Anyone else having problems with the Aston DBR1 pulling to the right.For me it seems to veer right with the slightest of touches and also wanders off to the right while driving.

I'll take her for a spin in a couple mins. I'll let you know.

Sometimes when you go round a right hander the car keeps going right it doesn't go back to centre.

Seems unnatural to be torque steer.

Wonder if it has anything to do with the de Dion tube rear suspension.

Could be.Maybe it is the correct handling for the car but I feel its not quite right.

It does do that. Interesting. Maybe because of the tires. They probably got time period correct tires on it. Yup. Faretti Vintage Race compound. Just checked.

Have you driven the Ford Escort in this game? It has a live rear axle and pulls to one side (to the right iirc). A de Dion suspension isn't a live axle but it does have a member that connects both sides to each other (sometimes called a dead axle). So that's why I'm wondering if that has something to do with how it handles. Paging Jussi!

ETA - Casey said this:

It is very softly sprung and can get a bit of rear torque steer when on power.

Also, that trailing link front suspension doesn't help. Small amounts of roll (such as from engine torque) can cause some undesirable bump steer effects. Not as noticeable in turns since you're already...well...turning.

Yip have driven the Escort but its no where near as bad as the Aston.

Wow...that's pretty bad then. I find the Escort close to undriveable.

I didn't think the Aston was to bad. Just old suspension technology.

I'll try it for myself this evening assuming I get my load cell brake mod installed.

it definitely feels weird..it is like steering right is a lot more loose than steering left...is this something that can fixed by changing tires or setting up the suspension?

Only has one tire type, Faretti Vintage Race compound.

That's the way those old cars were back then.. all over the place. They didn't make very stiff suspensions back then on anything.
