yeah. the rack is off. Torque warned me about the rack. I DOES increase fuel consumption and there is alot of wind noise on the highway at 60+ mph. Plus the rack creates a pocket of pressurized air that sticks between your roof and the rack. Somehow this air flow adds extra mass (not weight-but mass) to your car and fucks up the cars center of gravity and balance. Even if you do not have anything on the racks, you will feel the car tilt about 10-20% above normal at tight turns. It also make you feel as if the car is off balance when turning fast and sharp. In otherwords it creates an ANTI-Swaybar effect and steals from the vehicle's stability.
