    Default Low speed understeer

    Diagnose this one for me:

    Car handles fine at normal speed. But during slow cornering it's almost as if I need to turn in more for the steering to 'bite'.

    Just turned (left) into my drive at about 5mph, the steering wheel was pointing probably between 10-11pm (on the imaginary clock face) and the car carried pretty much straight on! From this point of view it seems like massive steering play, but, at speed in a straight line any slight movement in the steering wheel will make the car weave which rules out steering play

    Front tyres are slightly worn on the outer edge, so I guess could be pulling.

    Tracking maybe?
