    i dont think the design of the crosswind can handle a powerful engine.. buti sana if ma.improve pa ang suspension, like coil springs and ma.remedyohan ang bodyroll pra mas stable sa curves.. ang coment ko lng sa sportivo is, parang matutumba pg sa curve.. nilagyan ko na ng stabilizer, but still may bodyroll pa rin.. i find it uncomfy.. nakakatakot magcurve at high speeds..

    A stabilizer isn't much help. You could upgrade the shock absorbers to stiffer items to lessen body roll.

    Part of it is also the high center of gravity of the Sportivo. Since it is taller than other Crosswinds and rides on fat tires, all those 1.9 tons of mass are far off the ground. Lower it about 2-3 inches and stiffen the shocks and it should feel better without riding much worse.

    sir niky, how about changing the tires to a more wider width? would it help in it's stability?

    Wider, just a bit. The big problem is the motion of the body itself. You can upgrade to better, stickier tires, but this just makes the car stick better... body roll is still present, and still dangerous because the suspension design means that the wheels will tend to buckle under the car in a corner.

    The best way to make it handle better, really, is to give it the same size wheels and tires as the regular Crosswind and to lower it to the same height.

    ^or drive slower :D jk

    have the same experience with our sportivo, mejo mahirap nga sa matulin at sharp na likuan so no choice but to slow down lalo na pag basa(mas madulas ang off-road tires pag wet surface, tama po ba?)

    d ba mawawala warranty ng sasakyan pag pinalitan ung gulong and ni lower ng ung ride height?

    so, among the mods... considering mataas ang sportivo and other tire concerns, would it be better to choose a smaller one.

    just like yung bagong labas na limited edition? XTi or Sportivo?
    same engine specs (meaning same performance, speed, acceleration?)

    so which is which... i'm still choosing on which will i buy...

    The XTi is the one with the Sportivo accessories but the XTi ride height, right? It's probably a better choice.

    You can't just change to a smaller tire, you need to lower the vehicle, too. A tall vehicle on skinny tires is dangerous.

    Yup, off-road tires are very slippery in the wet, but most truck tires are, anyway. Most AUVs come on hard compound tires which last a long time, but give very little in terms of braking grip.

    mhelskie has a good point. The Crosswind wasn't built to be driven fast. There's too much understeer and positive camber built into the suspension geometry for it to be safe. The only reason you see a lot of Everests turning turtle and Fortuners spinning out is that they're so powerful that their drivers often exceed the limites of their tires and suspension. The Crosswind? Only thing you see them doing is running into things under braking (damn *%&$& brakes!).

    palit tayo ng XTO ko joke


    you cannot get the height of XTO why kasi naka lift ang body ng XTRM,XUV,Sportibo ng +-2inch. thats why sportivo can used 235/70r15 tires while xto can upgrade only up to 215/70r15.

    load plus can help only not to drop yun likod if loaded

    for me mas masarap talaga drive yun xto kesa XUV kahit pa A/T :peace:
