There has been a lot of talk regarding people's dislike of the R's performance in high performance/autocross conditions. Much of the poor performance can be attributed to the 4C system adjusting the damping rates on each shock independantly, based upon body roll and pitch fore/aft. This results in unpredictable handling, and probably contributes a great deal to the infamous "rear end hop." <p>From what I can tell, 4C utilizes three accelerometers: 1) detects forward/rearward acceleration, 2) detects horizontal acceleration, 3) detects vertical acceleration.<p>So I'd like to pose a couple of questions for those that have experimented with disconnecting the rear accelerometer: does doing so eliminate the 4C chassis setting damping rates (i.e. comfort, sport, and advanced)?<p>If not, has anyone tried disconnecting all three accelerometers to see what happens?<p>If so, then has anyone tried utilizing a capacitor to normalize the 4C's readings of the accelerometer? In other words, the 4C reads that the accelerometer is reporting steady-state inputs, no variations. <p>I think we can all agree that we like the ability to adjust damping rates at the push of a button, but dislike the fact that the vehicle is unpredictable due to the 4C adjusting rates independantly. It would be nice to come to some amiable solution.
