      While yes the show is obviously staged in controlled conditions, the premise is not all that far from the reality in SoCal (at least in the late 80s/early 90s). Folks would meet up at a parking lot...

      Probably the same "idiots" that prefer cars that have track worthy driving dynamics, even though they spend all of their time commuting. By your logic everyone should be driving a base Camry.

      Well like I said, it is not double wishbone, which you seem to be calling "true IRS". By the definition above any suspension with an anti-roll bar is not independent, nor any mac-strut with a bad...

      The torque tube rear on the Golf 1/2/3/4 is also IRS. A beam suspension is what was under the K-cars. Not the same as double wishbone, but it has some (IMO) sophisticated passive rear steer...

      Yep - the suspension is pretty much bottomed out in compression on that banked turn.

      Still digging the car, but not expecting to be able to get it.
