you ever driven one of those things??? I do think they are inherently unsafe :)

Back on point, funny, the ride height goes up and the fires go away.

Has anyone confirmed that the new shielding made it into general production?
As every car that was already produced received it, there's no reason to think that every new car has it too. (Even though my thought is that the two road debris fires had more to do with bad luck than bad design).

Once 5.9 was released ride height went back to almost the previous number. I doubt the 10mm or so difference actually does anything.
