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.

I've seen too many mini-trucks with the bed crammed full of hoses and air-tanks at car-shows... 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.
