I removed all the licence plates, cranes and some buildings/trees, also cleaned up the rooftop asphalt. Eyelids (eyelid) are on the first pic and second pic.

I'm going to say that sway bars aren't gonna be your best bet at getting rid of understeer. From my understanding and from what I've been told by a number of professionals is that sway bars on our cars (e46 BMW's) are better used to help get the power down to the ground earlier. They do this by better transfering the weight through a turn from front wheels to the to rear as the turn is being exited. Thus by having the weight transfered to the rear allows you to get on the power quicker and "rotate" the rear end faster.

If you want to get rid of understeer without affecting or modifing suspension components such as spring rates and shock settings get some wider front tires. The bigger the contact patch up front the less understeer.

And don't argue with me Ryan either or I'll kill you.

i'm one infraction away from getting banned I get drunk sometimes and make fun of the OT people This forum is like every other one on the net. They need sponsors to make money, and a few members are closely tied in with them. (Mods) I've just learned to shut up or get banned.
