I've been doing some reading and trying to understand suspension dynamics better, in particular roll centres and how this effects balance.Whats going on at the mo is rear inside wheel lift is occurring and the owner rather it didn't, at the same time he wishes to have good travel to absorb bumps/dips but without the body roll.
I've spent a couple of days with Paul (@pollyp) where he was still getting inside wheel lift, but a very consistent and strong road holding capability. Every drivers different but to generalise the setup, stiffer damping rear, and higher rear tyre pressures are a good baseline
Not a criticism at all there were other photos illustrating the point I could have chosen just you'd posted this one up and your car had entered the discussion, so I thought it relevant. It seems a trait of micra when pushed hard which might suggest it happens to some extent regardless of the usual suspension settings.that pic of me on santapods site seem to be spreading around lots
not a prob. I was just commenting on how popular that official pic of me was going around and explaining what was going on at that moment to create such extreme position as a contribution towards the discussion.Not a criticism at all there were other photos illustrating the point I could have chosen just you'd posted this one up and your car had entered the discussion, so I thought it relevant.

Thinking it over Matt.Why? Not leaving the Micra fold are you?
This. Can't turn back now in my case, plus its a hobby and a challenge. Nor will I sell it tbh. I don't spend much time on it either it, I have a job and a life outside cars... Sometimes.if you really fancy a change paul ? i would go for something later model, that had performance from the factory personally, a ford ST or whatever, or a classic rwd car that will hold its value if you want to sell it on
the dosh that some of you guys spend on what was essentially a mass produced town car baffles me tbh
I am trying to resolve countless issue with it Paul. Win one and two issues pop up else where. The Micra was never designed for this deal, and I haven't even started abusing the car yet... Worse thing is I can't drive it on the roads .. I will lose my license I swear.That white weapons got too much grin factor built into it surely!
