    I don't expect everyone to try this. Only because i don't want everyone crashing.

    People in the bay area know 17... and this is where all my test are preformed for handling.

    unless you know hicks.. but at low speeds, it requires too much turning of the wheel (two handed)

    It's simple. I'm a left hand dominant driver.

    So, i hold on with my right? where? the seat.

    I learned that most of the bounce in the car is actually in the seat. If you reach your hand through... be careful.. and grab the bottom of the seat.. it gives you a whole new feel for what the car is doing. It makes the tipping sensation almost go away.. and you can feel suspension movement... i'm serious! Corners become much more steady, as the car leans, but your stearing is no longer jerky as the prius wobbles.

    give it a try.. or call me crazy.. i don't mind. :ph34r:

    I'd never call you crazy even if your "stearning" was Jearky as the Prius Wobbles.
