Re: [DML] Front Ride Height Intentions - Documented Proof



I have heard that too. Among other reasons like: 
1. bumper height requirements
2. headlight height requirements
3. cheep springs were used to save money
4. they just screwed up & made up the reasons in #1 & #2 above
(http://www.projectvixen.com/dmcforum-archive/msg26772.html)
5. better handling that the Lotus so Chaplan mucked it up (like mentioned in my
prior email and here: http://www.projectvixen.com/dmcnews-archive/msg25299.html
and more here
http://www.projectvixen.com/dmcnews-archive/msg25173.html )

What I want to know may be trivial to some but I just want to know the truth as
the "why" the height was raised. And this is the first physical proof I have seen
that the intent was for the car to be lower than the stock high nose.

Has anyone seen any proof as to the "why"?

I hope this doesn't screw up you concours competitors. Are the rules based on how
they actually left the factory or how they should have left the factory? Because
it is obviously not the creators intent to be nose high.

They did it to meet US headlamp positioning requirements.  The lights would
have been out of spec without raising the front end.  The Esprit did not
have this problem, as it has pop-up headlamps that raise to an acceptable
height.
