In Reply to: How can I decrease UNDERSTEER? posted by Jonathan on June 12, 2000 at 10:22:08:
The following info may be of some help:
If the data is correct, it seems to contradict the belief that BMW changed the 96+ to increase U/S. It shouldn't be too hard to find a used 96+ rear bar and I doubt if tech inspection will be able to tell the difference in 1mm.
Are the LTW wheels 7.5 / 8.5? If so, you could run 235 front / 245 rear.
WRT your front shocks; to reduce U/S, you want to reduce front roll stiffness. If nothing else, your shocks are probably helping.
: 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.
