where were you sitting in that prototype? how far from the front wheels? 
how far from the rear wheels? what was the vehicle weight? how much weight 
on the front wheels? on the rear? did you still have pilot induced 
oscillation? was that vehicle fwd? what size/hp motor? turbo?if very high 
hp or turbo, could that have been a contributing factor in the inability to 
steer? (causing too fast a response for the driver to control?) I'll bet me 
and mayf would like to see would be even better....
