Spider bite

At the risk of re-opening an old (but inconclusive?) debate, I've been
starting to push my Type 44 around corners.  I tried the party trick
yesterday evening, but got the apexes completely wrong.  So I had
another go today, albeit in the wet.

I _think_ I've got close to the U-O-U effect described.  I went right to
the limit on a long right-hander and tried the throttle steering trick
I use on the Type 85 Torsen.  The car's reaction was weird - it was a
kind of soft wallow between U-O-U that really felt is if there was no
set direction to the behaviour.  I had to lift and then brake because
of other traffic, but it was an interesting (and new) experience.
