Default Oversteer or Understeer

Do mustangs naturally have more of an oversteer, or understeer? I've heard they have pretty bad understeer, but mine can be very tail happy, especially in wet weather. I have no mods, so I'm wondering if they have more under/oversteer?

Default RE: Oversteer or Understeer

Depends, comming out of hard turns they have bad oversteer, well V8s anyways, but naturally they're more understeered than over, going into a series of hard turns at a decent speed, they deffinitly have understeer, just depends on the road/driving conditions.

"SARCASM" Well, see how easily it kicks out when comming into a 60+ degree turn at 70+ MPH, you're unless you drift that car into the turn, you're gonna find the car very hard to steer.

Default RE: Oversteer or Understeer

stangs as well as most oher rwd's exhibit oversteer far more than understeer like fwd's

understeer occurs when you run 245's up front and 275's out back. also known as plowing, the fronts don't have enough meat to keep up with the rear.

run 245's or 275's on all four corners and you will be more likely to oversteer 9 times out of 10 unless it's wet and even then oversteer is more common
