the first movement of the actuator pulling back is when the nose is lifted, and the second movement of the actuators pushing out is when the car is dropped to vmax or track mode.

Very cool .. Thanks Quite a bit of movement in the lowering of the car. 1 to 1 ratio I wonder? Would make sense.. one less thing to fail.

Another excellent video. You are going to rank right up there with Tazzyybabyy. Don't give up your day job. Stop listening to Special Ed.

it doesnt look to be 1 to 1 the actuator pushes out further than it retracts.

So inside the actuator is the coil spring that the car rides on in the up position. So when it extends, it internally compresses the spring to coil bind, dropping the car to then ride on the torsion bar.
Probably worth posting this yet again....

The service manual is finally available. I have it, might have the detail you are looking for?
