Oversteering T3

Broke a Swaybar "U" clamp on the T3 (I run a heavier bar). Ford took a few days to get me the right replacement U clamp (the parts fisch turns up the wrong one). Ive been running without the front bar and man does it oversreer(it usually understeers)

Would have thought beeing a V8 RWD with that amount of power and torque it would oversteer anyway?

Sory no pics

You need way more than 250kw to oversteer at over 80kph.
Unless you can break traction you just get worse understeer at speed. The only way to even get neutral let alone oversteer at speed is to back off viciously on the limit in a low gear (ie at revs)
