    weaving/bad tramlining?

    Hiya, recently did a dwyb day, all went great bar some minor overheating,

    the next day however I noticed the car occasionally weaved quiote noticeably as if it was tramlining left then right?

    the suspension is old and very probably shagged, would this be the cause (i'm betting it is)

    anyone else had it happen?

    Are you still rocking the same front tyres as you drifted on or have they been changed?

    I had it happen when I had shagged ball joints at the front. It was most noticable after turning a corner when you straightened the wheel again, but it also tramlined over changes in road surface and on wide white lines.

    Worn ball joints, suspension and bushes emphasizes tramlining along with tyre choice

    Sounds like you've battered your tyres.

    swapping the tyres sorted it, after the last day I had exact same issues again, pretty odd the way it causes it
