Wink NE1 having this problem?

I have been noticing something odd. When I start my car it runs fin and drives normally, but once I hit an open road I notice that my car seems to accelerate to about 80mph. I have also noticed that I always seem to accelerate around corners.
Is this normal....anyone else seeing this?

haha

Your problem is quite normal if you have an untaimed driver behind the wheel. My car also has a similar problem but now due to exstreme wear on the tires from right hand turns it can only really corner to the left.

You must have a loose nut or something between the steering wheel and the front seat.

I think what you're problem is that your car is too fun to drive. If you ever want to drive nomally again, sell your kool car emidiatly and go buy a '70's era american car.
