I'm creating this thread since it was beginning to hijack the "Are there any Lancia owner's out there?" thread.
So far my Fulvia has proven to be a wild ride. I've got some "handling" issues that make it, shall we say, less pleasant to drive than the Alfa.
We've established my red Koni's should go, which would soften up the ride. I stated my next issue would then be front wheel rub in hard cornering (which it already does in tight hairpins). I'm currently running 175/65 R14 tires, don't know what it should be running, but these look good on the wheels
I realize that as Shaun pointed out in the other thread - the shocks don't change the wheel travel, but softer shocks will allow the wheels to travel themselves into the fender more than they already do! lol
Mind you - none of this is a factor in normal day to day driving, only when I take it on local rallies and wind the bugger up, do I notice these issues. The problem is that it begs to be driven hard - but when you try to do that, it starts feeling sketchy and loses a lot of the fun factor. I'm beginning to suspect the spinout I did on the Shamrock rally was more a result of the set up on the car than it was driver error (though I'm not afraid to take full blame
), since the other two Fulvias on that tour were running at approximately the same speed, but handled the turn without any drama?
Awaiting any and all advice, thanks!
