    Can someone help me with a general problem

    Hi there.

    I could need some general setup advice.
    I have a general cornering problem. Shortly after turning into a corner I suddenly loose my cars rear
    and end in a heavy oversteering.
    Could this be a suspension related problem ?
    Im getting this problem again and again with different cars but the most often with the Vulcan.

    Thanks for your help and advices.

    Kind regards !

    could be a multitude of things. differential, brake bias, braking points, engine braking settings, suspension

    Engine Braking is usually the main culprit for me. If you increase the Engine Braking value, you mean the effect weaker meaning it won't slow as much in the corners, but increasing this a few notches usually makes the car way more stable when coming off the brakes and turning in when in the lower gears.

    Thanks for this tip, I will give it a try. And maybe I should think about just breaking a little bit more early to get through the corners more smooth.

    Is the Engine Braking in any way related or tied into the actual pedal braking applied, or just the engine rev?

    Just got another question with something strange I saw yesterday while driving.
    In long, full speed corners, I saw tire smoke coming up in my rear view mirrors but I don't know where it comes from ?!
