Re: Tires causing torque-steer
It's been almost nine yearrs since university, but I would contradict. The
unqual diameter may help when halfshafts are running at static height, ie.
the angles through the CV joint/driveshaft are apprx. 90 deg. Once the
suspension compresses/rebounds, the drive angles on left/right are not
equal due to unequal length. This is why god keeps Audis engines
north-south oriented (except for the A3 and the unforgettable 50). There
is a solution to this. Spring/shocks/anti-roll bars to make it ride like a
97 A4 1.8T quattro - fair torque - steers in the snow
89 911 3.2 Carrera - torque steer in the rear ???
93 Birel 100cc, no torque - no torque steer - 100mph lunacy
