral G'* are actually better on the SSEi than most F-bodies. No kidding on that.

IRS vs Live axle...

Well i wanna see published numbers, i know many people have old magazines. Skidpad data is a 300ft diameter skidpad, you can get more i you're on a differen't course.

But what you've hit would be nice to see. I won't touch it with my tires i'm sure but eh... This is a fun lil box to play with.

Keep in mind my Gtech never gave me valid numbers until I went through a complete hot/cold temp calibration on it.

I just noticed my mom'* 1993 Park Ultra has the same sway-bars as my 1992 SE (FE2) even though the Park has the RPO code FE1. I also looked at the FE1 rear sway bar on my old 1994 SLE and it is smaller than my mom'* 1993 FE1 Park.

Dolt. You've seriously crossed the ******* line this time you ******* bastard. That'* really shitty of you, you worthless bag of ****. Now I'm going to have to have DOLT added to the word censor for the site, and make it read "Jason" every time you type it.

Back on topic.......

.81? Geez. I have my Gtech Pro throw a warning at .75, but that'* only to keep me honest when it'* WET outside. That had to be with shitty stock tires.
