Hasnít been an issue! 😂😂😂🏁 But literally besides inducing drifts I never experience any. Car turns in whenever I ask it to, will turn in oversteer just fine, mid corner as well. Ran 285/225 and now 285/235 Stock sways and KWv3

That’s a great set of pics. The passenger’s expression says, “Code Brown!”

Love the expression on the passenger's face....Can't tell if its a "yehaa" or an "Oh my god!".....

What is the red block that appears to be attached to the windshield wiper(s)?

You can't compare stock w/ modified, all 993 stock have an inherent understeer character. That's just the way they are designed. and stock wide bodies understeer more than stock narrow, it's just basic physics

yeah of course. Was kidding around a bit but also had heard this and that about tires and widebody understeers. Iíve never gotten any and the only suspension change is the KW. Guess I was assuming people were having problems with this.

Beyond car setup, I have to think this also demonstrates the way in which driving technique can affect oversteer. Love the pics!

Great photos for sure!

I choose to believe the passenger is enjoying this...

I just keep thinking how much I'd like to have a photo of me doing that in my car at the track! I know there were some great photo moments at my last event, but alas, the only pics I got make it look like I'm just cruisin' along....

Somewhat related. I call this one "too much oversteer."

And for the record, I'm the panicked instructor in the right seat with another PCA "instructor" behind the wheel who shall not be named

Think this should turn into a track photo thread. Maybe inspire some people to drive them some more 😂

Ask and you shall receive. They don't seem to catch the oversteer moments, but they do see me three wheeling...
