I'm not commenting on the accuracy or validity of any set up or measurements
We have :-
Car A, aligned to Audi specifications (vehicle unladen, 1/4 tank etc) which
does not appear to exhibit a particular handling phenomenon ('spider bite',
'something strange' - call it what you will).
Car B, aligned to similar specifications (but with the vehicle loaded to
driver weight) which appears to exhibit a particular handling phenomenon
('spider bite', 'something strange' - call it what you will).
Following the argument that the rubber components in the suspension distort
when the car is loaded, car A will have a different alignment when driven,
whereas any change in the alignment of car B will be much smaller, perhaps
very close to no change.
Could this be why car A doesn't bite but car B does?
May be there are valid reasons behind the Audi specifications after all. Of
course the one thing that we can't do is to drive car A without adding a
drivers weight and see if it bites - telekinesis anybody?
