<< ... hey, my old 1978 Audi Fox would lift the inside rear wheel in hard
cornering ... IME that was the only time you had the possibility of getting
the car into an oversteer situation.  :-)  Gotta love a stiff chassis!  I
hear that other VW models did the same thing. >>

Yes, they did! It was fun watching them all do that in the old Rabbit Cup
races while bump drafting (and punting each other). This not to be confused
with the CART (real Indy...er "champ" cars) cars lifting the inside front
going down the corkscrew (!) or a certain vintage 911 lifting the outside
front exiting the corkscrew. Makes one wonder if the Auto Union GP car will
lift any wheels next August ;-)
