I have two minis that both have the same 4.5" x 10" wheels with the same tyres and the same caster at 3.5 degrees and the same camber at just under .5 degrees negative front and neutral at the rear. Both cars have about 3/16" total toe in on the rear which is a bit much, both are standard ride height and both have the same shocks on the same setting and you guessed it both have the same 1/16" toe out front tracking.
One car corners like its on rails, super predictable with no lift off oversteer but the other when pushed only half as hard feels like the back tyre wants to tuck under and the car feels like it wants to swap ends, lifting the throttle just a bit gives instant oversteer. The turn in needs correcting mid bend.
Everything measures up OK, wheelbase etc. The tyre pressures are correct and all bushes are A1 and everything is tight. I have even swapped the wheels around but no change. Everything checks out with the string around the wheels and the only thing I have not 100% verified is the rear tracking from the center line.
Could that be why it tries to kill me or an I missing something else and how can I reduce lift off oversteer other than by slowing down and learning the bends first, that said the other car is very neutral with no oversteer so how can I fix it ?
The rubber doughnuts are all good and not squashed and both cars have solid mounted front subframes.
Does too much rear toe in have an effect other than wearing the tyres out quicker ?
