GTV 916 3.0l handling setup
I know there are many threads on handling and set up, but my question is slightly different.
I have the 916 3.0l. It has Koni yellow sport shocks all round, PowerFlexed rear complete, Q2, Alfaholics handling kit and sticky tyres.
Yesterday I made two adjustments that (unless I am going completely mad) seem to me to make turn in less positive or less sharp. Firstly, I increased the negative camber slightly on the front wheels, to about - 1° 20'either side (it was already that on one side but not on the other). Secondly, I dropped the rear Konis and adjusted them from the softest setting to the medium setting.
Now my GTV feels slightly more reluctant to turn in, it's almost as if I have to put on more lock to get it to tuck the nose into the corner properly. It's not a massive difference, but I can feel it. Yet I was told by someone from a well-known UK Alfa specialist that stiffening up the rear would improve body control and get better results.
What does everyone think? Does this make sense? How is this explained?
Thanks in advance
