i did let my car idle after runs for about a minute. still great tips.

and dmax, afaik, raising front tire pressure relative to the rear will introduce even more understeer. it wasnt that bad.

Didn't mean to insult your intelligence.

Sorry to hear about the wheel bearings. I hope it's the fronts, for your sake, if you DIY them.

Getting some more camber up front will make a noticeable difference. Depending on how much you squeeze out of it from knocking the pins out, you may want to dial the toe back a little to save the tires some wear.
