comment Tyre equivalency
Correcting understeer is something every driver can do, releasing the throttle is an reaction every driver does instinctively. Oversteer is much harder to control, releasing the throttle causes the car to slide to the other side and it will end to a lamppost or in a ditch.

comment Is it okay to leave a car for 5 months without driving it?
Brian: Filling up the tank has also one big other advantage. It prevents rust. Your remarks about shelf life are right, but I'd rather drain the tank and fill it up again when I start using the car again, just to be sure.

comment Sudden Oversteer - What Might Be the Cause
Good point about the lift-off oversteer. :) Maybe it's worth mentioning that the uneven lenght of the drive shafts are also part of the 'problem'. Torque steer will force your steering wheel to the side with the shortest drive shaft. That'll almost always be the left-side. On a FWD car the left driveshaft is shorter because the gearbox with the differential is often on the left side of the engine.
