In actuality, the rear suspension issue didn't change the day's result. Unfortunately, Harris Hill has gotten too bumpy to be used to setup a racecar in my opinion. It was definitely bumpy in December when I visited in the RX-8, but it has gotten worse and I am convinced I would have destroyed the car if I had run my whole test plan Saturday. On the lap before the suspension failed, I had pretty much decided that I was putting the car back on the trailer instead of running through any spring/damper changes. It really is unfortunate...H2R has a fun layout and is run by great people. I really enjoy driving the track and the track management is so easy-going and fantastic to work with. There are still many things that the track can be used for, but, for me, setting up a racecar with 2.3+hz natural frequency suspension front and rear isn't one of them.
