I have a 98 1.6 astra that can easily be provoked into going sideways.
Before i had a 95 1.4 that held the road really well, no under steer even when being silly and never any over steer. The newer astra will under steer at moderate speeds and when you lift off the throttle, wham! Over steer.
It seems to only do it under 30mph but is twitchy at higher speeds. It has decent tyres on the front and crap ones to the rear. The cars done 110k miles.
I remember the old car seemed like new when i put new dampers on it, could the problem be with my dampers? I've noticed that the newer astra turns in quicker-then has less grip. Could all this be down to the steering geometry being different?
This may only happen around right hander's. For me there are no left hander's around where you can get away with a spin out.
This problem is really bugging me and is stopping me from taking the long way home or the twisty A roads when i go out, Please help.
