    Improving front end grip

    With the recent turns of bad weather its got me thinking.

    What ways are there to mechanically increase front end grip / traction on the mk4?

    Softer front springs and anti roll bars

    Alkready got rear arb, may invest in whiteline front jobby next year.

    Ive always been a firm believer in adapting to the cars performance but since remap keeping the tc light off in wet / cold conditions has been rather hard

    Front poly bushes and poly caster bushes, Camber adjutment bolts and front camber set right oh and front upper strut brace.

    Also rear camber adjustment plates.

    The difference is amazing!
