Sure is. What is the pont of it? All I see it doing is making the car hard to drive and putting a lot of stress on joints. I know the kart guys use it to jack weight around but why do cars with active suspension need that much?

LOL. Well, I guess this is another thing, like caster, that has to be tuned to "driver comfort". Thankfully it can be changed with wheel offsets no problem. No one tell my driver. I go by size of eyeballs.
