Bob,

I have not experienced any significant understeer on the race track, even on corners in which I am not braking for the turn, such as the uphill esses at Watkins Glen. In most corners, I am using some degree of braking, so that would put the weight on the front tires and minimize understeer (as you well know).

Looking forward to seeing what people have to say and if it is more prevalent with one style of cobra, versus another. What tires are you using? Do you think that the understeer is related to grip, weight transfer to the front, weight distribution, alignment? Just trying to hypothesize at this point.

Good luck.

Jim
