I decided to stick my mini-cam under the back of the car to see what the suspension is doing during a moderate drive on one of our twisty roads. I find this stuff mesmerising which is why I should never own a Clubman. This is an excerpt.
Youtube Linky

The diameter of the axle shaft gives an idea of the suspension movement. Springs are 450lb/in

Good find. It looks like the RX-7 driver was having fun. Airborne. Soiling his pants, I'm sure.
