I found the same issues on my first track day,
My style was too on / off. A full fat S3 will always suffer with that style ,
I well and truely cooked my brake with that style.
Never made it change ends though !
No worries, just say the word :)
yea, because as Glen said years ago, R32's front and rear don't change the balance at all, they just up it front and rear.
You need to go proportinally larger on the rear to dial out the understeer.
I can't comment on what sizes will work well, as my FWD platform is SO different, I run 22mm front and 32mm rear. I'd imagine on the 4wd chassis something like 21mm front and 21-23mm rear should change things a fair bit, considering the standard rear is only 14mm
you dont need bolt downs dude, just use the rocker cover from your bam. mine doesnt have bolt downs :)
looks to me like you guys were driving reeaaallly aggressively. lots of lift off oversteer too.
my boss races semi professionally. and always tells me 'slow in, fast out. be smooth. it might seem slower, but i bet your times are lower'
i take his word for it given his experience.
its what i tried to do at castle combe. although my car was a boat (standard suspension), i never understeered, and my tires weren't destroyed at the edges.
If your braking in mid corner , the car is going to lean even more than usual.
If your accelerating in mid corner , this tends to bring the car back Into shape. Like last post said, all braking before the corner. Get a good angle through the corner and slowly start accelerating and full guns by time your at the e d if the corner. Not as must Fun, but better times and easier on the car wear.
Don't get me wrong, I know how to drive, I was just going far too quick for that bend on that lap.
The instructors all put out yellow cones to show where to start turning in which is very handy ;)
