So, in relation to another thread, Do you have to give up forward traction for side bite and visa versa? The last we ran our car, it was okay going in but stayed so loose as to almost lose it, but the car wouldn't slide through the center. It would always stop sliding and set to early. I then would drive back up the track to the next groove and ready for the next corner. But forward bite was nil. I could get no more than 1/2 throttle with out haveing to turn right to catch the rear. Even as much as I would actually blip the throttle to get the rear around rather than roll out of the throttle and wait for it. I'm thinking the car has to much side bite and not enough forward bite. Sound right?
