No more crazy than putting it infront of a 10bolt rear end.

Don't believe a 115 mph air boat. I have never seen one that would stay on the surface much above 70mph. You see the hull is really an airfoil and if you want to really hurt yourself, just keep the hammer down and it will do whatever any airfoil will do when there is enough wind speed and no controls. I have been in an airboat with a 300 HP Lycoming engine with a variable pitch, 3 bladed prop capable of moving an airplane up to 250 MPH, and it was super dangerous after getting up on the grass above half throttle. Now if there were aileron and elevator controls to go with the rudders, you might have a short lived death wish flying 1-2 feet off the surface. I think it will literally crash before reaching 115MPH.

LOL killerformula, my car actually does have that problem, the drivers side is 3/4 inch higher than the passenger side. I think its my lower control arms, they seem to be bent. Guess I got some Lakewood lemons...

Ya that "airboat" would definitely see a lot more air then water at 115 mph. My father worked for a few boat companies as a designer and i can say that at 80 to 90 mph in a v shape hull is kinda scary let alone a top pushing motor on a flat bottom boat. Can you say "crazy ****"

my car already has subframe connectors, and every other suspension component that could possibly be added to it, it's basically maxed out. I just don't know what went wrong, but I think I'll have to claim warranty or have the installer replace it
