My GT500 is my first fast car, I have always owned Ford trucks till now. My suspesion has benn upgraded with Evo Perf lowering package (FRPP spring spring, ect)and race shocks.

Occasionally when I am on the highway and excellerate I lose feel of the ground and it feels like I am floating. What is occuring? Are my wheels slipping? Am I air born? Should I be concerned?

Thanks,

Mike

Yes, very cool.

has that happened to you?

i looking for a more technical answer though. I wonder if the little bumps on the highway have anything to do with it. Some of the highways in Portland, Oregon have lots of tiny bumps and maybe there because we get lots of rain.

Yes, sometimes I'll be shakin alittle after I drive the car, the adrenaline is cool too.

Do you have any aftermarket suspension parts? If so, are they BMR lower control arms? If so, don't drive the car...get under there and check the bushings.:boohoo:

They are Evolution Performance lower control arms, they may be BMR with Evos name on them and I think they have Polyeurathane bushings.

What do you think is happening?

Who invented liquid soap & why?:roller:



As far as I can tell, Liquid Soap was invented by Hendrik Willem Brouwer of Holland, working for Lever Brothers. He received patent number US4065398: Liquid soap
composition. You can read more about this invention at this webpage.

As for why - I can only guess that Lever Brothers saw the potential to increase sales and profits due to the convenience of a soap that could easily be dispensed in public places like public
restrooms, as a better alternative than providing a community bar of soap (do you really want to wash your hands with a bar of soap covered with some stranger's dirt and germs?), and as
a more comfortable alternative to providing powdered soap

In fact, since the invention of liquid soap, there have been a whole lot of patents for equipment that dispenses liquid soap, so the market is obviously there!



How is that?

Evo's LCA's are made by Steeda. They are very good and should not be the problem. It could however be something as simple as a shock absorber adjustment.
