the car doesnt understeer much if any. It has a 25mm rear bar, stock front bar. 275wide front tires and 225 rear. I know i probably should use trail braking or left foot braking more to get the car to rotate. I do use throttle lifts to get it to turn in some situations. but so far I've found that i've trained my self to do all my braking straight, else it will loop right around.

maybe I've got too much over steer, and should dial it out with a bigger front bar, so I can drive better use the oversteer rotation
