True. Very true. Not everyone drives at the limits.
However, I come from a A1 & A2 VW background. As many of you
know, these VW's lift the inside rear wheel without too much
provocation and short of 9/10ths. That's just the nature of
the design. The point is, it does not take extreme driving
near the limits to lift the inside rear wheel on all cars.
Heck, I bet I have lifted the inside rear wheel while parallel
parking a GTI ;-)
I assume the rear suspension design of my Type 44 makes
lifting the inside rear wheel much less likely compared to a
VW GTI. But it must still get lightly loaded short of the
limit. My question concerned the statement that the rear
stabilizer bar does little once the inside rear wheel is
light. Is that statement true and why?
BTW, I told you my last post sounded "torsen-esque" :-(
