If you want to run soft springs/lots of chassis roll but have problems with bottoming throughout the high speed corners, raise the ride height.

actualy you are totaly wrong on low grip surfaces with high speed corners this works in theory raising the ride height will only change your grip level by lowering it, if you used a plastic spacer instead of an o ring yes it would have an abrupt effect such as a bump stop.I am only talking about 1 o ring and i have aided in winning 4 national events so whats your story,and if you were riding curbs or the biggest bumps you wouldnt use and o ring and we are talking about a smooth surface such as asphalt with a touring car.

I'm not interested in an argument. You do what you think is right, I'll do what I know is right.
