Mines, sort of in bits :rolleyes:

Cheers,

Right had a bit of a measuring mins and max.

got a variation of plus minus 2mm fully loaded to unloaded (car on blocks to car being stood on got some funny looks from my wife believe me!!)

switched to inline axles (surely i should be drinking rather than doing this on a saturday night!!) this makes it 3mm longer give or take a metric smidgen

so Wayne after your experiment you can now detail the handling characteristics of how it should handle during a jump and during being stood on by a marshal:p
I think you need a beer, not many people will stand on their own car for the sake of science.:wtf:
