Hi people, I am been driving my Smart Pure (original no mod) for about 5 weeks but yesterday was the firs time that I feel scare driving it on highway crosswind. I not sure how strong the crosswind was, but I drove this highway before at the same normal (65 MPH) and do not felt this way. The Smart start feeling like have no dead center steering wheel position. The small distance between front to rear wheels need a very careful crosswind correction when driving, but the main problem yesterday was the no dead center feeling on my hands. It was a bad time not for the cross wind itself but the no dead center feedback. I guess the car was floating or loosing down force into the wind and this cause the problem or the hot weather. Yesterday was a hot day here in Puerto Rico and this does not help neither. Fortunately I have no problem driving back at night the same highway to home. At night the Smart felt very well driving the same speed and more... ;).
After this, I want to start thinking more serious about lowering the center of gravity and use and aftermarket body kit that help with this. The main problem is that this info is not the strong selling point of body kits dealers and you usually have no idea when buying until you have it installed. OUCH :( . Any suggestion is welcome.
PS No alcohol on my blood... not a drinking driver.
