When 4 up in my son's 107 and going over a speed bump, we get a burning rubber smell. There's no grounding, clunks or other noises, but a definite smell.

Any ideas what it could be. Tyres, bumps stops, shock absorbers?

Any help gratefully received..

Useless info l guess, because l’ve never had 4 people in mine. However the tire pressures are different, slightly higher. Maybe the shocks or springs are warn out as well and can’t cope with the extra weight.
But really l’m guessing.

It will be your tyre rubbing on the arches slightly

+1... maybe because the bump stops are worn or missing.
