Danny also described the car has very loose in left hand corners.  This,
coupled with the understeering through T6 very likely implies a wedge
problem (cross weight)  that resulted from his earlier incident.  I'm
guessing that if the car were put on scales that wedge would be something
less than 50%, possibly substantially less.

Also, pet peeve, load is transferred as the car
brakes/accelerates/corners....not weight.  Semantics I suppose, but it seems
absurd to say weight transfer...not like your body physically moves forward
in the car when you hit the brake pedal.
