    Default Steering not right !

    Hello peeps

    Been having the problem for a while now

    Chucking the be car into a turn say off roundabout and it don't hold the road properly getting a lot of oversteer...I've had the tracking done about 5 times now

    When it's tracked ..All feels nice and tight for a week...chuck it into a corner and holds the road fine..
    But then after a week feels all sloppy...had the car looked at again today and everything is spot on weird

    I've changed the suspension to coilovers kw v2's...all the bushes are poly ones...new droplinks too

    Can't work it out why it does it...got no knocks or any other noises

    Also just got new front tyres last week when tracking was done

    Any got any ideas as puzzled ?

    Oversteer not understeer - are you sure?

    You should have the best tyres fitted to the rear of the car - this reduces any chance of snap oversteer in poor weather

    Are you hard on the accelerator and then lifting off by any chance?

    It's deffo oversteer
    Car wants to go straight on some comers not even pushing that hard...feels like it's braking away on turning left ?

    Straight on - i.e not turning would be understeer

    And as discussed in another topic, the poorer tyres on the front can lead to understeer (just like here )

    Chances are that it's just your perception, pushing a bit harder after several weeks and thinking it's worse. Or you have el cheapo tyres fitted.

    I've got falken 452 had them before on another car and was really good...

    Just can't work out why once tracked up all feels stiff and can chuck it about...

    But after a week just feels all sloppy and don't hold road right

    When the car starts to understeer again and feels sloppy does it track straight or does it pull to the side when going down a straight road ?
