What scrapes first?

When cornering really hard, what touches down first?

Floorboards scrape first. The pipe only hits if I encounter a significant dip or bump in the road in a corner. If your pipes are always the first to scrape you might need a rear shock adjustment. The pipe hitting is much more dangerous. The boards flex up and away but the pipe being a rigid attachment is more likely to unweight the wheel and result in a loss of rear wheel traction.
