Default GT Wagon Oversteer???

I have an '02 GT Wagon. It seems to have oversteer when throttling the car through corners on the snow (hak 1's in use). My RS had to be flicked to do this. It seems natural, almost like rear wheel drive.

Has anyone else noticed this?

Thanks and Happy Holidays,

Absolutly... of course I see it more on wet pavement here in seattle... In the dry, the front end will push out on hard throttle, but soak the back end or drop it on the snow (or mud) and you get the back end out first. I've ended up backwards more than I care to talk about when I've been "trying too hard" on the RallyX course.

Why do they do it this way? I thought maybe my AWD wasn't working properly. The RS was set up for push. I thought company set up cars for understeer because it was safer. The RS might have been more fun set up this way.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,

I attribute it to the fact that we have 80-lbs more weight sitting back behind the rear axle. I always thought it may be due to the 20mm Whiteline I am running in back... do you have a Swaybar?

.. but I ain't complaining, it sure is fun!
