  1. Hi All, Yes thanks, As suspension and handling has always been of more interest to me than engine power etc, I went back to some test driving and understanding what suspension I have here and how it works. Basically start with the book settings then go my own way and make adjustments, toe, tyre pressures & damper adjustments until the car works properly. I have now transformed the car from one that really frightened me to drive to one I can race around and stay on the road ! This car had a lot of expensive suspension stuff put on by its owner, including replacing the rubber with spherical rod ends and now is a harder ride than a standard car however it was not set up correctly in my view. Re tyres, it has Vredestein 155 x 15 , I haven`t tried any other make yet which might work better ? but what I am pretty sure of is if you want your car to handle well and predictably do not mix and match different makes and quality tyres. So more improvement i`m sure when I next get my hands on this one, more driving and finer adjustments as I get used to it.
  2. Hi Thanks, but this one has been converted to all new stuff including Rose Joints , no play there,!!
  3. Hi All, I have a 1962 S2, is it possible that you can let me have what you think works best for suspension and steering settings please, at the moment the car frightens me because I can not drive it in a straight line, it wanders and very little input into the steering makes it weave, then I correct and it goes to far etc, Everything is rebuilt, no loose wheels etc, I think it is just setup ?? or diff mounting too flexible. Hard tyre pressures did improve it. Any help would be appreciated,
