There will be a high twisting force generated by the wheels spinning....nothing loose in the suspension area or pivot balls?

Like I mention, I need to win a lottery ticket to be able to burn those guys with my Mazda 6 (as if I could).

Hey, that's a very good excuse for any mistakes in driving you make.

Anyway, it would be a good cover to not alert the fans in Amsterdam airport of your arrival - could turn nasty, otherwise

I thought so too until crashed_1 pointed that out to me. True enough I went home to grind those dimples away and the "jump" went away.

I think it is because the dogbones are free to move in the lateral position. And because the dogbone can sit in the dimple or sit elsewhere in the outdrive, there is a difference in play and makes for the "jump".
