    Hi guys

    Just wondering I tried this combo last night and found the vw to understeer loads, I know obviously these are front wheel drive,

    However any advice on tuning this that will help is greatly appreciated.

    Hopefully someone will be able to help you, I must admit I found the Golf pretty good to drive only increased rear df to 5 and that worked well. But a setup expert will no doubt tell you more.
    You're in mate:thumbsup:

    I'm probably the last person you want advice from, but if you're understeering out of the corner, you're too aggressive with the throttle IMO. You might want to try playing with the power diff and preload, but I'd say it won't change a lot.

    Can't really imagine anyone understeering into the corner with these ;)

    Tentatively in. I should be able to make it.

    As for under-steering....Well, these are FWD, you can't drive them like RWD.
    Easy on the throttle on exit, and late-apex every corner in sight, that usually helps.
    Though granted, I haven't actually tried them at Laguna yet.
