View Full Version : Scirocco torque steer
Going from my trusty FR to test drive Scirocco GT today and it felt great in lots of ways but was slightly shocked by level of torque steer. This was noticeably more than on my Bluefinned FR.
Given that it is basically the same engine as mine - and with less torque - what could explain this?
I am looking at this change over too from my 1.9TDi MK2. Love the scirocco in Viper Green :drool:
Sorry I cannot help with your question though lol
Torque steer isn't just about torque (despite the title! :) ), the entire steering geometry can be responsible. It only needs a slight change in one or more angles and the behaviour of the car can be changed. Even the wheel and tyre dimensions can have an effect.
Hmm, interesting. I should have done a bit more research on torque steer. It seems there are more people online complaining about this with the Scirocco.
Shame, it was a cracking motor otherwise, with noticeably better handling than the vanilla, unmodded FR.
