  1. A Michigan Vehicle Dynamicist says:

    These vehicles are very unstable in high speed turning maneuvers (CG induced roll moments) They suffer from the same accident causes of high CG SUVs.

    Drivers need to better understand vehicle dynamics. All of this can be easily modeled and simulated for online website access providing user access limitations of their vehicle’s performance. Driver’s can be learning how their vehicle operates while saving their lives and the lives of others. The technology is available but nobody is creating an “app”.
