thanks dudes
I experienced the same thing before on that same track. I rebuilt my shocks, changed the silicon o-rings and made sure every single shock was rebuilt flawlessly. I didn't have the left hander problem anymore. Check your steering end points and some bind in the steering posts. Your car felt kinda sluggish when I was turning the wheels left left to right right to left. It kinda didn't want to center itself correctly when you let go of the wheel.

Hong Kong? did I hear you right? Well, let me know in advance because I could schedule a vacation around that time and show you around town. I still have a house there too. Right in the center of Causeway Bay where millions of people crossed the street every single day. LOL..

Cool... let you know in advance..
We can take Randman with us and tear up the town...
Hopefully the Asia trip goes as plan and my wife doesn't change her mind like going to Europe instead...

Unfortunately no, the closest track that I know of is located in the old Kai Tak airport running on tarmac which is about 1/2 hour away and one is Sun Guy, which is 1 hours away on metro. We could drive my car there but it's a 1/2 walk from the apartment complex to the parking structure. It was the cheapest parking space I could find at US$250 per month just to rent a parking space.

No, no Europe.

Tell you wife we can stop in the Phillipines and Bangkok so she can do some shopping.. I've heard those guys in Hong Kong are top notch racers and extremely die-hard. Sometimes running in the rain with covered up speedo and chassis..
