I've had a '66 oversteer violently.  I was driving to the gas station to
adjust my tire pressures after rotating the tires.  I wonder if it could
have been related to having 32psi in the front and 18psi in the back?  LOL

cornering at 25-30 mph they do understeer.  Bit there is a transition point
as speed increases where they ALL shift into oversteer.
