It's a little more complicated than that :-)

Since I do both track time and 12 Autocrosses per year....Many autocrossers prefer a tad of oversteer so we can rotate the car AS needed. Much tougher to drive at the limit in the higher speed corners but once perfected a blast....That's how my 98 is set up....

Now at the track everything changes...For me I like to dial in a fair amount of understeer...Your speeds are much higher and the car ends up being more forgiving near its limits...especially when you enter a corner too hot...
The key for me is my completly adjustable suspension.....I can dial in more or less understeer at will....

YMMV

i know that it is optimum to have a neutral car but which does everyone prefer their car to have a little more understeer or oversteer. personally i think a little understeer would be a little more friendly and easier to control but i could be wrong. interested in replies
