It will suck, may even get wheel hop on the front end in a corner like a Rail, pushing out.....

I do shocks if it is street driven.... RB

It will be fine in a straight line

Trying to power through a turn would be highly unpredictable; if the turn is very smooth it will oversteer, if the front wheels get bouncing you'll understeer right into the curb
