Default How much does a AM IFE help a C1?

When I restromoded my 57, I replaced the OEM front end with a Fat Man Independent front end and slightly larger radials.
I don't wish to severely test the change in handling but I wonder how much it actually helps.
(The last time I tested cornering, I almost put an Avante into a guard rail, I don't want to test my Vette.)

You replaced the OEM IFS with a Fatman fab IFS and you're afraid to test it around a corner? Try it in a large empty parking lot.

I also have the FatMan with the stage. Five option......what stage you have will make a big difference in handling. The stage five corners like it’s on rails.
The empty parking lot is a very good idea, you absolutely want to find out what it’s limits are before you need them in an emergency.
