anyone experience the front end diving and scraping the plastic while driving hard? I will have to record some of my driving but while in the hills of Laguna Beach, up and down the " Top of the World".. driving the car pretty hard the front end scraped like 6 times while braking hard into corners.. happened a lot while going down hill braking hard and hitting a corner..

I will have to record some driving..

This car is so much fun.

Sports Sedan VS. Sports car might be the answer. I believe it is meant to be a touring car VS a track car. Just my impression. I could be wrong.

Remove the lower bumper front and rear and beat the crap out of that car I'm jealous of you . Then again I don't own a Karma and I don't think my customers would appreciate getting back the car all torn up . But seriously I haven't seen that happen only complaints I get it the car is too low and when they park the car they roll over the parking stop and mash up the lower spoiler and bumper I tell them don't park so close .

Never had this issue with ours. I've noticed that it cannot handle the dips as well as our E class, but like MArkansas says, its not a track car. Slow down, enjoy, don't stab the brakes. Ever try Hill2? That should help a lot.

Making a 90 degree turn to the left off a main thoroughfare with an average crown, onto a slight uphill entry to a shopping mall access road, the front end scrapes. This is where the crown ends and the uphill starts. As slow as I can go...it scrapes. makes the clear bra hang in pieces at the scrape point.

Sounds like Fisker needs to install the system Lamborghini has you push a button the the whole car rises when you need to go over speed bumps or dips in the road .

And the Karma would become the first $100K car to sport such a system...

My CLS has it already and it's 100k
My business partber has the E550 65k and it has the adjustable suspension.[hr]
Range rover has it too..

Never scratched anything, and we have a lot of speed bumps over here. Taking it slow is the best approach.

Adding adjustable suspension to the car will add even more weight.

I thought those cars had full air suspension like my MB GL450. I believe the Lambo has a conventional suspension like the Karma and adds optional parts to lift the front end only.

I've got a few scraps of the clear bra hanging due to scraping too. Generally going slower and taking it easier is the solution.
