[Biturbos4] Wheel bearing

Actually, it depends on which race and/or the failure mode of the bearing.
In general the noise occurs when lightly loaded.  I.E. right wheel bearing
makes more noise when turning right.

I think some were unclear (certainly Wes was):  When you turn to the right,
you actually LOAD up the left suspension.  The load/weight of the car is
shifted to the left when turning right.  When turning right, the right side
has less bearing (and suspension/tire) load and a failing right wheel
bearing will make more noise.  Make sense?

That's a good 95% rule.
