Did'nt quite do the whole route, but most of it.
Also some gravel/sand around Agalhus/Arniston.



At Arniston, we went past the Cave parking spot, down the other side, to the end of the road.




Look over the roof of the car, you'll see the beacon in the distance:

"lift", surely helped.
The car was not loaded.

I also removed the rear ASB (separate thread), because it was pulling the car down on one side.
I can't feeling any driving difference, but then I don't go that fast into corners anyway.

The car never scraped on that descend, nor return, with 2 adults in the car. The girls decided to walk.

I'm looking to "lift" the car at the back when loaded. I'm thinking to have the springs re-tempered, to see if they become a bit stiffer, for better load carrying ability.
Don't know if the rubber blocks really help a lot.  ???

Also, the AT's must help with grip. Was running at about 1.8 bar.
