Saw that happen to a BMW at an autocross years ago. Combine Kuhmo V710's with too soft a spring rate and way too abrupt a transition = he picked up two wheels 2' or more in the air right in front of the corner I was working.

Needless to say, we all cursed, ran, and checked our drawers in no specific order.

2007 Phantom Purple hatch; JBR RMM/busihgs/shifter plate, Koni STR.t's, Michelin Pilot AS3's, Spin on oil filter conversion, stubby antenna, Kenwood KDC-X997 hu + Sundown Audio SA12 + Infinity speakers + JL 320.4 amp, debadged and door edge guards removed, Lamin-X + indy fog mod, aluminum AC knobs, DIY SRI, TRS 5000K HIDs, more coming.
