maybe..... buts its not what it used to be like

lost the back end at 70 on a dipping curve (end of straight at knockhill).... that was due to braking too late and basically having the car unbalanced for the corner...

Another corner just made the arse pop out everytime....

I went off 3 times, fee once, dale once... all in the same car.... all on the same corner. I'm pretty sure i was on part throttle (with plate diff) so should not be doing that...

I need to spend a bit of time getting its handling sorted out... but you need a running engine to help do that

What ARB's are you running? Ride height?


i have whiteline front are rear ARBs, ride height im not sure but its not adjustable. probably something like 40mm lower than stock.

its not the inside wheel coming off the ground as it does it in slower corners as well. I think its just a corsa thing as the rear beam is only being stopped flexing side to side by the dampers.

both my rear bearings are brand new as of 3 weeks ago. changed rear beam, bushes, dampers, springs, and bearings all on the back before i went to the nurburgring, didnt make a difference.
