Skid pad at ATCO Raceway in southern New Jersey.
With some of the performance parts and systems still in development, final test results were unavailable. However, we set up an informal skid pad at ATCO Raceway in southern New Jersey to get a feel for the difference made by the new performance springs.
The driver reported reduced body roll and added feedback through the tires. (He also reported being dizzier than normal.)
The real test for all of these pieces will be in the hands of customers who run their vehicles in autocross, rallycross, rally, etc.
Thanks to Carlos Reyes, Kiven Reynolds, and Nicole Spadea for installing the parts. Genuine Subaru Performance
