Title: Feedback from the Power Steering
Post by: stealth on April 04, 2014, 08:52:46 pm

Can the feedback from the Power Steering be changed to say 70% while in sports mode instead of the standard percentage.

feedback or resistance, resistance no, feedback, ditch the Pirelli, only fit for melting, get some steering feel back.

What tyres would you recommend, im not impressed by the Pirellis. I was thinking about Toyos or Avons next time.

I was a bit harsh on the Pirelli, they aren't good at low temp wetness, say between Nov and March IMO, OK for summer, hard wearing and last forever.

Michelin PSS work though can make the car feel a it busy on the commute as you do pick up more through the steering (not suited to really hard autotest cornering loads, they melt and delaminate as they are soft :) pushed harder here than they would ever be a t the average trackday), Toyos, I have t1 sports, seem OK, not wowed by them but perhaps because they were hyped up by an enthusiastic Lancer driver at the tyre shop, may suit his car better.
F1 Assym 2 seem pretty good allrounder if you are happy to oversize same for PS3.

I had a Panda 100HP before and Goodyear Eagle F1's were the OE tyre. I was really impressed by them and they had a bonus of a great looking tread. Apparently not as good in the wet (and useless in snow obviously) but I drive sensibly when its raining anyway. I was looking at the Toyo Proxes T1-R and the Avon ZZ3 when the Pirellis are worn out.
