...a modified suspension (springs, shocks, bars, bushings, camber, 17's, good tires) E30 M3 could approach the 1g mark. I remember a long time ago seeing an article on a Jackson Racing modified late '80's CRX that could do 1g.


Very, very tire dependent as mentioned. And on the street, you really don't get super high lateral gs very often. I had my AP-22 (www.race-technology.com) set to read lateral g when I came across a buddy in his S2000. He took off and I was only hitting into the .7s average for 1 sec or more at speeds I felt comfortable with achieving on back roads. I'll have to play around with it some more.
