A solid 1-inch bar with a rating of 542 pounds was put in place. The stiffer rate on this bar also helped keep the car flat allowing Licata to shave off another 0.16 second from the previous test. Licata reported that the car felt a little harsh and really got upset when the road got bumpy in the turn around area of the test facility.
