Default Autocrossing with air suspension

Air suspension bounces an awful lot. Just curious...for those more knowledgable than myself...would it be bad for air suspension to go through an autocross? The top speed I expect to hit is 45 mph, maybe less...but I wasn't sure how the air suspension would hold up in really hard turns...whether it would allow the car to touch the ground or could blow a fitting or even destroy the air suspension itself. I just thought to ask because I could go for a WRX or not going at all instead and didn't want to risk the air suspension.

Well your ride looks great. I've done some autocross in mine. Although I used Lowering springs, I Have had a friend run autocross on airbags and well I would not recomend it.

Thanks for the info. Would you think it'd be any better if I switched to individual wheel control so air wouldn't simply shift from one side of the car to the other (for better handling) and maybe got the more sport oriented gas shocks at tirerack.com?
