Here's one of mine from yesterday. 1st time out with the softer springs.

By bye understeer, hello oversteer and body roll. (watch the top of the windsheild frame to get an idea of the amount of body roll)

450F 300R. Balljoint rates are 175F and 185R. I'm thinking about a front swaybar but I'm afraid it will bring my understeer back.

So is that airport closed? Or do they close it just for your autocrosses? And do you get tired of long, slalomy courses out and back?
