Ceilidh, remember this saying (from Henry Manney at R&T, IIRC, "Hark the Herald axles swing"? Good thing we're not talking about camber compensators in VW bugs to keep the swing axles from jacking up. Now that was scary. Thanks for your post: at least I didn't run out and yank the Shine rear bar out of my wagon. I realize the TT spindles negative more positive camber as the car rolls, but they go postiive eventually. And the relationship between front and rear was, I think, what got the FWD TT in trouble.

Peter, I always buy Car and What Car when I'm traveling through Heathrow (can't read Italian) and the tests are so much more informative than ones in the US. And of course they get all the good cars, too. Maybe it's time to follow Dick Shine's advice, and leave everything alone and get better tires.
