Re: BA XT Drivability
It depends on the road. I understand stiffer sidewalls will cause greater loadings on the suspension, and this provide more "flat out" corner speed. However the roads I use are quite bumpy, and with 31psi in the tyres, the car jumps and thumps over them (I have tried it), with the lower tyre pressure (they're not flat by anymeans - they're 40k old and still have a heap of tread left so tyre wear's no problem) more tyre is on the road, it also reduces understeer I've found (a problem past falcon's have suffered more so). In short, I guess it's up to personal preference, and I'd prefer to let the tyres do some of the suspension's work. Thought the car was going to rattle it's self apart with 31 psi! Also, I noticed you guy's have 17's or 18's fitted, mine are the stock 60 series 16's. After having an EL xr6 with 16's, the ride and handling of the BA's are unreal. As for the question, why don't you take an xt for a drive and experience it for yourself?
