  1. Twitchy rear end

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Ive decided that, as the title suggests, the rear end is a little bit too happy to step out in the JTS. Particularly so in the wet. There dont seem to be any concerns in the dry. It happened once by accident and ive since then took 2or3 opportunities on known roundabouts to test the handling...

    Hi, I changed my tyres on my s2 spider a couple of week ago from some very old 165HR14's to Uniroyal Rain Expert 185x70R14's. While the car looks nicer with the fatter tyre, I find the steering or feeling of the car is has been changed. With the 165HR14's, the steering was very direct &...

  8. Twitchy Handling and uneven ride height

    Alfa 155
    Hi Over the last few weeks the handling has become more twitchy, the 155 is upset by imperfections in the road and can be thrown of course and she pulls to the left under acceleration (not a lot but noticable). I have lowered the tyre pressures (From 34/36 to 31/33 ) and this helped but it has...
