Jon, changing T/P is not going to help much at all.... If you would like to remain in A Stock I suggest you ante up for a set of Adj shocks from either Koni, or adj the rear shocks with a firmer bump setting you will decrease the amt of understeer present on the medium to larger radius corners and might allow you to rotate the car easier also. On the tight 180 degree corners you will always have some plow present.....good luck....

: I've got a 95 with LTW wheels and the seems to plow through the corners a bit too much for my liking. Drove a 98 and I could get the tail out just a tad. I'm used to driving my supercharged miata with 195 width tires that can oversteer like a mad dog.

: Isn't there a way to adjust the tire pressure to correct? Or maybe change the tire sizes? I'd rather not spring for a swaybar as I'd like to stay stock class for autocross. I think my front shocks are weak, which might be aggrevating the plowing problem.

: Thanks
