    I agree. Check tyre pressures. I run mine on 18psi and it transformed the handling and made for a far less bumpy ride! Think how light the car is now compared to it's doner car! Gareth.

    Yes, we didn't have a tyre pressure gauge when I picked the car up so couldn't check before I drove it home, but suspect that they're a bit on the high side.

    I can check the tracking as I have a really accurate home made tracking gauge which we used to use when we were hillclimbing Imps and Ginettas.

    I was always messing about with suspension geometry, spring rates, tyres/tyre pressure, different dampers etc back in those days as we figured it was the best way to try and beat the bigger cars with more bhp! My Marlin has a standard 2.0 pinto engine with about 95 bhp (?) - I can't tell you how much money it used to cost us to try and get 90+ bhp out of a 998cc Imp engine...!
