Hydraulics
 
As short as possible:car with hydraulic suspension can be high-performance car?

As short as possible: Yes, depending of coarse on your definition of high performance.

As short as possible:on level of modern muscle(at least).

What kind of hydraulic suspension are we talking about? My friend has a Q45 with a self leveling hydraulic suspension. It handles like a super car! But a west side jumping hydraulic suspension system weights to much for a muscle car.

Air-Bags can be performers, but Hydraulics....eh...thats more for cruisers and stuff. Plus there is 50 sq. ft. or plumbing and hoses and canisters.

Its a Nissan well really an Infinity Q45. Its rear wheel drive with a 6 speed auto, 4.5 liter v8 that puts out over 300 horses and over 320lb-ft. It tops out at 180mph. Its a sleeper for sure! :mwink:

I've seen too many mini-trucks with the bed crammed full of hoses and air-tanks at car-shows... :mwink: Thats got to be a decent amount of extra-weight. Might help with traction, but....

Eh, I don't know.

There comes a point when adding weight for traction becomes pointless, as the weight raises your ET's as much as not hooking up.
