Really, rally cars as a general rule do not typically have particularly tall suspensions in most cases. The top cars have a ton of droop, but don't actually sit very tall standing still. Rally isn't rock-crawling (usually) and taller cars don't handle as well, on the road or on stages.

Fun fact - real rock crawlers are actually more interested in droop than anything else. They might have ground clearance, but the suspension goes down a lot more than it goes up.

Back to your regularly scheduled thread.

yeah, wasn't suggesting otherwise - just that rally cars don't need the ground clearance that rock-crawlers do. :)

We used wobble bolts to mount our snows on the Fiat and never had a problem.
