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
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.
