Has nothing to do with downforce. Downforce is an Aero issue. You get down force from spoilers, underbody aero treatment, etc.

HAs more to do with the roll center which is already below ground. If you drop the front a LOT more than the back, and you stand a greater chance of flipping the car around a quick corner or simply losing control.

On non-4-link, shock fronted cars it wasn't as much of an issue as it is with the Strut/4-link combo, which I really have grown to hate in comparison with my '68. the 68 was a LOT more predictable, if not quite as quick on it's tires. But a lot of that could be managed with tires, shocks, and weight management.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
