    hey, is there anyway to reduce the understeer from this car. i used to get less understeer in my old corsa.

    its got bilstein shocks and springs already, and 225-40-17 on and back

    your running a heavy engine up front so you will always have some under steer it was designed into the car to make them safer and more dosile for normal drivers....it needs to be low and stiff and if you loose a little grip on the back end this also helps..m3 struts and hubs also help...

    yes when the tyres are sorted
    the M3 underbody X brace (cross brace) is supposed to make a noticeable improvement.

    i have a 1999 mtec and all i have done is front powerflex bushes and fitted bridgestone potenza re050 tyres, no understeer at all, i drove a mates with shitty tyres on and it was a right pig.
